We recently launched an application for enterprise users that’s free to download that allows wireless activation for personal devices on BlackBerry® Internet Service plans to connect to BlackBerry® Enterprise Server Express and MDaemon® Messaging Server, BlackBerry® Edition.
In a few simple steps, users can activate their personal BlackBerry® smartphones over their employer’s wireless network, giving the IT administrator a simple way to support employee-owned smartphones. And since smartphones can be activated without having to connect them to a computer, it’s easier than ever for personal use devices to be securely connected to corporate mail, calendar, contacts and more.
To activate, you will need to:
Step 1: Enter the BlackBerry App World™ storefront from your BlackBerry smartphone and download the “Enterprise Activation” application. (Did we mention it can be downloaded for free?)
Step 2: Once it’s completed downloading, open the application.
Step 3: Enter your email address and password (this will be provided by your company’s IT department).
Step 4: Hit Activate and you will begin getting your work data within minutes!
Note: For this wireless enterprise activation app to work, you’ll need to be running BlackBerry® Device Software version 5.0 or higher, and be on a full BlackBerry Internet Service plan from your carrier, a compatible version of either BlackBerry Enterprise Server Express or MDaemon Messaging Server, BlackBerry Edition, and a supported BlackBerry smartphone.
We’re excited about what this means for businesses of any size – we’ve seen firsthand how powerful people within a business can be when they’re connected. Download the app today and let us know what you think!
