It's true. Wireless providers don't archive the browsing history of PDA's or broadband cards - not required to do so by the FCC and it would be a ton of data to archive.

If you are the BES admin you can archive that history via the BES...

You make it sound like the wireless companies are constantly being hacked into and monitored so corporations can gather data on employees. This is false. Wireless companies work very hard to remain secure and when they are breached, everyone finds out (because it makes for good news reports). Not to mention that what your talking about is illegal and no company is going to risk illegal activity just to gather data on some employee they could just fire and be done with.
