Leaked BlackBerry Desktop Software – No Keycode Needed


Some of the OSBB members got an email this morning letting them know that a new BlackBerry Desktop Software was available for download for PC users in the Beta Zone. The email is a bit late,  as the new Desktop Software has been available since the 18th, but we can all forgive RIM for that, right?

Hit the jump for more info and a download link.

The release notes let us know that this release fixes a whole host of issues, from errors restoring data to errors uninstalling Desktop Software in Vista. Quite naturally, it also brings some new problems. For a full overview, you can download the Release Notes And Known Issues List.

Unfortunately, RIM limits access to the installer in two ways. First, not everyone gets invited to the beta (and some people can’t even register for the Beta Zone). Second, RIM requires a keycode to access the installer.

The first of those two obsticles is easy to overcome; someone leaks the installer. The second issue would be trickier, or perhaps even impossible, except that RIM does a very silly thing in the packaging of the installer. I won’t go into details (because if RIM changes it these leaks won’t be possible), but what they do gives you access to a stock RIM Desktop Manager Installation package that doesn’t require a keycode.

Before you download, do take warning that this is a Beta product. It might not work for you (I myself have only tested it on Windows 7 x64) and, as a beta, it almost certainly will contain bugs.

That being said, for those of us who want to install BlackBerry Desktop Software without needing a keycode

How To Use BBM (BlackBerry Messanger)

BlackBerry® Messenger (BBM™) allows you to communicate quickly with your friends. And thanks to message indicators on BBM that let you know when your message has been sent, delivered and read by your friends, there are no worries about getting your message across!

Getting started on BlackBerry Messenger

First, find the BBM icon on the ‘all’ window of the home screen.

  • The first thing you will be asked for is a display name. This is the name that other people will see you as in their contact list.
  • You will then be asked to associate your BlackBerry Messenger account with your own contact in your address book. If you don’t already have one set up to choose from, you can create one easily.

You’re now ready to get started with BBM.

Invite Contact

BBM is a tool to help keep you connected with your inner circle, so it’s by invitation only. Here’s how to invite contacts into your BBM list:

    • To invite a contact click ‘invite contact’ under the contacts section on the main BBM screen
    • You can invite a contact to your BBM list in one of three ways:

* Inputting their PIN or Email account
* By text message
* By scanning their barcode

Note: you can find your own PIN barcode in your BBM contact profile. From the main BBM screen, you can press the ‘menu key’ and select ‘view my profile’ and choose to show your PIN Barcode.


Now that you’ve got contacts in your contact list, you can start communicating with them using BBM.

  • To start a conversation, simply click on a contact and compose your message. Pressing the return/enter key will send the message.
  • When the message is sent, you’ll see a checkmark appear next to your message. When that message is delivered to the recipient’s BlackBerry® smartphone, that check mark will appear with a ‘D’ next to it. And when the message is read on the other end the ‘D’ will be replaced with an ‘R’

To end a conversation, you can press the menu key and select ‘End chat’   

Chatting with multiple contacts

BBM also lets you chat with multiple people at once, just like a chat room.

  • Once you’ve started a chat with one person, you can add additional contacts by pressing the menu key and selecting ‘Invite others’. You are then presented with your BBM contact list to select additional participants.

Sharing Files

You can use BBM to share files with your BBM contacts quickly and easily.

  • While in a chat, click on the paperclip icon to bring up a menu which lets you select the file type you would like to share. Selecting a picture for example will take you to the album list in the Pictures application.
  • Once you have selected an image from an album, you are able to add a comment before sending. As soon as the recipient accepts the transfer on their end, the picture will be sent.

BlackBerry Groups

BlackBerry Groups lets you set up forums with other BlackBerry Messenger contacts, which allows you to share pictures, voice notes, calendars and task lists — kind of like a message board! The group even has its own icon that you can put on your home screen for easy access.

  • Selecting ‘create new group’ from the BlackBerry Groups section of the home screen brings you to a page where you can specify information about the group you want to create, like giving it a name, selecting an icon, and so on.
  • Once you’ve created the group, click the ‘Invite new member’ icon in the bottom left hand corner of the group’s main screen. You can then select an existing BlackBerry Messenger contact or add a new one.
  • As soon as that person accepts your group request, you’ll be able to interact with them within the group!

BlackBerry BIS Vs BES

I’m often asked about the difference between BES and BIS. They both serve the same ultimate purpose: to deliver email (and data) to your handheld in a secure and reliable manner. So what’s the difference?

