I have a bit of a problem here in the UK. I have been asked to do a bit of software testing on a Blackberry which is linked to BES. My current (spare) handset is a Blackberry 9720 7.1 Bundle 2910 (v220.127.116.113) Platform 18.104.22.168. It was provisioned for BIS but this has currently been removed as I wanted BES not BIS. The cloud based BES server is being supported via a company in India.
My sim provider (Orange) has now admitted they no longer support Blackberry in any meaningful way and cannot provide me a BES plan (I am currently on a PAYG plan) - Vodafone seems my only current option but they want a 12 month contract which I am reluctant to take out for a few weeks work.
a. is there any other provider out? that might be ok with BES/PAYG or is a contract the only way forward?
b. perhaps I should ask for a sim from the support team (India)?
c. Will any BES provisioned sim work for me (i.e. I might approach a company which has a BES server to borrow a sim for a few weeks - will it attach it to the Cloud BES server ok or would it be only provisioned for the company that lent it to me?
Thanks in advance for your assistance
