Default Verizon / BES

Please Login to Remove!

Folks,
Thanks in advance for reading this.

I am currently running BES with service being provided by Verizon (Verizon set this up for us). I will be the first user to try and add a Cingular/AT&T Wireless Blackberry Device to the network.

Can someone please help me figure out how to do this?

Currently running BES, using Verizon for service. Want to add Cingular/AT&T Device to BES and have it funtcion just as the Verizon devices do.

Many thanks.

BES isn't provided by a specific wireless carrier.... so there's no way your BES is being "provided by Verizon". Not quite sure what you mean by that.

Adding a device to BES is the same process for any BlackBerry on any wireless carrier.
Just follow the user guide for your BES, and you should be fine.
There's nothing specific about adding users from various wireless carriers to a BES.

If you're familiar with adding Verizon BlackBerry devices... then just do the same thing for Cingular/AT&T users.

I'm wondering if he was resold the BES by VZ (A year or two ago, my VZW acct rep was trying to get me to buy it from them.)

That being said, a BES is carrier independant.

At present, I know that I've got users on my BES from at least 6-7 different carriers (long story - don't ask ). There are probably a few others that I'm forgetting to list.

Verizon
ATT/Cingular
Tmobile
Sprint
Nextel
Vodafone
Bharti/Airtel

The moral of the story is, just go ahead and do an enterprise activation on the device. If you run into a problem, the most likely cause is the carrier preventing access because they sell a 'personal' service and an 'enterprise' service. I think this is more prevalent with overseas carriers, but a couple of providers on this side of the pond may do it as well. I'm just shocked that nickle & dime you to death VZW doesn't have such a structure in place....

It's exactly the same as activating your VZW BB's.

You guys Kick A$$. Many thanks. I am not our Blackberry Admin. I am the Linux Sys Admin and was doing this because our Blackberry Admin said it couldnt be done. I knew it could be, but needed the confirmation from guys that knew what they were doing.

I really appreciate all your feedback and assistance.
