Default UK BES Options - Very frustrated.

Please Login to Remove!

Hello all,

Firstly, thank you in advance for any help/advice. My current situation is as follows:

I bought a blackberry 8700g and an O2 voice/data package from Carphonewarehouse based on the fact they told me it was BES capable.

My employer has a BES service and don't mind me being on it as long as I get my own handset/network plan. I activated the device on BES and everything worked fine for 2 hours or so and then everything stopped working.

Turns out O2 will prevent any "consumer" network SIMS from being on BES.

I called Carphonewarehouse, and they confirmed that the plan I was on was not BES capable, but they don't sell any that are. Additionally, no refunds possible even though they lied, and I'm only 2 days into the contract.

Now, O2 will allow BES as long as the SIM is on a corporate plan. My questions are:

1. Is there any way to get my current SIM/Plan/Device to work with BES?
2. If not, then will CarphoneWarehouse be able to exchange my network plan to a "corporate" account/SIM?
3. If not, then will O2 sell me a corporate SIM/account based on the fact that I don't have a business, etc. I just want to use my employer's BES.
4. Are there any other providers that do not distinguish BES connectivity based on corporate/consumer network plans? I.e., Vodaphone, Orange, T-Mobile, 3, etc?

Can anybody please help me?

Thanks!
