Activating a device
When a user activates a BlackBerry® device, the BlackBerry® Enterprise Solution authenticates the user and associates the device with a BlackBerry® Enterprise Server. During the activation process, the BlackBerry Enterprise Solution generates a device transport key.
A user can activate the device over the wireless network, when the device is connected to a computer that is running the BlackBerry® Desktop Software, or when the device is connected to a computer and the user is logged in to the BlackBerry® Web Desktop Manager or BlackBerry Administration Service. The user must have a valid email address so that the user can activate the device and register the device with the wireless network.
