Default Non-Blackberry devices and BES

Please Login to Remove!

Ultimatly what we want is to have a Blackberry (or blackberry like device) that can work globaly.

So my question is, can the samsung i830 work w/ the BES?

We are using Verizon and it does not seem that Verizon has a Blackberry that can work Globaly.

Any help would be great, our Engineers have been driving me NUTS with this.

I find it very hard to believe that Verizon doesn't have a BlackBerry that can be used gloablly. In that case I would think the issue is Verizon and not BlackBerry.

We have many 7290's / 7100s / 8700s with Cingular that our employees use all the time when they travel to other countries. We've never had a problem.

The Verizon BlackBerries are CDMA, they will never work outside of NA. Find a carrier that has a GSM network.

Default International devices

Yeah your out of luck with Verizon. They actually have a program where you can rent a vodaphone phone / blackberry.

We have use pretty much every vendor on the planet and have good luck with cingular and t - mobile when roaming. Overseas most users choose Orange.
