What Will You Do If BlackBerry Shuts Down?

I seriously doubt BlackBerry service will shut down, due to court action, as RIM has said they have a software work around in case a court orders them to shut down. However, you should keep a plan or two in mind. Talk to your company’s IT person and talk to your service provider about alternative mobile email solutions.
The Washington Post writes Go window shopping for various types of smartphones. Hold them, tap on their keyboards, look at their other functions. Wireless e-mail service providers list supported devices on their Web sites.
Remember that e-mail on a mobile phone usually uses data minutes, not voice minutes. Don’t go out and change the service plan on your cell phone, thinking that you’ll need those minutes for e-mail.
