Two Devices on BES
Hi all, I have an 8820 that's connected to my company's BES. I also have a Curve that's not in use but lately I have been wanting to use it. Can I switch between devices and run the Enterprise Activation whenever I feel like switching between 8820 and 8310?
Yes, there should be no problem with that if you are the BES manager or have a very understanding BES manager who feels like taking the time to complete this switch each time you feel like switching devices.
Well I'm not the manager. Are there things that need to be changed by the manager? I was hoping that I could just type me email and password in on the activation...

But, first things first - many companies have policies about using personal hardware at work - make sure what your company's policies are before you do this (not worth losing your job over).
Use the switch device wizard in DM to transfer all of your data over, then move your sim and media card from the 8820 to the curve. then plug the curve into your pc and when DM asks you if you want to switch to this device, say yes - this will kick off the Enterprise Activation.
Thanks Ridicule. I don't think using personal devices are a problem, the 8820 is mine. Maybe I'll call and see what's up before I go messing around with aynthing.
