I can't be the only one in this position... I use a single BlackBerry, a 9700 provisioned on at&t. I've previously had Cellular One, Sprint, VoiceStream, Verizon, and T-Mobile; however this isn't a discussion on which carrier and why. They each served their purpose at the time.

What all of the carriers currently share is the ability to use BIS + BES functionality on a single device. We all love this functionality, and it allows you to carry a single device for both personal and business use. Maybe I'm an anomaly here, but I think not ... here's my scenario:
  • I want to have my BIS + BES email (which I can do)
  • I want to have my personal and work calendar (which I'm either too lazy to figure out or just cant be done through my current method ... but I doubt this is the case)
  • I want to have my personal and work contacts (see above)

I use Outlook 2010 connecting to Exchange 2007 for both my personal email and my work email. My BIS integration is through OWA, and BES ... well ... is BES.

What do you do to get all that info there? I'd sure love to use Desktop Manager to bring in my personal info, but that isn't supported with Outlook 2010 ... luckily my contacts don't change often and I got a good sync in prior to upgrading.

Thoughts? I know there are some BIS wizards that can help me out

    I don't think you are alone, but from an admin perspective, I am not sure I want to support this. This pops up from time to time in my environment. I don't meant to hijack your post here, so I will leave it simple. The basic issue is what happens with the mix of personal and business when the business part breaks down and the two parties seperate under less than amicable terms? Or under terms where the field dictates clients and profitable business?

    I'm also curious to see if any BIZ wizards have a way to make managing the two simple. Thanks!

    Oddly enough I think most organizations allow BIS + BES. As far as managing the two, you set clear policies that state "if you're on the BES, we effectively own your device"
