Activate Multiple Blackberry Devices on BES 5

Can anyone tell me if there is any way to do a mass activation of Blackberry devices on BES 5.0?  Our company just purchased several hundred devices (Blackberry Bold 9700), and doing each activation one by one is taking an incredible amount of time.  Does a method exist for activating the Blackberry devices OTA in mass?  For example, sending a PIN message to activate the handheld?

Thanks!

I ran into this myself. You have to do a search in the control panel. It will return all users and then you are able to make multiple selections to activate them. Will post the exact location in a minute.

Speciifically, Users, Create a User. Choose search from the create user window. You can then select whoever you want and choose continue. Then on the next page you'll see at the bottom an option to activate them.

You can set activation passwords for multiple devices via the Resource Kit, but each device still has to be handled and activated. This is the sure way that the correct device is assigned to the correct account.
