Default Redirector to BES

Please Login to Remove!

I recently upgraded to a BB 7250. I am still in the 15 day trial with my provider, so I decided not to pursue addition to the corporate BES. Instead, I am running Redirector on my PC (which stays on anyway). I understand that Redirector only allows you to send/receive emails (no reconciliation). I also sync via USB cable with my Outlook calendar, contacts, tasks, etc.

I have decided to keep the device and am going to ask to be added to the corporate BES. What do I need to do to replace the Redirector with the BES? What do I have to do with my desktop PC and the handheld to transition to the BES and away from Redirector?

Also, what will happen with all my contacts, calendar entries, etc., when I do get on the BES? Should I wipe them clean before activating (if so.. how? sorry)

Thanks

You possibly may receive duplicates on calendar entries, etc. According to one member of the forum, in reply to a thread I had made, you should be able to simply complete a wireless enterprise activation (assuming they are on BES 4.0) and you'll be good to go. However, in my experience, I had to actually add the user to the BES, remove the user, then add the user back - clearing all information and stats throughout the entire process. This added them to the BES as a blanked user and let them activate as normal.

RIM also suggests uninstalling the Desktop Manager application and reinstalling it to point to the BES, although the same user mentioned above said the Startup entry was the only difference between the two installations.

For more information, search for 'redirector' and look for my thread.
