How to Activate Blackberry using BESX desktop manager

In the below example I am activating a Blackberry handset which is plugged into a PC via USB cable. The BESX server is version 5.0.2


  • You can run this from any PC on the domain.
  • You must connect the Blackberry via USB
  • I would recommend adding the BESX server address into your trusted sites.
  • You must also allow the Blackberry ActiveX control to run.


Open Internet Explorer and Connecto the the Blackberry Administration Service web interface:

https://<Your BESX server IP>:3443/webconsole/appMain.html

Login and selected manage devices – assign device as shown below.

On the next screen enter the username you want to associate, click search and then associate as shown below.

This should then activate the device
