Which is good, because you can have couple of Corona's before

There should be a link there called Auto Scheduler. It will also assist you in resolving conflicts with sessions you picked that overlap.

Getting close! Still no love for the Host hotel.

I was wondering if all those attending can list their hotel, PIN, Cell so we can coordinate. I'd be happy to put this all into excel for everyones reference.

PM me if interested.

A big fan of the Blowfish... not so much Hootie. But hey, music is music, right?

Nope. Not an AT&T customer. But then again, I was a Sprint/Nextel customer last year and they refused to invite me.

I got the invite for the AT&T party (supposed to get 2 passes). If my husband doesn't make it (and I do get both passes) I'll offer the other one up.

I would be a fun date.

Not an AT&T customer either.
Any ideas on how to get tickets?

We crashed the TMob party last year. Result: cold food, watery drinks, crowded bar, bad music.
Got rejected from the Sprint/Nextel party. Seems as though our reputation preceded us.
Attended the Verizon party and had a blast. Good food (lots of it); huge bar in the middle of the room; bundles of gadgets that they gave away.

Already inquired with my Sprint/Nextel rep about the WES activities. She was like, "ummm, yeah....well, Sprint will be there as a major sponsor. But I can't tell anything else even though you're a customer."

I know where I'm going this year. Who's with me?! SPARTACUS!!!

I'm in, Darth. Haven't heard what Verizon is doing this year. I'll see if I can shake anything loose and find out. We've left Nextel and TMob by the hundreds over the last year, I may not be high on their list (hey, you gotta go with who gives you coverage, right?).

We also ported hundreds of numbers from Sprint/Nextel in the past year as well. When they asked me why, I told them in very polite terms:
Customer Service: you suck
T-Support: you suck
Quality of hardware: you suck
Quality of service/reception: you suck
Sales responsiveness: you suck
Billing representation: you suck

I think ya'll get the idea.
I've been hitting up my Verizon rep for details too. He's working on it, but says he can't release the details... yet. Maybe next week.

My VZW rep put our names on a list or something, but I haven't heard anything back. Still awaiting TMO (he previously contacted me asking if I would be attending), so if anyone hears anything, please post (that way I can know to badger my rep).

Hey Guys,

As you can see I am new to the forum. I recently became a BES Admin just a few months ago. I am still very new. But I was able to successfully migrate our BES 2.2 server to a virtual 4.1.4 (and then the sp5 update) with the help of RIM's support.

Anyways, I will be attending WES2008. Hope to see you all there!

Usually no purchase necessary at all. These are customer appreciation parties.

Default Anyone bring laptop daily?

This will be my first WES and I was looking for word from any vetrans on laptops--do a lot of people bring them along each day or is it just another thing to lug around for the day (I'm staying at a non-WES hotel so I guess I can throw it in the rental car for the day)? do they have open wifi access in the conference center?

Any other tips? I will be the only person from my company there so I may have to look for some folks from here to hang out with (even though I am not as active as I should be here).

I brought mine last year and it stayed in the hotel room the entire time. I didn't want to lug it around. I'm even considering not bringing it this year.

Free Wi-Fi was provided by Meru Networks. Unfortunately, it didnt reach all the way up to my room. Only seemed to work in the conference area.
I didn't see too many folks with laptops.
