I currently have a HTC Thunderbolt but REALLY want to move to WP7. I just forced a HTC Trophy on my wife the other day (she was reluctant since it doesn't have a physical keyboard), and it turns out she is really loving it (coming from a Pre/Original Droid). She can't get over how responsive it is - it just works! Imagine that. Since we're both on Verizon the Trophy would be my only option, though I'm hoping a 4G phone will come at some point.
I work for a bank and our systems are, as you can imagine, very locked down. The bank officially supports Blackberry or Android/iPhone by way of the Good Technology app (Good Technology). I understand Good is working on a WP7 offering that should be ready in Q4, however I was wondering whether I really need to wait for that.
I am almost positive I will get zero support from IT for trying to utilize a WP7 device directly w/ exchange since we have the options listed above. We do have outlook web, and when setting up my wife's phone I saw there was a section for that....
The crux of my question is whether it should absolutely be possible for me to get email & calendar (and in a perfect world tasks) up and running without the assistance of my IT department or whether it's likely necessary since we're so locked down. I don't know what version of Exchange we're running (can I see that from my Outlook client?), but thought I'd ask you experts for opinons.
Thanks for any help.
