Failed activation with BES, stuck at initializing

[ Edited ]

Ok heres the story, a users Blackberry Pearl died and he got a new one. Deleted the user from BES and tried adding again, tried activating, failed. 


The users status is stuck at initializing, his phone works (he can make and receive calls) but I am activating it so he can recieve his email. Email is going through Novell Groupwise. 


Below is the log file. Thanks for the help.

Re: Failed activation with BES, stuck at initializing

Have you made sure that the users device has the data plan registered?

-make sure he/she can get to the internet on the device.

-if he/she can, register the device by going to options > advanced options > host routing table > menu key and select register now.
