    Wife has to carry two phones because new employer only supports BlackBerry and Iphone with Enterprise Server...


    1. Is there an enterprise Server version and service for Sprint Android?
    2. Does the IT deparment there need to run something extra on their servers to support Android Enterprise? Big deal?
    3. What exactly does Enterprise server introduce? Does it mean they can add a policy to her phone? Will they be able to monitor phone activity? What activity? Calls?, Internet traffic? SMS?

    Side question. If I am able to add a corporate email address to the phone (not manually) and it adds the account via pop (automatically) and it works but only with 30 minute get refreshes and only for email, no calendars or contacts refreshing. Will it also likely work if I add it manually through exchange active sync on the phone ? I have not tried since I don't know the main exchange server address. Does this tie into Enterprise server in any way? When Enterprise server is enabled, you won't be able to add an email via pop or activesync right?unless they set it up and you have enterprise level service?

    Thanks!

    Android will work with Microsoft Exchange.

    it depends on each company so your wife should contact her IT department to see if they will allow android devices on their servers.

    There is no Enterprise server for iPhone any more than there is for Android. Neither exist. Both get email via ActiveSync. Different companies have different policies on what phones they'll allow access to Exchange.

    Interesting.

    Would you know ..

    Is activesync enabled by user? Can it be enabled for only specific clients? Does It have to do anything physically on the phone, or does the client just need to know their user, password and the exchange server after it's enabled.
