I have installed BESX 22.214.171.124 on SBS2003.
3 Vodafone 9000's on BIS.
For the sake of it I tried the wireless Activation because it was still an option on the frist device.
It worked first time straight through as though it was on BES.
Which of course it is not supposed to be able to - but it did. ( wireless on BIS is not supposed to work ).
2nd device did the same and once again it worked fine. Once again this phone is on BIS.
But .. then I noticed a Java problem on the handset itself which the user had complained about.
I decided it would be best just to wipe and start again. So i did that.
When the device rebooted it got a Service book from Vodafone/Blackberry . But now the option for Enterprise Activation has gone. Which is "allegedly" what it it supposed to be like. So that you are forced to connect it up to a PC and activate that way.
So ok fine. Only 3 phones so if Blackberry/providers want to be "small minded" about activating handsets then so be it. Although it is another nail in the coffin for Blackberry amongst small businesses in my opinion.
Here is the real problem... can I get the remaining 2 handsets to activate? no I can't!!
I can associate user device in the webconsole. It says device is activated. So when I look at users the PIN is linked to user. But there is no wireless communications???
The last time contact made is emtpy so it indicates no communications via wireless.
BESX does not activate via email as far as I can see. There is no wizard to run on the hadnsets. The activation from the Webconsole with the device attached is all that should be required as far as I can see.
The fact the one phone - the first one - is working would seem to indicate that the basic setup is working on the BESX. It is just that the USB activation method is not working???
