    So, does only business accounts get this software, or is this for anyone?  Also, is there a charge for the software?  Is this only available for the phones listed in the press release?

      Your company needs GOOD servers. It like blackberry service – for android or iphone. The software works on any android phone. It offers additional security and allows IT to set policy over the app (the app can detect root, require passwords, etc)

      I’ve been using GOOD for almost a year now on t-mobile. Not sure what this press release is about other than to try to get some news headlines, which apparently, has worked.

        you should take a look at MaaS360… does everything and more for Android and iOS and a lot faster to implement and you don’t need to tie in any infrastructure to your current environment.  They are SaS 70 type 2 compliant as well.

          My company uses maas360 too. I’ve never tried Good, but everyone here (in the IT dept. at least!) Loves maas360.

    I use it to extreme levels. Love it for the company I work for. The only thing I don’t like is the ability to open documents for editing on Documents to Go. 

    You cannot download documents to edit. You can view them, and that is all. And if I am not wrong, the View Attachment feature was just introduced no more than 2 weeks ago.

    But still love the app. Great incorporation with the Exchange address book and calendar. Now, all I need is a syncing with Android Calendar so I can stay on top of both, my meetings and Facebook birthday notifications.

    This is a horrid app that we use to allow Android phones on our multi billion dollar network. Most users have been so frustrated that they have begged for the  BB. Read the comments in the app store. 

    STAY AWAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
