    If you have installed BESX and can not get your blackberries to connect OTA then it is a problem with the BESX not finding the server name. You must edit the registries for BESX to point to the server name. Please see this post. As soon as I did this I activated 5 blackberries on my server OTA all on BIS accounts. No issues after this.

    See this website.

    If the registry key for you is not there, then add it. That is what i had to do.

    Hope this helps anyone having issues.

    fftaz336...you are my new hero!

    I've been banging my head against the wall for days trying to get my 8310 on a BIS plan to activate. Every attempt at a wired activation resulted in utter failure. I added the 001e6602 entry to the registry, restarted dispatcher, and success.

    So, for the record, you can absolutely OTA a BB w/BIS only.

    Thank You!!!

    That's the only problem I had. I activated 5 blackberries all of which are on BIS accounts through Verizon. I did read on bbleaks.com though that Verizon is going to make you upgrade to a 44.99 plan but right now I have all 5 activated and running off of my BESX and exchange 2007 server.

    Wired activation still doesn't want to work, but OTA is fine...as long as the icon is there.

    Yup I saw Verizon is going to force you on 44.99 anyway...so food for thought.

    Are there any rumblings that AT&T will do the same? Once one of them raises prices on something, the others have to be close behind.
