Having a hard time advising people where to find BB phones since we're upgrading to BES10.
SPRINT/VERIZON doesn't resell them. Only AT&T

While the BB10 devices are the most compatible, almost all BB's devices are supported (must keep older BES server running!), as well as iOS/Android (through BB app)
BB10 devices:
Z10      
Q10      
Q5      
Z30      
P'9982

The old BES server is going away 12/2016 (no control over that)
I was told BB devices with android OS not working on BES10/5.
Actually had devices not getting email because of that.

So, that leaves you with Android/iOS, and the BB10 list I provided.
If the BB devices with Android don't behave correctly, use them as plain Android devices (so install the BES10 client app)

But email and the Blackberry Enterprise Activation Services wont work with BB's that have Android OS. defeats the reason for having them. Apologies I should have included this with my question (BEAS).

Obviously, if you don't like using the BES10 Client app, then the list of BB10 devices I already posted is your only option.

so we can install the BES10 Client app to any mobile phone to add it to the BES10 and it will BEAS?

In the BES10 Client app, there's an activation procedure almost identical to a BB10 or older device.
Obviously, the whole Android device isn't instantly changing to an old fashioned BB device now, it WILL work differently than you'd expect a BB device to work.
