The wireless activation process activates BlackBerry® devices that are associated with a BlackBerry® Enterprise Server over the wireless network. Neither you nor the BlackBerry device users are required to connect the BlackBerry devices to a computer in your organization's network to complete the activation process.
You can use wireless activation to activate a large number of BlackBerry devices over the wireless network. When BlackBerry device users want to activate new or replacement BlackBerry devices that are associated with the BlackBerry Enterprise Server over the wireless network, they must notify you or access the provisioning server console. You or the BlackBerry device user can create activation passwords.
The BlackBerry® Enterprise Solution can begin the wireless activation process automatically or when BlackBerry device users open the activation application on their BlackBerry devices and type their activation passwords and email addresses. When the activation process completes, the BlackBerry device users are activated and can send email messages from and receive email messages on their BlackBerry devices.
If users purchase BlackBerry devices, you must make sure that the BlackBerry devices can be associated with the BlackBerry Enterprise Server and not the BlackBerry® Internet Service. You must create user accounts and activate BlackBerry devices so that you can associate the BlackBerry devices with a BlackBerry Enterprise Server.
