The process is a bit different if you are on BES 5.0 ro 5.0.1.
Here are the steps:
1.  Logon to BAS and search for the user who needs their password reset.
2.  Click on the user's PIN number.
3.  Scroll to the bottom part of the screen and click on "Specify new device password and lock device"
4.  Type the new password (twice) and keep in mind that numbers will equate to alpha characters on some device keyboards.  Example:  1234 would be wers on a Curve QWERTY keyboard.
5.  Click "Specify new device password and lock device"   This will send a message to the device that the administrator has changed the password.
