For the guys on LPL - I'm joining LPL in a month or so.  I wanted to know if I can have an iphone and get my email from my LPL email account on that phone? 

Preferably have the option to get both my gmail and LPL email on the phone.  Thanks

Don't think you will want to do that.....maybe just your gmail. Way too much security is required to do that on a phone....

It can be done and LPL allows it.

Can you elaborate?  Does LPL use web-based e-mail (i.e. Outlook Web Access) vs. Exchange Server?  Just curious.  I am looking at getting a new PDA phone, and it seems to me that a good web-based phoen will be better for my purposes than a Blackberry.  Jones does not yet allow e-mail access via phones (we get calander, portfolio, etc.).  Their explanation was the same as your's - has to do with security.  But we use Outlook Web Access, not Outlook Exchange server-based e-mail.

Check out the Blackberry Tour. It has a more robust web based platform than the old BB's. No more of that weird semi-internet crap that the old BB's used to have. I bought it, love it. JonesLink works well on it (well...as well as JonesLink works on any phone).

I don't know about that part other than it is a SSL. My point is if you use a device for business and personal use, you are actually going to have to understand that anything on the device can be looked at in an audit. If you access both your business emails and personal emails from the same device then they can be looked at in an audit. LPL does allow it, no doubt. I am just not sure that I would personally use it.

Got it.  Thanks Noggin.  I am guessing that's one of the reasons Jones is avoiding it right now.

 
As far as the BB Tour vs. the Palm Pre, I have been told be numerous people that the Pre would be much better for web-based applications (including web-based e-mail), and the BB's would be much better for e-mail (exchange server e-mail), which is what most people use BB's for.  I don't know if that's 100% correct, which is why I'm asking.  I haven't decided yet....

interesting this is on here....i don't know who the kingpin is behind this term but i "roogled" because this topic came up in our office how iphones are becoming the best smartphones out there, anyone use them for business?  opinions?

I've had bad luck with messages being delayed on the iphone. sometimes a message takes 12 hours to make it to my phone. I would never use it for work.

I just replaced my old cell with the LG Chocolate Touch, and am VERY happy with it.  It does a good job of handling the web, and webmail.  The Visual Voicemail service allows me to listen to voicemail and see who's calling w/o having to dial the voicemail number.
