Default Buying Licence

Please Login to Remove!

I have the free one user Small Business Edition of BES and now want to add a couple more users. From what I can tell, I need to buy the 5 User pack right?

Since I live outside the US, is there a place that someone here can recommend? I've googled and came up with quite a few "discounted" BES Licence sellers like Are these legal?

Lastly, since I have the free 1 user, will I HAVE to buy the $1099/5 user first or can I simply purchase CAL Licence?

You should be able to just buy additional CAL license. We just added 5 more licenses to our server for $600 from RIM.

I have purchased Cals from multiple times. I have had no issues with them. From what I have found the offer the best deal around.

Ebay on occassion will have some good deals. Sometimes you have to by the full BES and Cals, but if the price is right it makes sense. Then just use the Cals.
