How to send BBM (Pin?) messages to users from BES

I am a software developer.

I have a client who wants to integrate sending BBM (pin?) messages into our application.

He would like to support older and newer devices if possible.

He thinks we can do this with the free version of BES.


I would appreciate any ideas how to proceed.

Re: How to send BBM (Pin?) messages to users from BES



You can have your application BBM enabled, but that only allows for communication from device to device.  That can be applicaiton to person, application to application, or person to application traffic.  The application(s) need to reside on devices, not a backend server component.


The ability to send PIN messages through the BES in an automated fashion isn't supported.  We used to have a manual PIN blast mechanism in BES 4 and 5, but that isn't available in BES 10 at this time.
