I was thinking about setting his new blackberry up on the NA BES and leaving the other as is, but I'm not sure if that would work or not, as I'm not very experienced dealing the BES.
As Background were running a Domino environment, the two BES servers and users mail are all located in different domino domains.
Would it not be simpler if he just swapped sims?
I am presuming this user wants to use the N. American BlackBerry to possibly save on roaming costs (sounds to me like the most logical reason).
If my presumption is correct, the simplest thing would be to have his BlackBerry unlocked, and when he is in N. America, simply put in the N. American GSM chip into the UK BlackBerry. All data services will work as normal (except that he wont pay roaming data charges). As regards to having his voice calls available on the UK sim when roaming, he can put his UK sim into any other GSM (American bands) handset and he can use it....
I think the above is the easiest solution,,,
