Talking free bes server!

Please Login to Remove!

Just so that everyone knows, if you go to --wwwdotblackberrydotcom/go/express--- they will give you a free bes server and one user license. All you have to do is enter you're pin.

you can also purchase 14 additional cals if needed, or an offical upgrade to make it a full blown bes

I only posted again about this because people were talking about some third party linux app to do the same thing, and I think most new blackberry users don't know That you can get BES for free, now my only question is, if I register my pin, I get 1 srp key, 1 srp auth id, and 1 cal. If i then register another blackberry, can I use that cal on my first BES express server?

I would venture to say no, RIM is pretty good about not letting those type of loop holes work.

Actually, you can ask anytime you want, after you use the search button.

Thanks for the advice. Let me repay the favor by saying, check out the rules. So you don't have to search for it, I'll bring it to you.

IMPORTANT

Forum Search & BlackBerry FAQ
It is encouraged use BlackBerryForums Search to attempt to find the answer before posting. Also check the BlackBerry FAQ as well.

However, if you witness other users post redundant questions, please do not complain to them to use the Search feature. (This is a moderator's job) Instead, skip to the next thread, and let other helpful users helpfully answer the questions in the original thread. We want to make new users feel welcome and overcome their "newbieness" more quickly. All of us have asked redundant questions as a new forum users, and went on to be helpful forum members, so let's be considerate to make new users feel welcome.

And in the BlackBerry FAQ - which you so dutifully noted in your post, there is a superb FAQ on the different methods of getting e-mail to your BB - including BIS and BES and what they do.

FAQ: What Are The Methods of Receiving Email On BlackBerry?

No reason to even have to use the search feature on that one; you could have just read the FAQs...

i think the poster's intention was simply one of stating that this is NOT a general user application and should not be treated as such. unfortunately with the nature of the availability of this application, there are a lot of people who have NO business even looking at it asking questions. and no offense to them, but its rather annoying to us that do this for a living to have questions asked by people who have no clue what a computer is much less that of an enterprise-level email solution. hope that makes sense.

bis is meant more for people with pop/imap accounts and is manageable by the end user online... cingular for example

www.cingular.com/blackberrystart will redirect you to the bis login screen so you can access your cingular bis acct



BES is more a corporate solution with many users.. think of BES as something that is managed by your IT admin and has the ability to bring down your calendar, tasks, email, address book from your computer on your company server to your blackberry...it really is a great solution if you have it available to you

It was a simple question not meant to turn into a big deal. I was just curious why so many people are willing to pay money for it. There is obviously something great about it that I wasn't aware of. I was aware of some of its uses but just wanted the full story, so I thought I would ask.

the bes is a lot faster, has the ability to monitor what your BB users can and cant do or you can make it so they can do or cant do on their BB. the ability to have wireless access to your calendar, address book, emails in real time...its real Tits if you have the opportunity to get on a bes

On the BlackBerry site...

corporate enterprises and government agencies that have the money to spend on solutions that are secure and allow for administration and auditing are generally going to shell out the dollars when necessary. that's just a fact of life, especially in the post-scandal world we live in with more and more government oversight of pretty much any and everything we do. the number one IT expense by companies in the last 2 years has been on security - prior to that, there were companies that cared, but for the most part it was not really all that important (especially for smaller companies).

If your provider is Cingular, getting a hosted BES account means you won't have to call Cingular every month to sort out the errors in your bill. This is really important if you use stuff like Pocket day, instant messaging, ssh, ... and/or travel internationally. If you use the Cingular APN, you will almost certainly get bills that you will have a hard time figuring out.

Is it worth $20/month? It is to me.
