Oops.. title should have read 'Remote' activation....
Not terribly well versed on Blackberry's, Im sure Im not the first to run into this issue but cant seem to find a fix in forums or google (probably using the wrong keywords)
Were trying to get a new blackberry 8800 up and running. The device is fully operational, except for email (Note: We are using redirector, do NOT have BES setup)
The problem is, the owner of the blackberry (current Treo user) left on a business trip with Blackberry in hand before setting it up planning to to so when he returned on Monday. Somewhere en route to the airport, the Treo died and we are now (desperately) trying to get his email to his blackberry using redirector
*side note - As a 'temporary fix' he is able to access webmail through the browser but, as he receives ~100+ actionable & time sensitive emails a day this isnt the most efficient thing to do until Monday.
I have installed the redirector software and everything seems good to go except for the PIN. I was able to retrieve the PIN number from the device but cant figure out how to configure the blackberry desktop to the device PIN without tethering it to the PC. Is there any way to do this? or, are there any 3rd party software hacks that will allow overwriting the PIN?
Any thoughts/suggestions would be greatly appreciated!!
