Default Activating BES/BIS

Please Login to Remove!

Some basic questions...but, couldn't seem to find the answer when searching the forum. I am receiving the 8700c today and my IT department said they will hook me up with the blackberry server tomorrow. I also like the idea of BIS for more personal use. Can I use both together? In what order should I activate, or does it matter? By reading the posts, I have noticed that BES has more functionality and I don't want to inadvertently lose that (BB Browser) by activating Cingular BIS before returning to work tomorrow.

Any advice is appreciated.

You can use both simultaneously. It just adds a new service book for BIS service email addersses and shouldn't change your BES.
