To disable Activesync for ALL users, please use the following in the Exchange Management Shell:

get-Mailbox | set-CASMailbox -ActiveSyncEnabled:$False

To then enable it on a mailbox by mailbox basis, use the following command:

Set-CASMailbox -Identity user@domain.com -ActiveSyncEnabled:$true

Do those commands work in both Standard and Enterprise, including 2010?

So if I run the first command, then the second within a few seconds, will the iPhone/Droid user need to reconnect/reactive there phone?  Or should it be pretty seemless?
Also, does disabling it for everyone first effect any of the pre-configured Password or Sync settings?

If you disable Activesync globally for all mailboxes (1st command), then existing users will not be able to use Activesync until their account is enabled again.

Once it is enabled again (2nd command), they won't need to re-connect or re-authenticate etc.  It is just like turning on / off a light switch.  You are allowing or denying access via Activesync - not forcing a re-configuration.

There won't be any problems with existing users if you disable then re-enable Activesync for them.  They probably won't even notice.

You can also copy/paste the command into a text file and then configure the users you want to allow, then copy paste the entire list into the EMC and batch enable the users you want e.g.,

Set-CASMailbox -Identity userA@domain.com -ActiveSyncEnabled:$true
Set-CASMailbox -Identity userB@domain.com -ActiveSyncEnabled:$true
Set-CASMailbox -Identity userC@domain.com -ActiveSyncEnabled:$true
Set-CASMailbox -Identity userD@domain.com -ActiveSyncEnabled:$true
Set-CASMailbox -Identity userE@domain.com -ActiveSyncEnabled:$true
Set-CASMailbox -Identity userF@domain.com -ActiveSyncEnabled:$true
Set-CASMailbox -Identity userG@domain.com -ActiveSyncEnabled:$true
