    Broke down and asked for a work phone because I didn't want company to have security controls on my phone and without doing so work email bites because we can't use a standard client.

    Ugh.... Iphone 6S.....how boring.....eventually it will be a 7....still boring.

    What are you using for work?

    That's where apps like Parallel or Samsung's Secure Folder come in handy: You can have a virtual phone inside your phone and your company can take control of that if they want. If the control comes when you activate your Exchange account, however, I strongly recommend you spend 9 bucks and get Nine. You still get all the system-level integration of e-mail, calendar, contacts, notes, etc. as the stock client, BUT you get to apply the company security policy JUST to the app, so the rest of your phone is yours to secure as you see fit (my company forced me to do that when they disabled my Smart Lock capabilities last year... sorry boss, but when I'm in the pool and my BT headphones are connected, I can't have my phone locked while I swim, thank you very screw you).

    My V20, we use Google Apps for our calendar, email, etc. Android is perfect for that.

    Well as of right now I'm using my personal phone for work as well. My T-Mobile Galaxy S7 Edge we use Microsoft Exchange and I have full email access.

    Yeah, but that also means that your company has security control over your personal device. They might not enforce it, but they do. That's why I chose to use Nine, because it keeps the corporate security policy (whatever it may be) confined to the app, and not applied to the whole phone.

    If they want me to work, take calls, etc, they can give me a phone. But I'll never do work on my personal phone given the policies they have in place.

    Well that may be but I'm not bound by them by any means. It's my personal phone and I can keep it sell it or do whatever I choose. No phone brand restrictions. My company's company phones are strictly iPhone's.

    Well, my company does give me a phone... but I opted for them paying my personal bill and me using my personal phone instead. Work phones are iPhones, and they don't have free data when abroad like mine does. So it's better for me than carrying around two phones. And with Google Voice, I can keep my work phone number separate from my personal phone and still use just one device. Win Win.

    If it works out that's excellent.

    If I use my personal device for exchange, I have to consent to remote wipe. No thanks.

    Again, that's where 'virtual desktop' apps come in handy, or in the case of Nine, even better. Apps like Parallel or Secure Folder will contain the corporate security to the virtual space, but it usually doesn't integrate calendar/contact data with the rest of the phone. Nine does. For all intents and purposes, it works just as the stock e-mail app from your phone, BUT you can choose to contain your corporate policies to the app and not the phone, so a remote wipe command while your corporate account is active on Nine would just prompt the app to delete all data from itself and delete the account information, not fully wipe the entire device.

    If that works out for most people that's great but I'm not risking it with my personal device. I don't trust the corporate language in the policy so I just choose to keep it away from my personal device.

    If they want me away from the office, they can buy me a phone. Otherwise I'll enjoy my peace and quiet away from there.

    That wouldn't be allowed nor does it work in my line of work because it goes beyond protecting normal cyber security assets.

    V20 because that's what I have and I'm making the comparison to what anyone else is using for work. It's OK if someone doesn't have a V20.

    It's been hard for me to use an iPhone from any of my Androids when forced to do so because they were always bigger screens no matter how small an Android I owned. I have really tried to like the IPhone but just can't do it though they do some things well.

    I was going to mention my iPad in my other post because ironically I'm OK with the IPad. I had a Toshiba tablet but Toshiba bailed early on updates and it's laggy as hell because it's a few years old.

    Well, my Samsung is about 3 yrs old so it's laggy and the battery is shot, but I still enjoy it. I guess the iPad is better than the iPhone, but I use both of them under protest, lol.

    I'm going to say it's better because it's bigger and I use it a lot with Zagg folio keyboard so it's like having a notebook.

    If I had a work phone it would most likely be an iPhone. Since I dabble in Android enough I would just have them give me an iPhone for work to see how the other side lives.

    We are on exchange and we tie in with Airwatch Agent and use the stock iPhone email app. If you use your own Android device I believe the only difference is we use Touchdown for email. The additional annoyance with using your own device is that you have to enter a pin to unlock phone and a second pin for email.
    The problematic issue with using your own device is that they have the right to lock it down and wipe the device.... No thanks
    The only way you can use your own without that is to use Citrix Receiver and that is a horrible way to access email and corporate intranet sites and apps in virtual mode.

    For work it's perfect except in my case I hate the small size of the standard iPhone.... Clean and simple. IOS handles productivity adequately. For personal use I thinks it's great for non-technical users except that media and software is locked down through ITunes. Most non-technical users seem OK with that to some degree.

    I'm a trucker, and my current company used to require a cell phone to communicate with the office during the day. They didn't force any special restrictions on the phone, and just paid us $20/mo to compensate for any additional data or minute costs. So I've always used mine for work. Though now we have in cab computers for communications, so they removed the phone requirement and the $20/mo.
