Upgrading from BES express to BES10

[ Edited ]

Hi, need some advice. I currently own a BB9900 and run BES Express. Im about to upgrade my phone to a Q10 and want to know the implications.


Is it true that it is free to upgrade the software?


I also want to introduce another Q10, so 2 phones, what are the costs (if any) and do I have to purchase CAL licenses, if so where from? Im in the UK.


Please advise


Thanks in advance

Re: Upgrading from BES express to BES10

You have to install BES 10 if you want more control than that of EAS policies


BES 10 is free and you only have to buy user CALs, I believe there is a deal for 19 USD each. a bargain for a MDM system,
