Blackberry Curve 9360

My company just recently singed a contract with AT&T.  Nearly all the employees were provided with Blackberry Curve 9360's.  We use an Exchange Server (remote desktop) and Microsoft Outlook.  Is there a way to sync the Curve 9360 with an Exchange Server (remote desktop) and Microsoft Outlook?

Re: Blackberry Curve 9360

Hi and Welcome to the Community!

 

Well, it depends...you knew that was coming, I hope!!

 

IF your company also has BlackBerry Enterprise Server/Solution (BES), then the BBs can fully integrate with Exchange for OTA sync of much information between the BBs and Exchange. If they do not have BES, and are hesitant because of the cost, then they should investigate BES-Express...which is FREE!! Note that, with full BES, the BBs must have a BES-level data account from the mobile service provider...with BES-X, only a BIS level data account is required.

 

If your company cannot have BES, then further IF they present the email accounts to the "raw" Internet (e.g., no VPN required) in some fashion (e.g., Outlook Web Access, POP, IMAP, etc.), then using BlackBerry Internet Service, the BBs can manage email.

 

See these KBs for further reference:

  • KB03652 Comparing BlackBerry Internet Service and BlackBerry Enterprise Server features
  • KB05133 Email reconciliation features for the BlackBerry Internet Service

If none of the above exist (e.g., there is no Internet facing email service), then the only integration with the BB can be via the Desktop Software, and no OTA functions whatsoever can exist.

 

Good luck!
