I know this has been asked and answered 8 months ago. I just wanted to see if anything changed?

It being that the iPhone is not a Blackberry, it will not "work" with Blackberry Enterprise Server.

However, if what you are trying to achieve is to download email to your iPhone from Exchange, this can be done - Exchange supports both POP3 and IMAP4, which means that the iPhone can be set up to download mail using either of those methods.  Is that what you are trying to achieve?

Do you know if there are any plans to allow the iphone to connect to the BES?
Like the Nokia.
No idea I'm afraid, though I would be doubtful myself (I can't find any details of this being worked on at all, not that this means it isn't).  Maybe there will be support when Apple release the next version of the phone, which is in the pipeline.

There will never be any official support for the iPhone & BlackBerry unless someone creates a 3rd party application.  I know apple don't want it and I RIM will never approve it.
I know that Apple has the new 2.0 update for the iPhone, which is suppose to solve the BES problem. Does anyone if this is the case?
cepollyAuthor Commented:
Yes in a way.

iPhone 2.0 eliminates need for BES.
Though you need to download and setup Activesync.
So I should not add devce to BES?

Still no BES support for iPhone.  The iPhone now supports Microsoft Push email.
There is software available for this, but due to EE rules, I'm not allowed to post the URL

Here's the URL for the Press Release in case anyone is interested