What is BIS?
BIS stands for BlackBerry Internet Service. It gives your BlackBerry access to the Internet. It’s like an ISP, but for your smart-phone instead of your home computer.  Every time your BlackBerry gets an email, or accesses a webpage, it does so through BIS (unless you’re using BES)

BIS  Structure Diagram

What is BES?
BES stands for BlackBerry Enterprise Server. It gives your BlackBerry access to a corporate intranet. The intranet is the private, internal, network within a company. It’s kind of like a mini-internet that is cut off from the rest of the world. Many intranets allow you to communicate with the Internet as well, but with added layers of security.

BES  Structure Diagram

The Differences
Both BES and BIS allow your BlackBerry to get email, as well as retrieve webpages and use third-party applications (like WICKSoft Mobile Documents!). All traffic from your phone goes to the BES / BIS server, and then the BES / BIS server communicates with the world on your behalf.

The difference, ultimately, lies in where the server resides and the level of control and security you get.

In the case of BIS, your carrier operates the server. Everything from BIS to your handheld is encrypted, but that’s about the extent of the security features. The carrier can decide what applications run on your phone, and how applications communicate with the Internet.

For BES, your company operates the server, and usually has it sitting somewhere within the corporate network. The IT department controls all aspect of the BES server, and it’s likely sitting in a nice and secure location.

So really, what does this mean?
It’s all about privacy. In the case of BIS, everything operates on a public network.  Data from your phone to your carrier is encrypted, but ultimately your carrier is communicating with the Internet, which isn’t exactly the pinnacle of a secure environment. The odds of somebody intercepting your data, or worse, compromising the different systems you access, are much higher. I don’t want to scare anyone though: BIS is typically more secure than accessing the Internet from home using an ISP, and is WAY more secure than using WiFi or BlueTooth.

With BES, most of your data remains in a private, closed network.  Your BlackBerry has a secure link directly to the corporate environment, because the BES server is located in the office somewhere. The only way for someone to monitor or intercept your data would be for them to infiltrate your organization.

So think of it like this: In the BIS case, a guy with an envelope (your data / email) is running around New York City trying to deliver the package to you—hopefully you can trust him, and hopefully nobody thumps him over the head and takes the envelope.   For BES, the guy delivering the envelope is walking around inside a secure compound, among trusted people who have proper security clearance, and cameras are monitoring his every move as he travels the 50 feet from his desk to your desk.

Wait, there’s more!
I’ve been overly simplistic in my description of BES.  BES really does a whole lot more than just fetch email.  For one, it acts just like a VPN in the sense that in makes sure ALL data travelling between your BlackBerry and your office is encrypted.

Also, BES provides tools to publish applications, and define how those applications can interact with the phone and the network.

Imagine that you have 500 BlackBerrys in your organization, and you want to install an application (like WICKSoft Mobile Documents) on each of the phones.  BES will let you ‘push’ a copy of the application to each of the phones without ever having to physically touch a single device. You don’t have to worry about an end-user making a configuration mistake, or forgetting to install the application.  It’s all done automatically, and securely.

BES also lets you remotely wipe and lock a device.  This is very useful for those cases where people forget their BlackBerrys in the back of a taxi, or have them stolen.

Not all wireless carriers offer the same level of BIS service. Some of you are unlucky enough to be stuck with one that restricts third-party applications from accessing the Internet. This means that a lot of excellent third-party applications for the BlackBerry are simply unavailable.

With BES there are no inherent restrictions, because your company gets to decide all of these things.  Want GoogleTalk to work, but not Yahoo! Messenger? No problem: BES lets your company enable one, and cripple the other.

In conclusion
BIS provides a direct link between your phone and your wireless provider, but after that all traffic essentially goes out over the Internet.  Any and all security becomes the responsibility of the BlackBerry application in question, so there are no security guarantees.  That said, BIS does a good job at providing Internet and email support and, best of all– you don’t have to set anything up.

BES provides what is essentially a direct link between your phone and your office environment.  It’s very secure, flexible, and gives your company control over all aspects of the BlackBerry.  There is a certain ‘baseline’ security inherent in all data transactions, and your IT department can always disable your BlackBerry if it’s been compromised.

Smaller companies, or individuals, are well served by BIS—it provides you with almost everything you need.  Larger organizations, with their own internal mail systems and other infrastructure, should definitely be using BES.
