My client is being asked by mobile supplier to switch from current BES-tariff to BIS-tariff with all handsets running from the existing BESexpress server.

it's been suggested that using the blackberry app "Enterprise Activation" from Blackberry App World, a wireless activation is achievable.

the specific query is if the uk-based client is overseas say in Hong Kong or India and a handset re-activation or activation of a new replacement handset is required, can this be done? bearing in mind he's not in the home country (UK)?

Thanks
Jay

Please also note, you cannot activate while making/receiving a phone call on the same BB device. So if you need to talk your user through manual enterprise activation, you will need to call them on another number/mobile.

Hi Jay,

One additional point to note: If the BlackBerry handsets are already activated on the BES Express and the network is simply changing the tariff from BES to BIS then the handsets won't require re-activation. The service will continue uninterrupted. It's only new connections on the account that will require activation.

Hope this helps,

Mike
