OK, smarty. MS Exchange is a piece of server software that provides smtp, pop3, imap and proprietary Exchange email capabilities. It is closely integrated with Microsoft Outlook and provides a server based version of not only your e-mail, but your calendar, contacts, etc. If you would like me to explain the seven layers of the OSI model to you, I can do that as well.

Now, on with the real topic.

To those of you who think that Tracfone is for "old people", I'm not an old person, I'm 27. I am a network administrator for a state agency. I have a lot of use for a PDA/Smartphone. However, since I bought my tracfone in January, I have used 50 minutes of airtime. I have Vonage (unlimited nationwide+ calling) at home and have a separate cell phone (no smartphone) for work. I am always reachable and just don't use my personal cell for talking much. Data on the other hand, would just make my day. I would especially love it if I could get a tracfone smartphone with WiFi capability...then I wouldn't even need a data plan, as I am within range of a wifi network 99% of the time anyway. Even without full data access, I would love to not have to buy a separate PDA from my phone.
