Hi there i am currently on T-mobile and have BES installed for our 23 mobiles, i want to change to Orange due to superior value on the tariff.
Can i opt for blackberrys again without any new software needing to be installed.

Everything should stay the same, only thing you'll have to do, is once you get the new bb's from Orange, is reactivate them.

BES doesn't care about the carrier.
As long as you have a BlackBerry Device with an active Enterprise BlackBerry Data Plan, BES will be happy.

New BB's will need to be activated. If you unlock the TMO BB's and put Orange SIM's in them (assuming that they're tied to appropriate BB data plans) you're good to go without activation or anything.
