Smile Multipule BES Servers and Multipule Devices connecting to one Exchange Email Account

Please Login to Remove!

We are UK based company expanding in to the US.

To avoid roaming data charges, we want to give our users who travel back and forth a Blackberry Device running on the BES server in the US.

Can they have their UK Blackberry device connected to BES server in the UK accessing their MS Exchange emails and have another device connected to the US BES server accessing the same UK based MS Exchange email account.

Many thanks in advance!!

The roaming data charges are not dependent on where your server is, but who the home carrier of your SIM card is.

So you could get a UK SIM and a US SIM for them. You only need one device. They can swap SIMs when they travel.

Nope. The BES writes info to the mailbox and when you try to add the user to a second BES, you get a warning message about the user already being managed by an existing BES.

What freakinvibe says makes sense but if you talk hard with VF they will do you a deal. We get such a good deal that it makes no sense for us to swap SIMs while travelling between US and UK. But if they won't play ball, the SIM-swap works a treat (make sure the US SIMs are provisioned for BES).
