With the release of BlackBerry v10.0 last week, the method for synchronising the new set of BlackBerry 10 devices with MDaemon has changed. A BlackBerry Enterprise Server (BES) is no longer required for synchronisation, and handsets now use the ActiveSync standard for personal data synchronisation.
The process of setting up an ActiveSync account on a BlackBerry 10 device is actually quite similar to the Android and iOS devices, requiring just the server details, email address and password in order to connect.
Today, with the help of a couple of willing volunteers who use the new Blackberry handsets, we’ve written a Knowledgebase article detailing the steps required to synchronise both Z10 and X10 devices, but we would appreciate a little assistance in testing our instructions.
If you use either and wouldn’t mind running through the brief setup steps we’d appreciate knowing how you got on.
Note – in case it comes in handy, apparently to take a screenshot on a Blackberry 10 device you simply press both the volume up and down button at the same time and you should hear a camera shutter sound. Who knew!?
If you can help, please get in touch by dropping us a quick email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thanks to Graham Potter and Greg Goldsworthy for their assistance to this point!
