    End of Sale: The End of Sale date is the last date which a new tenant can be created in the service. New users can still be added to existing tenants.

    Yes, that's correct, as of August 26, 2016 - assuming you are using BlackBerry Business Cloud Services to do so.

    Cloud services was legacy BlackBerrys to connect to office 365 exchange server because they never had active sync.

    Your passport is fine because bb10 only uses active sync for exchange

    This affects legacy BlackBerry OS device users (7.1 or prior). I'm of the belief that BES12 Cloud *does not* support legacy BlackBerry OS devices either. Correct? In this case is anyone aware of a hosted provider of BES or BESX only? I am wondering if it might be possible to use such a hosted solution in tandem with Office 365 to continue offering sync services to legacy BlackBerry OS devices.

    Your correct BES12 cloud does not support legacy devices. If you do have a legacy device it is going to be hard to find a hosted server that has old BES software on it since the old BES software has hit EOL status and BES10 was never really adopted by any hosting companies. Your cheapest and easiest option would be to upgrade your phone if you are still rocking a legacy BB
