BlackB​erry® Business Cloud Services + Lync + Blackberry 10 devices

Hello everyone,

from my research it appears that BlackBerry® Business Cloud Services doesn't support Lync integration.. Is that correct?


Also appears that blackberry 10 devices only work with ActiveSync. Is that correct?

Hello AvanadeMike,

Welcome to the BlackBerry Support Community Forums.

Thank you for your question regarding BBCS and Lync.


That is correct Lync is not support with BBCS. You can however install a local BES version that is meant for Office 365 so you can leverage your internal Lync server. 


As for BlackBerry 10 devices that is correct that we use ActiveSync and not MAPI like our previous devices.


BlackBerry Enterprise Server for Microsoft Office 365

Let me know if you have any other questions.
