Helio Coverage Map

Does anyone know, the grey part of their coverage maps, do you still get good service and can you still send texts, IM's, and emails while in a grey zone?

Microsoft Mail Exchange

Anyone else having problems being able to sync email, calendar, contacts, etc.? I have owned this phone for almost 2 weeks and the Microsoft mail exchange has yet to work. Helio says they are trying to fix the problem, but has yet to. Wondering if others are having this problem or are things working correctly. I am also having problems with yahoo being able to download emails. Let me know. Thanks.

SMS Questions...?

I'm seriously considering going to Helio for the Ocean or possibly the Drift...they both look absolutely awesome. I just have a couple Q's before i make the big jump...:

1) do any of the phones have threaded SMS? or is that only a palm/Rim smartphone thing?

2) Do any of the phones have EMS? (where you can send preloaded animations and texts with more than 160 characters)

3) Is there a 30-day trial period?

TIA for your answers guys!!

Data usage

I just talked to a helio representative and he said that you can go over your data limit each month (which is 160 mb) if you use a site like youtube 2 hours a day or more i would be using the web ALLOT if i got a helio so how easy would it be for me to go over?

I am looking at the Ocean, i see it has Microsoft Exchange syncing up and running. My question is in regards to a local install of Outlook 2003 on a PC. Can I sync the Calendar with that on on the Ocean. Or is there a different option someone has found for having a calendar online or on a system and being able to sycn / view/ edit it with the Ocean?

Please let me know, thanks
