    Proxy settings are not available on Android phones without either rooting your phone or using a transparent proxy setup on your wireless LAN.

    We're not allowed to have our mobiles switched on in school ... no-one is. Even if we did, the signal is so poor that it would be a waste of time anyway, so once we're out and about we're not contactable.

    What about a windows mobile HTC handset?

    A HD2 or similar?

    Would work out of the box with any exchange setup that has activesync enabled, and you should be able to pick them up cheap because windows mobile is HORRIBLE.....but hey, if its only a work phone ;-)

    Hey! I love my HD2! Admittedly, it was a bit of a shock when Sense stopped working for a while (I think it was a conflict with a home page editor) but there's a wealth of free software and Windows Mobile seems to be the only phone OS to offer a decent encryption solution (FreeOFTE).

    Had it 2 or 3 months now, but when I was looking I couldn't find any cheap handset only deals, and contracts weren't great until Virgin got in some refurbs.

    BES is a horrible pile of java based irritation, Windows Mobile devices with activesync on are much nicer from a managment side. The issue is battery usage on wireless, wireless is quite power hungry and will usually drain most devices well before a work day is done. Think about extended life batteries or frequent charging if going this way.

    What type of phone system do you use? Modern phone systems like a virtual PBX have virtual extensions which allows any phone number to be assigned. These extensions have their own configuration such as call forwarding, call screening, answering rules, voicemail, etc.
