Default BB's from different providers

Please Login to Remove!

This may be a silly question -- is there an issue with connecting different BB's from different providers (cingular/Nextel/Verizon) to a single BES?

Not at all. I have at least one of each on mine.

Nextel 7520 | BES 4.0 | HS810 Headset

Nope. As long as it's a Blackberry, and is configured for Blackberry data service by the provider, there should be no issues with connecting it to any BES.

Basically, as long as the provider has enabled Blackberry data service for the device, all communication goes through RIM's servers, which are pretty much carrier-independent.
