    Not that I know of at this time, BES can only handle a single user account.

    yup. Only one per account. You'll have to remove the old BB and add the new pin for the 8700.

    Thanks for your info. So if I just activate another BB,then the old one will be deleted.

    Yes, if you overwrite the user config with the new devices PIN the old PIN will be removed from the server.

    If you are wanting to keep a copy of the messages on both devices then you could create a dummy user on your BES. Set up main account to auto cc the mail to the dummy user by creating a server side rule to copy the mail to the dummy account.

    Its a dirty method, but it works.

    Not that I recommend it but we have users who used two Blackberries, one on our 2.2 BES domain and one on the 4.0 domain. Again, I don't recommend it to anyone

    you definitely cannot do this on GW BES - one device per user email account. We create dummy accounts for testing purposes.
