Blackberry (BES) Retirement

Due to the diminished number of Blackberry devices on campus, the Blackberry Enterprise Service will be retired. As part of this process, UIT will stop adding users to the service after June 30th, 2012. As of June 30, 2013 the service will be completely retired.

To prepare for this, we recommend that you switch to using the IMAP protocol with your Blackberry, which allows you to access your E-mail, but no access to Contacts or Calendars.  Should you wish to continue accessing your Contacts and Calendar, please consider purchasing an Apple iPhone, or a Google Android based phone.  Blackberry plans to support access to the Tufts Calendar and Contacts in a future release of their phone software although it is currently known which phones will be able to use this software. The best way to ensure you have access to your email, calendar, and contacts is to purchase an iPhone or Android based phone.
