Default Bes & Bis?

Please Login to Remove!

Hello everyone,

Is it possible to have one device for both BES and BIS? I'm currently on a BIS plan and all that is setup.. is it now possible at all to add this device to a BES? The Enterprise Activation isn't showing up anywhere...

What are you trying to achieve by being on both BES and BIS?

Yes, you can have BIS & BES. BES for the corporate exchange email, calendar, contacts, etc and BIS to poll your POP3 accounts.

You may not be seeing enterprise activation because of your carrier or the icon is hidden. Some carrier's have different plans for BIS & BES. So the basic plan will only allow BIS, another plan will offer both.
