Default BB Professional License Limit

Please Login to Remove!

I have BB professional (free download) with a single user license. It is currently married to a BB Curve 8300 device. I am considering upgrading the BB to a new 3g model as they come down in price. Assuming it is a substitution rather than addition of a new device, can I still use my single user license for the new device? Is there a "how to" somewhere that shows how to reconfigure the BES/professional software to marry the new device? Thanks much.

Yes. Launch BB Manager on the server and set a new EA password and then use that password to activate for the device.

Hey legalkix,
The licences aren't attached to the device it's self, more of just a simple count of how many devices you can have on your BES at any one time, so like hdawg said, just set a new activation password on the BES, and start the wireless activation process on your new BB!

Any issues, let us know and we'll see if we can help more!

That Curve PIN you register for BPS to get 1 cal, not dedicate to your Curve.

But that curve PIN cannot use again to register to get 1 cal for BPS.

if you get a new device, dont forget to get a new CAL for this one,
Even, if you dont need it now, 2 Cals are better then one.
