BlackBerry 10 smartphones can connect to Hosted Exchange and Exchange Online/Office 365 plans directly using Microsoft Exchange ActiveSync without any third party app or client.  ActiveSync support is native and out-of-the-box for devices with BB 10 OS and above.  This allows you to sync your devices with BB 10 OS and above to our Hosted Exchange services without the BES service or plan.

Apps4Rent provides hosted BES 5 support to customers using older BlackBerry devices. If you want to connect to BES 10 using an older device, you can do that by buying a dedicated exchange plan with us. On top of that you will need a BlackBerry Enterprise Server, and a BES data plan as well.

Exchange Online/Office 365 plans used to support BlackBerry devices with OS 7.1 and below with the BBCS (BlackBerry Business Cloud Services) option, which has now been discontinued.

Here is a summary of our Exchange plans vis-à-vis BlackBerry devices or OS that you might be using:
