Please Login to Remove!

His guys,

does anyone use the Handheld Manager for there 7230's and 7290's and what version?

we are ruinning BESD 4 and i know its all wireless now but a few people still want a manager.

we currently have Desktop Manager but i heard the Handheld Manager is good.

the version i found on blackberry.com was a old one and only supported old model BB's

thanks!

Desktop Manager is used for synchronizing to PSTs and loading programs via a wired synch. Handheld Manager is mostly useful in other countries where sometimes there are no unlimited data plans available, or they are too expensive, and users pay for what data they use. If a computer is running handheld manager and is connected to the same network as the BES, then all data is routed through the PC instead of over the air through the carrier's network. This is where the BlackBerry Router comes in and re-routes the traffic to the PC.

I learned this at the WES in Orlando. Quite honestly, I didn't even notice the handheld manager until they explained what it was used for. It does work, but just probably not frequently used in the US. If you plug in a BB into a PC running handheld manager, double click on it and you'll see the statistics.

Wireless Entrerprise Symposium, it was held in Orlando this year, back in April. A very informative event, sponsored mainly by RIM and major partners.

We sent about 5 people to it, basically everyone who is responsible for administering BB's and a BES in their particular geographic region.
