Most devices won't need configuring as they don't know or care about the name of the server - only the fact that the mailbox has moved.

As long as the FQDN being used is the same and the cert includes the same FQDN then you shouldn't have to reconfigure a single device - they will just notice the mailbox has moved and update themselves.

No - but I have done dozens of migrations and none of them involved me changing anything on the mobile phones.

Outlook auto-updates when the server changes and mobiles do exactly the same.

If you look at the settings used on an iPhone for example, you have the email address, internal domain name, username, password and FQDN - nothing in that involves the internal server name, which is what will change when you migrate from one version of Exchange to another, so the mobile will simply notice the mailbox has changed and auto-update itself and continue to sync with the new mailbox location.
