Activating your smartphone to access work resources

You can activate your BlackBerry smartphone to associate it with your organization's environment and access your work email account, work calendar, and other work applications on your smartphone. Use the following methods to activate your smartphone:

If you are activating a new smartphone, you can connect your smartphone to your computer and open the BlackBerry Web Desktop Manager. The activation process begins automatically.

If you are activating a new smartphone, you can activate your smartphone over the wireless network. Your system administrator can provide you with an activation password, or you can create one yourself.

If your smartphone is already activated and you need to move it from your current BlackBerry services host, for example if you need to move your smartphone from Microsoft Online Services, to the BlackBerry Business Cloud Services, you need to use the onboarding wizard to switch hosts.

If your smartphone is already activated with BlackBerry Business Cloud Services, and you want to switch the BlackBerry services and data from your current smartphone to a new smartphone, you can use the switch devices feature.

Open the BlackBerry Web Desktop Manager

1.On the Microsoft Office 365 home page, in the Resources section, click Setting up email on mobile phones.

2.In the Hosted BlackBerry Services section, click BlackBerry Web Desktop Manager. Microsoft Office 365 redirects you to the BlackBerry Web Desktop Manager home page.

After you finish: The first time that you open the BlackBerry Web Desktop Manager, you might have to accept the client authentication certificate and install the files that you need to use the BlackBerry Web Desktop Manager. To install these files, you must have local administrator permissions for your computer.

You can use the onboarding process to activate your BlackBerry smartphone when you move your smartphone from the Hosted BlackBerry for Microsoft Exchange Online to the BlackBerry Business Cloud Services. The onboarding process makes sure that your smartphone data and settings are transferred as well. When you complete the onboarding process, you can access your work email account, calendar, and applications.

You can use one of two methods to onboard your smartphone:

If your smartphone is running BlackBerry Device Software 5.0 or later, you can use the onboarding wizard.

If your smartphone is running a version of BlackBerry Device Software that is earlier than 5.0, you can manually onboard your smartphone.

Prerequisites: Using the onboarding wizard

Verify that your BlackBerry smartphone is running BlackBerry Device Software 5.0 or later.

Verify that you have administrator rights to your computer.

On your smartphone, turn off encryption on the built-in media storage and the media card. If you do not turn off encryption on the media card, you can not access the data after the onboarding process completes. For information about turning off encryption, see the user guide for your smartphone.

If you have a large amount of data stored in the built-in media storage, move data from the built-in media storage to the media card. The onboarding process does not restore the built-in media storage on your smartphone if the amount of data stored is more than 1 GB.

Use the onboarding wizard to activate your smartphone

The onboarding wizard automatically backs up the data on your BlackBerry smartphone, completes the steps necessary to activate your smartphone, and restores the data to your smartphone after the activation process completes. The onboarding process removes personal email accounts from your smartphone. After the onboarding process completes, you need to set up your personal email accounts on your smartphone.

Before you begin: Disconnect your smartphone from your computer. Do not connect your smartphone to your computer until you are instructed to do so in this procedure.

1.Open the BlackBerry Web Desktop Manager.

2.Click Run the onboarding wizard.

3.Read the conditions and notes and click Continue onboarding.

4.Connect your smartphone to your computer. The onboarding wizard begins automatically, do not disconnect your smartphone from the computer until the onboarding process completes.

5.When the onboarding process completes, disconnect your smartphone from your computer.

After you disconnect your smartphone, the BlackBerry Business Cloud Services synchronizes your work data over the wireless network. This process takes several minutes.
