Personal Information Management (PIM) data includes tasks, memos, contacts, and calendar entries. PIM synchronisation ensures that the entries on your BlackBerry device and your desktop e-mail client are identical. When PIM synchronisation is enabled, these items are automatically synchronised wirelessly. PIM synchronisation can be turned on or off for each type of PIM data independently.
- On the Home screen, click the PIM category (Contacts shown here).

N.B. Enterprise Activation is only possible if your mobile telephony contract is BES-enabled. Most personal contracts are BIS-enabled (only supporting your operators messaging service). You will also require an activation password prior to activation; the password is issued once you have purchased the licence to use the Nexus BlackBerry service from the OUCS shop.

password field, enter the password you were given. Bear in
mind that passwords expire if not used for activation within 48 hours. Click and select
[activate]. You should allow at least an hour for activation although it may
well finish sooner. You do not have to wait for the BlackBerry to tell you activation is
completed and can use it in the meantime.
The Desktop Manager can be used to synchronise third party email and content into Nexus. Please bear in mind that any mis-configuration or data loss from systems not controlled by OUCS will be at your own risk.

You must, as a minimum, enable international roaming which will allow you to make calls. But, in addition, you will need to ensure that your data-plan is also available when roaming on another operators network.
Bear in mind that not all BlackBerry models will work in all countries. For the widest possible coverage you need a quad-band model which will support the different radio frequencies in use in North America, Europe and the Asia-Pacific region.
- 850 MHz: North and South America (except the North and West of Brazil)
- 900 MHz: Africa, Europe, Brazil, Australia, Asia (except Japan, South Korea)
- 1800 MHz: Africa, Europe, Brazil, Australia, Asia
- 1900 MHz: North and South America (except the South and East of Brazil)
GSM coverage is sufficient only to make calls. However to synchronise data, the mast to which you are connected must also support a data connection AND your roaming contract must permit it to establish a link.

- Has your
BlackBerry Activation Passwordexpired? It is valid for 48 hours from when it was first obtained, unless you have been told otherwise.
- Are you out of range? Your BlackBerry must have a data signal (GPRS, 3G or EDGE) with at least two bars to be confident of a stable connection during activation.
- Do your anti-spam settings block or forward email messages from Research In Motion?
Activation sends an email to your account (with a
.DATattachment) which contains configuration data. If this message cannot be delivered, activation will fail.
- Do you have any corrupted contact entries? There are reports that contacts which are not fully populated, with both a Firstname and Lastname entry, can cause problems synchronising the Address Book.
- Is the operating system on your BlackBerry sufficiently current? Version 4.0 or higher should be considered a minimum.
- Does your contract with your telecom firm include the correct data plan? You must have a BES enabled data plan (not the more-common BIS enabled plan) with your carrier.
Research In Motion provide documentation and a download link for the Desktop Manager software (available for both Windows and Macintosh clients).
The software manages the link between your BlackBerry and your computer, allowing you to backup, restore and upgrade your device. It also offers a facility to better manage what information is replicated from Nexus (specifying which inbox subfolders to synchronise for example) and to install or remove third party applications.
