Hi,

Does anyone here use citynt.com MyBlueBerry MDS+ service? I am a Hong Kong user and use that with Hong Kong CSL. However, I can't connect to internet through their MDS. I am still solving this problem.

Could someone share their experience on the setting or comment on citynt.com?

Hi, my problem has been solved after several days of conversation.

My carrier told me that I must subscribe a "Enterprise Service" before I can do the BES activation. That service charge me around USD40/month.
Since I am a Hong Kong user, could anyone tell me is that "Enterprise Service" a must before we activation the BES on other place such as in US?

By the way, support from citynt.com is great! They used both email and MSN to answer my answers. They also used VNC to connect my pc and tried to solve my problem.

Thanks for sharing.

Yes, you need Enterprise connectivity, unfortunately. You'll have to sign up for that.

Many North American carriers include Enterprise connectivity at no extra charge, but your carrier requires an extra charge for it.

My company currently runs Outlook 2000. Its seems that all the services listed require Outlook 2003. Are there any services I can use if I am stuck with Outlook 2000?

hagen21,

All the services sign you up for a separate exchange server/host. Unless your work is planning on getting BES for there 2000 exchange you'll need to create a new e-mail address for a new exchange account, you can then forward all of your e-mails from your works 2000 server to your new 2003 exchange account, if you decide to get hosting.

Hope this makes sense, maybe some one can explain it better. As I am a Newb also.

At the risk of asking an issue that has been asked, but I missed in searching, is MDS available automatically with BES. I called a new advertiser on this forum, Link2 Exchange, and they were knowledgeable about the Exchange component but were not conversant regarding MDS, other than the person I spoke with said he used a Yahoo Chat program with no problem. I do not want to find myself unable to use MDS apps.
Thanks in advance

Question about the new BWC - I have heard that the claims are almost full BES features with the new BWC. I find this hard to believe. The key features of BES 4.0 are that you can synch wirelessly all your outlook data - contacts/calendar/notes/tasks. Anyone have any insight on how they are looking to structure the BWC to do this without exchange/notes/groupwise. Will people actaully store all their data on the website like yahoo accounts do? Of course this still does not offer the outlook integration.. Very curious on peoples take on this.

There appears to be some form of wireless addressbook synchronization already with BWC 4.0 at least on Rogers. I don't know how you export to your PC, but this competes against the Sidekick wireless addressbook sync.

However, it's not as automatic as BES 4.0 realtime wireless sync with Outlook...

I have had lots of support issues with T-Mobile and difficulties with other 3rd party BES providers. So I just want to say that I have had superior service from Link2Exchange. No, I have no incentive from them or any relationship but they have been extremely helpful to me. T-Mobile managed to screw things up on their end that required Link2Exchange to reset on their end and they did so without any grumbling. Just my 2 cents.... for anyone looking for a good BES provider.

Do any of these providers have BES/MDS only? I've got my own exchange and a review of their web offerings imply a pre-req of an exchange account with them which I don't really want/want to pay for since it makes the home exchange rather worthless. I'm the only bb user, not the only mail user.

Even MyBlueberry comes with Exchange. You can just ignore the Exchange mailbox, but you lose the wireless PIM synchronization benefits.

Thanks, I need all the opinions I can get.

I've seen your posts and others that made me nervous about these guys. I'm leaning toward either mailstreet or link2exchange. I'm a MAC/Linux person, and like the mailstreet web interface to their exchange server. Does link2exchange have anything like that.

The prices, after configuring it the way I want, seem to be about the same.

I travel some, I've read that a hosted BES/MDS can work when BWC can't in some out-of-US locations. Why is that? Is it the difference between gprs and GPRS?

Millie grazie,

i'm not sure I understand your question, but judging from it, do you know how much a Enterprise Server costs and the technical know how required?

Another provider that offer hosted services is http://www.itrezzo.com and http://www.sessionware.com

Default Very naive user needs hosted BES/MDS. What should I do?

I've been studying the FAQs, and am still not sure what to do. I may have
missed something obvious.

I've been completely frustrated by Cingular and have just about given up on wap.cingular as an apn. I need to ssh to my desktop rarely, but when I need it, I need it bad. Cingular has done little but waste a lot of my time:

Success with Cingular, TCP/IP, and wap.cingular

So, I have some questions about the FAQs. I'm not sure what has changed
since 4.0 and BWC became options.

1. If I sign up for BES/MDS, can I forget about wap.cingular for
things like

ssh, PocketDay weather/stocks, IM, ...

and get them to work with MDS?

2. Is there anything that I'll need an apn for at all? Can I cancel the
media net $5/month plan cingular is making me use for the apn?
Do any of you BES people care about apn? The FAQ says that MDS
is like TCP/IP. Is the set up the same? Do I do this in
options->tcp?

3. The FAQs talk about roaming. Is this a problem in urban areas in
Europe and Asia? International service is a big deal for me.

Have I missed something about BWC? I'll be in Frankfurt and
Stockholm in two weeks, and email needs to work for me.
If the cingular BWC won't work in major cities in Europe, please warn me.


4. I'm a MAC/Linux person, and use my windows partition as little as
possible. It seems some of the hosted services let me run outlook
via the web. Is that right? Which are the most MAC-friendly? I use
yahoo for my calendar now, so switching to a hosted outlook won't
hurt too much. All my contacts live on the 7100g, so having them on
the web where they're easy to edit wouldn't hurt either.

It seems that for $25/month from mailstreet, for example, I can get
BES/MDS + web outlook + spam filtering. That seems to be the best
option for me, and some of the FAQs recommend it for MACs.

5. I'll probably need good tech support (and I'm NOT getting it from
Cingular). Which of these guys has that?

6. The FAQ talks about improved browser speed. Will I get a new browser
with BES/MDS or will the speed of the BB browser simply improve?

7. Will I need to reinstall the desktop if I don't plan to sync the BB with the
laptop where my windows partition lives?

Thanks in advance.
