Default Re: 9900 firmware upgrade without BES activation

Dubdub is correct. I sometimes question whether some IT departments can support the device even BEFORE the device is updated. However, that being said, I believe you can do this. If you simply upgrade it will activate automatically. However, if you make a backup then wipe the device, then do the upgrade I think it will skip the automatic BES activation. Then when you're ready you can get an activation password from your IT department.

Some IT departments don't care (like mine) but others do care so be careful. Good luck!
