8703e and voice commands

2. Does all incoming and outgoing email have to be via blackberry's email address or can you set it up for POP accounts?

3. How extensive is the PIM in regards to the amount of options that can be stored in the calendar and contact info and can it synchronize with desktop software like the Palm for updating on the laptop of dates, to-do's and contact info? Does it duplicate the info or actually match?

You should call your carrier if you don't know about this and tell them you want to access POP e-mail and they can help further (or do a search over at www.howardforums.com in the RIM forum).
