Lightbulb Identifying handheld versions...

Please Login to Remove!

We sucsessfully just upgraded to BES 4, and now need to get our handhelds onto the 4.0 firmware. Unfortunately, I'm not 100% on which users have which models. I know we mostly have 7100t's. There are quite a few 7230's around. And I know there are a few straggler 5810's out there. Other than the few 7100 and 7230 units on 4.0, I can't tell what model BB they have. Is there anyway to tell via PIN? Or maybe an app I can run on the BES server that querries the handsets?

no and no. BES 4.0 has it built into the Handheld Manager, but unfortunately that requires OS 4.0 and a successful Enterpise Activation. generally, an email would suffice (atleast thats how i got the info from our BES 3.6 users)..
In the beginning the Universe was created. This has made a lot of people very angry and is widely regarded as a bad move.

Generally speaking, if we are talking GPRS devices, if the PIN is less than 2002xxx than the device is likely an 8MB 6710 or a 5810, both of which won't run 4.0.
