    I have a BES10 running BB10 devices. I want to add some Privs now and need CALs to manage them with the BES.

    Where can I buy them ? Here are so many options, I don't know what the correct one is.

    Can you help me ?

    Thanks !

    what licensing scheme have you signed up on your 10? You should upgrade to 12.... and it should be free upgrade for perpetual licenses...

    I upgraded old BES5/7 CALs during the free switch-to-BES10 phase. They are perpetual BES10 CALs now.

    Now switching to BES12 would be more expensive than just buying some new Android/iOS CALs, correct?

    I believe you should be able to upgrade again. Have you got an account manager?

    It's seemed to be a limited offer to upgrade for free.

    I talked to a BlackBerry representative. There are no BES10 CALs anymore. BES12 CALs are backwards compatible though. There are anual server based or monthly SIM card based licensing models available. Pretty cool I think.

    I will run both BES10 and BES12 parallel and buy some SIM card based licenses.

    Thank you all for your input.

    Even if you managed to upgraded you would had to pay for tsupport for any future updates with Perpetual. They've so far provided provisions for any legacy perpetual but you've gotta sign up for tsupport - Which isn't a bad thing depending on your size, we've grown enough over the years and combined with that and making a case for it we finally made the switch about a year ago... it's been fantastic having a direct line of support with them-we use to have to go through our carrier which was interesting at the very least.
