I run my own exchange server and recently found out about the free single user bes, bese. I called my carrier (cellular one) and asked if setting this up would hinder my email through them. They said it would not but because of special "libraries" I would have to get from rim that I would have to upgrade my package from the 30$ unlimited personal to the 50$ unlimited business. My question is, what are these libraries and if I did set up a server would they be able to determine that I am using a bes and in turn charge me more.

"libraries" is a word I haven't heard used to describe the BES service books. Most carriers charge more for a BES plan. Some, like Verizon have one large fee ($45) for a BB plan and that allows you to use BES. most, like t-mobile offer two plans. One "consumer" plan ($20) and one "business" plan ($30) (all carriers have different fees). The BES plan just provisions the account so that you can use the BES service books - which are needed to have a BB on a BES.

Are the service books installed when I upgrade my os, as I have already upgraded it from my stock carrier os. Or is this something that won't help. Am I literally going to need to call rim for the service books and then call cellular one and let them know, or is there a work around?

Not sure what these referenced "libraries" are. You need to install MAPI components (Exchange System Manager) ... and then BES (after following the installation instructions). Are you going to install this on the Exchange Server or on its own system?

Its not whether or not they know if you're using BES, but rather your device just simply won't function. Certain service books are required on your HH and your carrier needs to allow your device to communicate properly for a BES instead of the BIS plan.

... after the plan change has been applied to your SIM, the service books will be pushed to your device. You can do a Register Now on the Host Routing Table option to make sure your device is properly registered on the network.

After you upgrade the plan (and the CSR does what they're supposed to do) , if you wait 5 minutes or so and then do a soft reset on the device you should be able to activate on a BES.

When you have Cellular One upgrade your account to the BES type or business type or whatever they call it, you will be able to add your BB to the BES - that is what pushes the service books to the device - upgrading your account, just enables you to do this. There is no need to upgrade the OS (although, its always best to be running the latest software) Is that more clear?
