Default Get PIM data without BES temporarily?

Please Login to Remove!

We bought in on verizon's deal where if you get 5 blackberry devices, you get 5 cal's for free.. Well what we didn't know is that they have to all be activated and it takes about 2-3 days to get the CAL's after they've been activated.

How can i get all 5 devices loaded with the users contacts without having a CAL for them yet? I don't want to mess anything up with I do get the CAL's and try to get them on the BES.

You can use the Desktop Manager for PIM sync.

Install the BES and add the users to it without the additional CALs. It should still allow you to add the users and function properly, despite the warning message you'll receive. Add the CALs later and there will no interruption of service for your temporary non-compliance.

That's yet to be determined. Some have run it for years. The general thought is that RIM has no means of determining if you're running a non-compliant BES, in terms of user licensing. However, if they should ever catch wind of it and decide to audit you (unlikely in such a small environment), then the cat would be most certainly out of the bag. Just work on the honor system and get them when you can get them, as it seems you are already on your way to doing so in the short-term.

ahh great. I didn't know it worked like that. We defiantly have them coming, just don't want the users to be without mobile email for a few days.

does the same hold true for blackberry professional software? When i click add user it says over cal limit and doesn't add it... If i used berrystats, it adds the users, but i want to make sure it won't stop my free cal user from working
