Default use blackberry on alternative network

Please Login to Remove!

i have searched the forum but can't find whether this is possible or not.

my company uses BES and issues BBs on o2 UK. the devices (8700s) are unlocked and mine works on BIS with my Orange UK Sim (which has bb enabled). when i get my password for enterprise activation can i use it with my Orange sim in and get BIS on orange - or will the company BES only push mail to an o2 sim...?

hope that makes sense!!

The BES pushes to a pin and so it shouldn't matter what network or sim you are using. If you get a BB data connection it should work just fine.

A BES will not care what provider the bb uses at all, only that it is a bb and has a valid pin. In other words, it will work just fine.

DOH! Beat to the punch!
