I have a feeling I will get a lecture for this....
I currently have an 8700 working just fine with my company's BES. However, I have recently purchased a used Pearl. Everything works fine on the Pearl except for Enterprise Activation. Come to find out, my company has a restriction on their BES to only allow 8700's on the BES server.
I also want to point out that i am able to run enterprise activation via Dekstop Manager without requiring a password (I plug the device in, it connects to exchange, and EA just starts automatically).
Anyone know of anyway around this? Here are ideas I have come up with (with no success):
1. Maybe device manager stores the hardware ID in the registry for the device. If so, can I change it to reflect an 8700?
2. Actually change the hardware id on the pearl (doubt it as it sounds like it is stored in the ROM). Please note -- I don't want to change the device id / PIN ... just the fact that the bb shows up as an 8100.
3. I am grasping at this one ... i know RIM exposes getDeviceName as a part of its API. Potentially write a little java app to do the equivalent of setDeviceName.?.
Thoughts? Other ideas?
It is also worth mentioning that I did try to Switch Device Wizard, and it did not work either....
