Default Switching consumer handset to enterprise

Please Login to Remove!

Newbie question, tried searching but couldnt find a definitive answer.

I have just been given an 8100 handset a mate used with t-mobile direct to consumer (UK).

I want to use this handset on our enterprise set-up at work so the handset needs to be re configured to work.

Searching on the subject it seems I should be able to go to configuration and select the enterprise option and go from there. Trouble is that there is no option to start this enterprise setup.

My tech support guy isnt being much help and is relying on me for the answer !

Any thoughts or ideas on what I can do to get it working?

Many thanks

The way my firm's BES is configured, all I have to do to activate a device on the BES is to download the desktop software on a PC, connect the device, and run the desktop software. When first run, it asks whether I want BES or BIS, and, if I select BES, it asks you all the questions needed to configure (Domino or Exchange server, server name, etc.) Then the device will automatically start the enterprise activation process.

I hope this is helpful.

I was also wondering about this. I already run an Exchange server and found out about BESE (Blackberry Enterprise Server Express) that allows you to have 1 CAL for free, which is all I need. I called Cellular One to ask if it would conflict with my email through them (xxx@cellularone.blackberry.com) or my other email addresses I have setup to push to my phone. They said that I need the enterprise "libraries" and that I need to call RIM to get these "libraries" (I'm guessing service books) and that if I do this then I'll have to upgrade from the unlimited data consumer plan that is $30 to the unlimited data business plan which is $50. I am still trying to figure out if a simple OS upgrade installs these "libraries" to my phone, and if it does if I will be able to just stay with my $30 plan and get away with it.

Just to be clear I want to use the handset my friend gave me and use it exclusively on my company's enterprise set up.

The handset wont be used for personal use. My friend took his contract with him and I have a crappy handset from T-Mobile I want to switch the SIM into this 8100.

Thanks
