Using Wi-Fi for Blackberry services (BES)

Hi All

We are running BES 4.1.7 MR2.

I understand that users can actually use Wi-Fi to access BES services. So, say they were at an airport, they could connect to the Wi-Fi hotspot and use that to send/recv email and so forth. I guess this would be useful if there was a poor 3G/GPRS signal, but there was Wi-Fi around.

What I don't understand is what I need to do on my Blackberry (Bold 9000) to configure this? I've searched the net but can't find much, can someone advise?

Assuming this feature has not been disabled by BES Policy if you are configured for one.

Pretty much all you need to do is enable wifi, Then the next issue becomes if the wi-fi you are using will allow a connection out on 4101 iirc out to the BlackBerry Infrastructure. If that is possible it simply just bypasses the Carrier network.
