Not entirely true... in Europe at least you have to make sure you buy a corporate model rather than Consumer. A consumer handset will not work with the BES.

I understand that the handset is the same but it is registered on the RIM network differently.

Also, if you wirelessly activate a European handset, it will look at rather than the SRP address associated with a US server - I wouldnt be surprised if this causes some issues although I havent any direct experience.
