How to Remove a Device from BES

You would think this is a common task.  I have a blackberry that i will no longer be using on my BES server, I wish to give it to someone else, how do i remove this blackberry from BES.

 

The only command that comes close is "Delete all device data and disable device" .  What does disable device mean, do i end up with a paper weight instead of a blackberry?  WIll i be able to continue using the blackberry outside of the BES environment.

 

Thank you for any insight

 

Cheers

Delete all device data and disable device, is what you want to do. It will wipe it to factory state so you can give to another user.
