    If he wants to run Enterprise Server, yes. He can run the free version called Blackberry Professional. Each Blackberry is eligable for one free license (hxxp://na.blackberry.com/eng/services/professional/#tab_tab_pricing). He can purchase additional licenses as well.

    I know, I have it running at my house. This is of course assuming he has an Exchange or Domino server running already.

    BlackBerry Professional Software is based on best-in-class BlackBerry software—but with simplified features that are relevant to your business. You enjoy the same advantages in productivity, management and security, in a package that can be installed on your existing email server and is priced right for you.

    ...

    Bundles
    BlackBerry Professional Software is available in two convenient bundles to get you started. Prices below are subject to change and are the manufacturer’s suggested retail price. Your service provider may sell for less.

    BlackBerry Professional Software – 5 users $499 USD (MSRP)
    BlackBerry Professional Software – 10 users $849 USD (MSRP)
    ...
    Excellent, within the reach of much smaller enterprise.

    This isn't true. BES is available for at no charge as a single user license and one copy can be downloaded for each BBerry owned.

    MS Exchange server...well you can pay for it or find it at no cost by alternative means.

    The one unknown (for me) is whether you can do this using a BIS plan from your service provider or whether you need to have a more expensive BES data plan.

    I'd like to know if you pulled this off as I am looking to create the exact same setup as described by muu.

    Old thread but I just saw your post -- the answer to your question is no. You need to have the BES data plan.

    I have an Exchange/BES environment running 3 phones at hme and they all have the BES plan.
