If you've been looking for a way to upgrade your IT infrastructure from an ancient BES 5 or other MDM system, you're in luck: BES10 EZ Pass is now available. The migration tool, announced late in February, is intended to make it easier to move from both the older BES5 mobile device management system as well as from competing MDM suits like Good, MobileIron, and AirWatch.

EZ Pass is a free tool, though of course BlackBerry's goal is to move you to the modern BES10 and its newer pricing structure. The two tiers for BES10, silver and gold, offer full device, app, and security management for BlackBerry 10 devices, while Gold expands support for the containerized Secure Work Space for iOS and Android.

In addition to a free upgrade to BES10, EZ Pass also includes a guaranteed upgrade to BES12 when it comes later in this year.

Lol, whenever the highway toll decides they want to upgrade to BB10 and BES10! Should be soon, as the word is spreading :)

I don't think they are overlapping service classes.

You could also come up with an enzyme-based pill that let's you pass gas more easily... call it EZ Pass. That would also be a distinct service class.

Well this time I can say that i'm FIRST... to have migrated ;-)

just received this mail : "Thank you for participating in EZ Pass..."

LMAO Too funny. Let me just say you weren't first and you looked even more foolish than normal.

Why do people even try? Ugh.

drmike is right. If you fail with you first attempt, own up to it like a man and don't palm it off using "the fun / joke" argument.

The is a right and a wrong way of "firsting", admitting failure is part of it. :-)

"No Q10?" -> "Buy from Chen... "

Please explain how one can use EZ PASS on a BES 5 installation to BES 10 if they cannot be on the same physical (or virtual) server installation until BES 12 comes out? Don't we have to wait for BES 12 before this will work?

Mine went perfectly well. BES 10 on a VM. It's based on your srp number. It was quick.
