Gr8 to see that my next phone also supports Blackberry Connect. I am using it on my Wizard for some months and id rather not live without it.
Basically BBC has similar functionality as WM Push-email. BBC is of most use when your company has chosen for Blackberry instead of MS Exchange push technology.
Im wondering what the advantages of BBC 4 are as compared to the old version 2 (afaik there is no BBC version 3)

I'd be interested in hearing if people have an opinion of a BB server vs. Goodlink on this device. My company has both. Thanks

BB Connect vs GoodLink on Kaiser

I'd be interested in hearing if people have an opinion of a BB server vs. Goodlink on this device. My company has both. Thanks

I am using GoodLink on my kaiser and it is HORRIBLE!! For the past few ROMs, GoodLink has all but crippled my device when i am composing or replying-to a message. It is real jerky when typing and sometimes the device briefly locks up.

I have been told that Version 5 of GoodLink works better on WM6 & this device but I can't get my hands on it because it has not been certified in our production environment. (The lab guys use Exchange Push and i am trying to get my mailbox moved there.)

I am about to pull down BB Connect and give it a go until I can get on the Exchange Push servers. The drawback to BB Connect is that only Mail & Calendar are sync'd wirelessly. Notes, Contacts, Tasks have to be sync'd manually though the BB Desktop Mgr.

im waititng for my kaiser. I have been a longtime user of Goodlink on Palm treos- i think Goodlink is significantly better than any other mail app out there. I contacted Good regarding support for WM6 and Kaiser. they said that Good 5 supports WM6 but the kaiser is not listed as a supported device (yet?).

After my experiences of Good on a WM Treo750 (disasterous) i will stick with the WM mail / contacts apps for now.

Q for the person who put good on his / her kaiser: did contacts searching etc still work properly?

BB4 syncs contacts tasks 7 notes

Hello I would be interesyed in hearing if the BB connect version from for the tilt works on the HTC branded kaiser.

I have headr that with blackberry connect 4 you can now sync email,calendar,contacts, and tasks wirelessly AND use the MDS service even for the pocket explorer, google maps, etc.

Since I couldn't get bbc to work on my universal, if this works on the kaiser I will give it a go... I certainly would drop my 8800 blackberry for the kaiser.

thanks

I have now installed Good on the Kaiser and it worked perfectly. Exactly like on the Hermes. We are running v4.9.3.21_EN

BB 4 advantages

One of the nices things about BB 4 is that now you can connect to the internet through the MDS service, without having to disconnect from the blackberry connection to go to your ISP connection. It also supports wireless activation as well as better security policies among other things.

Ha one of the lucky kaiser owners actually tested this? I would like to know if this will also work on the HTC branded Kaiser or just on the AT&T Tilt.

thanks!!

Can someone educate me on the difference between Blackberry Enterprise Service and Activesync? Why would one choose the BES over Activesync. I believe they both are push email services with syncing of calendar, contacts, and notes as well. What are the benefits or are they exactly the same except for personal preferences?

I have just installed it on the HTC TyTN II. I am using FIDO in Canada which uses BB Connect and it works very well.

Thanks,

my company uses Good and a BB server. I got BBC to install on the Tytn II but I switched back to Good within a few days. BBC on a Pocket PC is not great. It slows the device down terribly. Also Good synched much faster. The attachment handling is bad and very limiting. I think Good 5.0 due out this month should be even better. Just my 2 cents.

Hello I've installed the BB Connect software and got a pin, I also get connection to the network and a IP Address, but whenever I try to activate i get errors, if I do it via USB I get a success message but my BBC destop says PIN unknown, the I tried to do a wireless activation ang got a an error saying that I should contact my administrator.

Can this have something to do with the Enterprise server? supposedly my company doesn't support BBC devices, is there a way they can know this is not a BB?

I'm in MExico using Telcel carrier.

Thanks!!

Works for me too

Tytn 2 (from orange uk - on orange uk) running bbconnect 4.0.84 against my works bes

used the desktop config tool once installed (unconnected to pc - see below) and all fine

*note
If you install bbconnect when attached to your pc it hangs and doesn't install properly so you have to remove / reinstall

This sounds like the problem I had. It's related to the policies on your company's BES. I found the solution in the RIM knowledgebase:
http://www.blackberry.com/btsc/sear...Public&dialogID=31123659&stateId=0 0 31125133

Unfortunately, it requires action by a BES admin. I hope you can sweet talk an admin into doing it.
