    Default My work told me they were upgrading to BB10 today

    I work for a large grocery wholesaler in western Canada, roughly 2000 employees. Right now we use bb6 phones (or worse, some of us have crappy motorolla flip phones) and my boss told me today we are upgrading to BB10 in march!

    Congrats PlayBookster! BES-10 so you can do the Balance-ing thing?
    It was recently pointed out to me that SugarSync was still in my signature, and no longer available for free. It was a nice (free) ride, SugarSync, but I'm seeing Box and Dropbox now, via BB10 integration.

    I know we're upgrading to BES10, and the team I'm on are all supposed to get new BB10 handsets. Apparently we don't want to support Balance yet though

    who cares about contracts

    If the entity is large enough it is easy to stomp your feet, whine, cry, b!tch, moan, whatever is needed to get what you want lol.



    already have BB10 and BES10 in a couple of spots for testing here

    We were all given 8GB iphone4's not 4s's this oct. Think were sticking with them for at least 5 years. They don't upgrade often even though they are the worlds largest cable company. Lol

    OP, does your company currently use ActiveSync for Androids and IOS? Do any of your co-workers use these phones to access email?

    Reason I ask is because if they do then I have to ask more knowledgeable forum members why would we need BES10 from a user's perspective? I'm sure it has its advantages for administrators, but for us users does it really matter? I've read some comments about tests done on receiving email with an AS connected device and a BB device and the dfference was negligible.

    No we dont. Those who have the old flip phones are just for text and calling. No one here is using iphones or androids for work.

    Are you implying QBNKELT is a plus-size woman? Tsk. Tsk. She'll set her ferrets loose upon you. I've heard ferrets can be carnivorous.

    I know you are asking from users' perspective, but from mine......we are NOT BYOD for mobile.....probably never will.....

    We are toying with the idea of BYOD for people with Mac....but keeps getting shot down....
