Activate a BlackBerry Device for BES
Full-time staff and faculty at TTU and TTUS are eligible to use the BlackBerry Enterprise Server (BES) with their BlackBerry handheld device. Contact IT Help Central to set up your device to work with the BES. Then, you will receive a six character password from the TTU BES Administrator through email. This password, known as the Wireless Enterprise Activation Password, must be used within 48 hours to activate the device.
STEP 1: On your BlackBerry, go to Settings.
STEP 2: Choose Options.
STEP 3: Choose Advanced Options.
STEP 4: Choose Enterprise Activation.
STEP 5: Enter the following:
- Email: your TechMail address
- Password: the BES Wireless Enterprise Activation Password you received through email (not your eRaider password)
STEP 6: Press on your device's track ball to bring up the menu, and then select Activate.
STEP 7: Wait for the activation to complete.
NOTE: A device with a new BES account will take from 5 to 20 minutes to activate. An upgraded device using an established BES account could take longer due to amount of data on the BES.
STEP 8: You will receive a message that activation is complete. Your TechMail email, calendar items, and contacts should now wirelessly sync with the device.
