Activating a device that is associated with the BlackBerry Internet Service over the wireless network

A BlackBerry device user can use the Enterprise Activation application for BlackBerry smartphones (available for free from BlackBerry App World) to activate a device that is associated with the BlackBerry Internet Service with the BlackBerry Enterprise Server Express over the wireless network. The device does not need to be connected to a computer to complete the activation process.

To activate the device, the BlackBerry Enterprise Server Express administrator must add a user account from the organization's user directory to the BlackBerry Enterprise Server Express and create an activation password for the user account. The user installs and runs the application on their device and types their work email address and the activation password. After the device is activated on the BlackBerry Enterprise Server Express, the user can access work email messages, calendar data, and organizer data.

For more information about activating devices, see the BlackBerry Enterprise Server Express Administration Guide.
