I've seen this before. You might need to update the device's routing table, profile, apply O/S updates and verify with the carrier that the phon's plan includes the enterprise data plan.

We just moved two clients from BB to iPhones. The switch was very easy compared to working with BB server. Although there are some tradeoffs, the iPhones have been accepted quite well by the employees of both clients.

Most of the activation problems I see are due to an error with provisioning at the mobile phone service provider. Activation is normally very relaible. I would speak to the mobile phone provider and ask them to check the device is provisioned correctly. Don't take the first line tech's word for it, most providers have Blackberry specialists. Ask them to send the service books again. In the mean time check that the device is up to date on the OS, but that shouldn't have any impact on the ability to activate it.

No idea why people have so many problems with the BES. I run dozens of the things for clients and they just behave themselves. Certainly a lot less hassle than ActiveSync with a lot more functionality.

Don't take the first line tech's word for it - Seems you have been through some issues earlier, i will double check with the plan and we have tried with Service book and other options

I do agree and have activated close to 1500 user for this client with this first one having this issue
