Mobile FAQ

Does the Blackberry 10 work with our Exchange servers?

Answer:The Blackberry 10 is capable of an Active Sync connection to the University’s Exchange mail server. This is the same type of connection that most other smart phones (iPhone, Android) use to connect to Exchange. UIT recommends using the Blackberry 10 Active Sync capabilities. Not only is this a more effective solution for UH (no need to support an extra server and license), it is more cost effective for you because you no longer need to pay extra charges to your cell phone provider for the special Blackberry enterprise connection.

If you want to retain the features and functions (including higher security capabilities between your device and the UH Exchange server), we recommend you do not upgrade to the Blackberry 10 Active Sync and continue to connect using the existing Blackberry Exchange connection service.
