Does Dev Alpha support to test push service?

Hi There,


From the documentation, to test the push service, BIS/BES needs to be enabled. How ever, for Dev Alpha, I don't think any of them are enabled. Is it possible to still develop and test push service on the Dev phones?

It should be possible. At Jam Americas in one of the sessions they demonstrated it with, I believe, the same build we had at the time.

I know little about it (beyond what I got in that session) but isn't there a test mode of some sort. You're not relying solely on the old BBOS documentation for this, are you? (Or is that all there is?)
