Get a Blackberry CAL
UTD’s Blackberry Exchange Server (BES) enables you to check your UTD Exchange email from your phone.
Aside from a Blackberry phone with service activated (from a carrier such as T-Mobile or AT&T), you will need two other things to receive UTD Email:
- A Blackberry Enterprise Data Service Plan. This is normally purchased when the phone is initially purchased; check with your carrier.
- A CAL or Client Access License. This allows the phone to access the UTD Blackberry Enterprise Server (BES Server).
- To purchase a CAL contact Blackberry at the phone number below and request a Client Access License. A credit card number will be required.
- Within 24 hours Blackberry will send you an email with your CAL information.
Once you have the CAL information, call the UTD Help Desk at extension 2911, and request a Blackberry setup to receive email. Be sure to tell the Helpdesk you have received a CAL from Blackberry.
They will then assign you a ticket number. Please forward the email you received from Blackberry, along with that ticket number to firstname.lastname@example.org. Your account will be setup on the server, and you can then make an appointment to setup your phone to receive email. Important: do not discard the email from Blackberry at anytime!
To purchase a CAL, please call Blackberry Sales at 1-800-327-9085 or1-877-255-2377 and press option 4 for sales.
For more information please contact the Help Desk at ext. 2911.
