If your company have its own Blackberry servers (BES), then MTNL is cheapest provider in Mumbai. It will cost just 400 Rs per month for unlimited GPRS / EDGE.

Welcome to MTNL VAS

Otherwise, cost depends on understanding between company and provider (usually between 900 and 500 per month) that depends on number of users.

Company does not have its own BES. What exactly do you mean by "understanding between company and provider"?

All employees in my company (~120) are on Vodafone. So will they give preferential rates for Blackberry service? I checked Voda website and they have the unlimited package for Rs 1099 pm. I guess this will cover the 24x7 GPRS connectivity right? What are the extras on top of this?

With 120 Employees you will not get any discount. Cost will be around 1000 per month. 1099 package covers 24x7 connectivity.

With 120 connections, it would be cheaper to get your own server + MTNL unlimited package.

MS Direct Push keeps an SSH connection alive for the Push to work. You need to switch off OTA ActiveSync (Direct push uses this) for it to stop reconnecting. BB Connect on WiMo devices also piggy-backs over OTA ActiveSync. Not sure of BB Connect on Nokia.

Any one using 6210 Navigator? Any issues in that phone?

And which will be better 6210 Navi vs 5610? On paper 6210 looks good!

Thanks DerAlte, that is a useful information indeed.

Let me leave it like this at the moment and see how it goes. I will think of controlling it, if I exceed my data plan.

Subhiksha will buy your old mobile. But your corner shop might give yo ubest rates for the mobile. Buy from Subhiksha and sell at some small shop.

The Mobile Store/Subhiskha will exchange but will give a very low price. e.g. I was offered 2k for my 10 month old Nokia E50, which I otherwise managed to sell for 4.5k through ebay.

The other option - as netfreak suggested is your friendly neighborhood mobile wallah

Default Resale price of Nokia E51

I am looking at selling my three month old Nokia E51, how much should I realistically expect to get for it?
(As new condition, with bill and nine months warranty).
I am looking at replacing it with a HTC Touch (I just can't get on with S60). Is it still worth buying at approx Rs14K?

Guys, could you help me with reviews on Nokia 5610 (slider), 5310 and the new SE G700? How is the battery life of 5610 and SE 700 specifically?

Also, is the N73 still a good buy at 11k? I had the first batch of N73/N80 and despite software/firmware upgrades, it was giving some trouble or the other (hangs at times etc). Is that still a reality?

I am looking to buy a phone for my wife. As basic as possible, as she doesnt fancy gadgets as much as I do.
1. Budget - 10k +/-2k
2. Features needed - good battery life, decent camera (2 MP would do)
3. Preference would be Nokia, unless SE has come up with a brilliant phone in that range

Today I bought Nokia E71.
It is very light phone compare to E61i, and very fast.
