Not sure of your setup completely, but RIM is having trouble with BES and Exchange 2010.  The fix is to pop out the battery of the BB and wait 15 seconds then pop back in.  At least that's how it's working here with some BBs on the new BES server (5) using exchange 2010.

Hi, this might sound a stupid question here , but as you can not rule anything out I have to ask, have you run enterprise activation on the handheld?

Hi,

As above, I assume that you have created an activation password, communicated this to the end users and they have entered this into the Enterprise Activation screen on the device?

Normally there are several things that will prevent an OTA Activation (assuming this is what you are doing):

1. If the Enterprise Service Policy is enabled, has the PIN been added to the 'allowed' devices list?
2. Make sure the SIMs are provisioned with the correct service plan
3. Make sure that any mail 'sweepers' are not blocking emails from blackberry.net or blackberry.com - these have an attachment which can be intercepted.
4. Make sure there are no mailbox rules which are moving the message to a sub-folder, putting it in junk etc.

Hope this helps,


Robmobility.
