BES Express for BB10
We currently run BES Express on our server and only have 4 phones connected to it (2 9330's and 2 9650's). I'm interested in upgrading our phones to BB10 devices, but what will I need on the server side? Will BES Express still work or will we have to pay for full blown BES?

You will need to upgraded to full BES10 and buy CAL's. BES10 should be free and the CAL's will run you about $70 per phone. So assuming your BES-X server has the horsepower to run BES10, you'll just need to pay $280 for licenses to migrate.
Would those licenses be a one time fee?
Does Active Sync work with public contacts? I tried setting it up with the Playbook, but it only pulled in personal contacts and destroyed the battery life on both the Playbook and my bridged phone, so I deleted the account and just use the bridge.

Yes it is my understanding that is a one time fee. Looks like they changed the pricing. You can find it here: https://enterprise.ecomm.webapps.bla...800000001.html
Quantity Price per CAL
1 - 4 $99.00
5 - 9 $85.80
10 - 49 $69.90
50 - 99 $65.98
100 - 499 $59.99
500 - 999 $55.00
1000 + $50.00
These licenses can be transferred from phone to phone, right? Say I get a new phone, buy the license for and then upgrade to another phone a few years down the road, would I need another license or can I transfer the license from the old phone?

If an existing user gets a new phone, the BES admin just issues an order for a new Enterprise Activation. When the user starts the Activation on the phone, everything that got backed up to BES will get sucked over to the new phone.

- whats that ?
I was about to reserve my bb10, but then I remembered I was on my company's BES. Which means when I got my BB10 phone, I wont be able to receive my company's emails ? I dont see my company spending more money on the upgrade to BES10 servers...very sad day for me indeed
