How to connect BB Device and Simulator with the Enterprise Server?



I am developing ASP.NET application for blackberry device.

I have downloaded the following -


MDS simulator version 4.1.4

Smartphone Simulators 4.5.0


Can somebody please help me connecting the Simulator as well as device to the enterprise server?


Part I] Connecting Simulator to Enterprise Server

There are steps given in the Help of Simulator for connecting simulator with ES.

Here, I am not seeing the option "Turn Wireless Off" icon.

All I get in In "Home-> Manage Connections " is "Turn All Connections Off" option.

Please confirm if its the same as "Turn wireless off"


Part II] what are the steps to connect BB device with the Enterprise Server?

What is it you are actually trying to accomlish?


The Device Simulator automatically connects to the MDS simulator (when it's running) to provide you with the connectivity a bb application needs to network resources.


Connecting a device to a BES is accomplished through Enterprise Activation - something a BES admin will have to setup for you. He or She will need to put your messaging account on the BES then you'll have to complete an activation process to connect your device to the BES for email and PIM synchronization.

Re: How to connect BB Device and Simulator with the Enterprise Server?

Thanks for your reply.
The steps given in my question are mentioned in the help documentation of BlackBerry 8800 Simulator.
I udnerstand that there is a account activation process for BES.
But how will it get triggered if I have an account on the BES ( i am in the process of getting my account created).
In the mean time, I am looking into how the simulator can be connected to the real BES.
As of now, I can test my application using the MDS Simulator.

So, as given in the help, I am not able to find the option "Initial Plug-in: Verifying Applications " in the desktop manager.
Can you please tell me where this option is.
and how will the enterprise server activation process be carried out using the simulator?

(Thanks in advance for your help!)
