Alternative to BES push for non-BES devices

Currently we have server notification using the BES push technology but more and more devices we are encountering are not BES activated.  We are trying to resist doing polling so is there an alternative for non BES devices?

 

Thanks,

Philippe

There is BIS Push, read more about it here:

I believe that BIS Push is only available to BlackBerry Alliance members (of certain standing), and may have some device OS restrictions as well. 

 

Other than that:

a) SMS Listener

b) email Listener 

c) and there is polling.....
