Default BIS and BES

Please Login to Remove!

Pardon my ignorance:

I just purchased a personal Blackberry account last week with I believe is BIS ($30 plan). I run windows 2003 enterprise, exchange 2003, and I just installed BES Express and I am looking to connect my 8330.

Is there no way to do this other than purchasing the BES plan through Verizon? Why do we need a blackberry infrastructure in Verizon to make this happen? I have received the "Undeliverable: RIM....." message that was sent to [email address] from my BES Express server, and I assume that is the message that was not sent through the Verizon Blackberry infrastructure to my 8330 curve?

Any insight would be greatly appreciated.

Welcome to the forums.

To get a better understanding of BIS vs. BES, look here : Comparing BlackBerry Internet Service and BlackBerry Enterprise Server features

You will need the BES plan to activate your device on the server.
