BES Express 5.01 " run on any Internet-enabled data plan"
 
I've installed allot of BES Enterprise and BES Express/Pro. servers and the new feature confuses me on BES Express 5.0.1.:
BlackBerry Enterprise Server Express has no additional cost for the software or client access licenses (CALs), and can run on any Internet-enabled data plan

-This indicates the Blackberry Enterprise Data Plan is not needed. I have done extensive research on BB forums and on RIM's website but no dice! Nothing provides direction on how this works. I have done 4 installs of BES Express 5.0.1 and not been able to figure out how it works.

Anyone?

Slightly misleading.
With BESx 5, you still need a BlackBerry Data Plan, however you no longer need the Enterprise BlackBerry Plan. A personal BIS plan will suffice for wireless message deliver and PIM sync, but not wireless EA.

If the device is provisioned with a BIS data plan, it can only be EA'd via USB cable.

Thanks you, Have you tried this? After EA via USB does all the BES functions work?

Yes, it works fine.

Ok, I just activated over the wireless and I don't think we have an Enterprise Account!? Maybe we do now!

Some devices, even if provisioned with only a BIS plan, are shipped with the PROVISIONING service book to allow Wireless Enterprise Activation.
