Push telephone number with Bes-express 5

There is a way to push telephone contact number of all our blackberry device to the registered device on the BES.


We had Exchange 2010 but in the AD, we don't want to put the cellular number in the attribute so all the user can see the cellular number in our bussiness. We have about 60 managed blackberry device and when we add another one we would wish to push all the other cell number without entering manually. so is it possible?


Thanks for your help

Re: Push telephone number with Bes-express 5

This is what we do.

Not the best solution but it works very well offline outlook, BB smart phones and EAS

This also teaches the user how to better manage their contacts via categories.

Also we have outlook do lookups in the personell list (copy to favorites and enable address book) and not use GAL.
HR can manage it easier from a public folder too as an added bonus.

How users update:
go to contacts
View arrange by category
Delete catagory personnel list

Goto public folders/personnel list
highlight first user
press ctrl a
Drag drop into contact folder

is this easy enough?

All of our users do it this way for the last 3 years. Also since we are on outlook 2003 we even use Outlook PCS to sync them with one click.



also codetwo can sync a folder to any mailbox, works well for me with BES. We sync a public folder to all EAS mobile users now



you can also sync a public folder to devices too in BAS. I do this for most of my BlackBerry users now.
