We will move to one or both of these early next year.
Currently have data only tariffs for business email etc, no voice.

But we will be moving to an IP phone system (shoretel) i believe this will allow us to integrate an app into a mobile device for remote workers.

Can anyone confirm what tariffs we'd be looking at for data and voice this time round (approx 10 users), 500mb and 100-200 mins.
and
Does shoretel support the latest blackberries Q & Z 10's for remote working?

Thanks

Shortel does not currently support BB 10 series phones. Here is a list of supported devices:

It may still be coming. Per an article in May 2013:

"Blackberry 10 is not presently supported. Romanin said that ShoreTel was "still investing in BlackBerry."

Mentioning tariffs, I am assuming you are in the UK. I am not familiar with those since I am in the US, but here is a link I found with some general information:

I would be cautious about making much of an investment in BlackBerry at this time. Their latest handset was not as well received as they hoped and I see Research In Motion at best being acquired by a larger entity, or at worst disappearing.

There are still a lot of companies heavily invested in Blackberry, including the one I work for. Their largest customer in the US is the government. While their sales have suffered in the US, they are still huge in Asia and Europe. The Q10 sold out within two hours of hitting the stores in the UK. Finally, for those of us that love the qwerty keyboard, the Q10 is the way to go.
