How To Use Blackberry Management Center

Smaller businesses don't need an expensive server to manage their BlackBerry phones - the free Blackberry Management Center can do the job as Jim Martin demonstrates in our tutorial.

Many small businesses have to make do without an IT administrator, so if you're looking for an easy way to manage your company's phones, BlackBerry's new Management Center should appeal. It's a free online service that allows you to remotely manage - and protect - between three and 100 BlackBerry smartphones. Clearly, it isn't for larger businesses, but for small companies it offers a great way for a non-technical person to integrate both company and employee-owned handsets into a work environment.

Using Management Center, you can add email services, protect devices (including locking, wiping and making them ring to locate them) and send messages to users. In this walkthrough we'll guide you step-by-step through remotely adding an email account, backing up a handset, attempting to locate a missing device and erasing a lost or stolen device.
