However up until BES 4.1.3, it was NOT possible for any SMS to be read by the company without physical access to the hardware - interestingly enough this enhanced logging changes that, and therefore you might want to consider informing users that you have this capability, before taking action on the content of such messages...
fyi: Call Log, PIN, and SMS auditing has been available since the initial 4.1 release.

This is the sole reason why we do not allow personal devices on our BES. The devices on our BES are considered company properties and anything on it is subject to company policy.
