Brand New BB, Bis or Bes provisioned out of box
If I was to purchase a brand new BB unlatched, is there a difference in them? ie do they come out of the box intended for use on BIS or BES and do I have to make sure that I get the correct one or does the provisioning come from the network?
Ready for both. It just needs a BIS or BES plan to suck up to.
This is where it gets confusing then as I bought an unlateched BB, put in my corporare sim card (O2-UK) which has BES enabled and did an enterprise activation. All worked fine.
Then I put in a different corporate sim card which has BIS activated and that also let me do an enterprise activation.
From all the information that I can find, it seems that there is different provisioning for BIS and BES so how come the devices I have work on BES regardless of whether they are setup for BIS or BES. I.E. on one of the sims I am paying the £10 BIS service but am able to use BES.
It's getting very confusing. Does this mean that if I put a consumer O2 sim card in (or another carrier for that matter) and add the BIS component that I can still use BES? All info would seem to suggest no but then what I have already done shouldn't have worked either should it?
Can anyone shed any light?
It's simply not possible to Enterprise Activate a Blackberry on a BES without a BES data plan.
The enterprise data plan allows both BIS and BES.
When I look at the data components added to each of the 2 numbers, one is BIS and one is BES, this is definitely the case so it does seem to work despite you saying that it's not possible.
You cannot successfully activate on a BES with only a BIS plan. It can't be done.
If you've activated on a BES, and the device is functioning properly on the BES, then you have a BES data plan.
I don't care what your bill says, or how much you're paying for it. It's a BES data plan.
ok i understand what you are saying. so it is obviously provisioned for both services? is this not what the networks normally do then?
