Remotely Assign A Replacement Device

Hi. We have Blackberry Manager and one of our user's blackberry 'died' and a replacement bought.  The user is abroad currently and therefore I need to remotely assign the device if possible so that the user is again linked to our Exchange.  What steps do I need to follow to do this.  I have very little Blackberry Manager experience so Abc would be appreciated!!
