multiple enterprise activations per device

I've tried searching the board for this answer; I've tried verizon wireless tech support; and I've been on hold with RIM for an hour and ten minutes so far this morning so I thought I'd try my luck with the board. If this has been answered before, I apologize for the repeat; please paste the link to where its been answered. Thanks in advance!


1.) I have the Bberry curve 8330. I currently use 4 personal accounts with no problem. My day job has an enterprise activation available and I also own a liberty tax service franchise and they offer an enterprise activation. Can you setup multiple enterprise activations like you can setup multiple personal accounts?


2.) The IT guy at my day job warned me that the enterprise activation has the potential to wipe out my existing personal contacts and calendar. Is this true? Is it possible to do an enterprise activation for email only? I currently sync my personal calendar through a usb cable, the desktop software and outlook on my personal laptop - if there are events in my enterprise calendar, will they merge into my existing calendar or overwrite the entries? I also have the same question about my contacts...


Let me know if you need additional information to assist. Thank you in advance!!

Re: multiple enterprise activations per device

No it is not possible to have 1 device activated against 2 BES.


You could activate against one BES and then use your device (depending on carrier I think) to access other mailboxes via the BIS service.


You would need to get the mail administrator to open up POP or IMAP ports on the mail server.


I have not wiped a device before and then activated it against another user account and it has added all my Calendar items into the other users calendar. Right old mess!


1 device = 1 BES.

Re: multiple enterprise activations per device


Activating two BES accounts can be done by renaming the service books of the first account and then activating the second account.

Only one account can have PIM sync though. This will not work on lastest releases of BES IIRC.
