Configuring, Installing, and Registering NotifySync

What is the Domain and ActiveSync Server address? Where can I find that information?

This information defines the external address of your Mail/Exchange Server. It is how NotifySync knows where to connect devices for synchronization. You must enter this information when you purchase your license. When seat holders register, the email address they enter is used to obtain this information for the device. Your best source for this information is your Mail Server Administrator. To help you communicate to your administrator what information is required, refer to the guidelines in the Pre-Purchase Checklist.

I need to install and register NotifySync, but I’ve misplaced my license key and registration instructions. Who can I contact?

The purchaser can send an Email with the request to You should be prepared to answer the security question identified when you purchased the license. You can also obtain your License Key by going to the Returning Customer Portal and clicking the Resend My Purchase Confirmation button. An Email will be sent to the contact listed on your license. Registration instructions are located on the NotifySync Resource Portal.

I get the message, "Service Record Not Found," when I select Check for Updates. What is causing this?

NotifySync is attempting to use the default BIS network connection, but your device is not provisioned for BIS. You can change your network setting to TCP or Auto Detect using the Network Settings. This will allow you to complete your download and registration.
  • Open the NotifySync Network Settings and select TCP or Auto Detect as the Preferred Network.
If you wish to use the BIS network connection, contact your carrier and ask them to provision your account for the BlackBerry Internet Service. You can then switch your connection type back to BIS.

What is a License Key? What is a Licensed Seat?

When you purchase NotifySync you purchase a key (an alphanumeric code) which gives you license to use the product for one (1) year. The license can be renewed within 30 days of the anniversary of the original purchase date.

Associated with the License Key is the specific number of users who may install and use NotifySync on their BlackBerry device. Each user holds one seat. Example: If you purchase 10 seats you will be able to install NotifySync onto 10 BlackBerry devices. At any time within the license period, you can deactivate a seat and reassign it to another user.

Can I add more seats to my license?

Not exactly... To add more seats you would simply purchase another license. Since the additional license seats will have a different start/renewal date, they need to be under a license separate from your original purchase.

How long is my NotifySync license good for?

Your license is good for one (1) year and can be renewed within the 30 days prior to the anniversary of the original purchase date. Those listed on your license as the purchaser and the technical contact will receive reminder Emails during the renewal period.
