Default Who needs professional support when you have the internet...?

Please Login to Remove!

My company just purchased the BlackBerry Technical Support Services, and I happen to think it might be a waste of money. I understand that for some incapable co-workers they need the comfort of a voice to tell them step-by-step how to fix their BlackBerry. For me, I'll pass on waiting 4 hours to have someone talk to me. I'd rather just google my problem or go to a forum, since somewhere someone has had the same issue. I do like the idea of the support as a backup, but I personally never see myself ever using it. Do you guys use your companies blackberry support system, or does your company even have one?

We have it.

I have used it a number of times when the BES stopped working right. Never had to wait more than 5 minute for a human.

When my BES goes down, I'm not going to rely on an off-line conversation on a forum.

That, and the BES version upgrades make it worthwhile.

RIM T-Support has proven to be an invaluable resource on several occasions.
I wouldn't even think of not having it.

That said... I have no idea what eAccess Solutions is. Are they some third-party BlackBerry support provider?

I agree with Penguin and CanuckBB. I have RIM T-Support and when it comes to getting BES related help quickly, they're right there. Never have to wait long (I think a big part of that is being on GroupWise ). I have used them a number of times as well.

As mentioned the upgrades are a nice reason to have T-Support as well.

I've had T Support and I think it's great, mainly because of the new the training/certification improvements a free test voucher and a discount on the open sessions. Definitely worth it.

Plus I occasionally get some message that makes me curious enough to call T Support and ask them "hey what's this".

Our company has it and it is great for BES stuff (if you get the right support person, that is). I rarely call for device related issues, but will check forums first for answers.

We mainly use it for BES related issue. The enterprise activation readiness checker is my favorite thing.

The Enterprise Activation Tool is great, good time saver. Makes it well worth it, when speaking with the wireless carrier.

Sirjohn, you have a lot better chance of getting help if you post in the correct section. Also you need to start a new thead and not post an unrelated question in someone else's thread. This is bad forum etiquette.

You should post your question in the 8300 Series section.
