Default Populating Messenger Via BES

Please Login to Remove!

Hello,

I have a quick question. Is it possible to auto-populate the Blackberry Messenger contact list, with users on our BES server? IE we deploy a new phone, and we can push all the users currently on our BES server to show up on their blackberry messenger without having to manually add them?

Thanks.

Welcome to the forums.

Take a look here:

I think the simple answer is no but I am no BBM expert. That thread is about taking your BBM contacts with you when you change phone, which does work fine on 4.5+. If you are talking about having a new EA for a new user populate BBM with all BES users, I think it's a no, but would like to now how if it's a yes .

Not in BES 4.1.x
I have not fully explored this functionality in 5 - what version of BES are you on?

Anyway, for 4.1.6 BBM data on devices is backed up and restored when a new device EA'd, but there is no way to push a list of BBM contacts from BES to BBs.
