Default 3rd Party BB's Showing up

Please Login to Remove!

I have several users at my other offices that want to buy their own model BB. From other carriers etc. What do I have to do to add these folks to my BES 3.6 server should they ask to be added? Is it necessary for them to send me the device?

Yes, with 3.6 you will have to manually activate it from the server or workstation running BES manager.

But they do NOT have to send them to you.
They must install Desktop Manager and have a link (direct, VPN, doesn't matter) to the Exchange environment.
You must add their mailboxes to the BES
They install DM, and connect the BB. Generate an encryption key and that should be it.

Well that would be to have it redirected right? To get them enabled for true wireless they would have to set it up at the server or admin workstation eh? On 3.6 at least I thought.

Nope. That can all be done from a network connected desktop running DM.

bfrye,

More than a year ago, I was able to activate on BES 3.6 using Mailstreet just simply by connecting my Microsoft Outlook over the VPN to the BES-enhanced Exchange server...

I didn't need to mail my BlackBerry...

They just have to be able to connect to desktop manager and have it connect to the mail server. Same as regular addition of devices really, no difference.
