I own my BB 8130 on Verizon. I used it with my companies BES server. I'm no longer with the company though they still have my pin in their system since I'm still getting mail from my old company email.

I have my personal email coming to the device by setting up my account at https://bis.na.blackberry.com/html/ and email is working fine. I want to sync my home desktop (Outlook 2007) with my BB. I don't need really real time calendar, address book, etc updates but I can't figure out how to push from the device to the desktop as a 1-way sync let alone a 2-way sync.

The most important thing for me is to have my contacts, my notepad items and any recurring dates I have set in the calendar on the device. I did a BB backup, just in case, but I would like to get things synced to Outlook.

What are the steps I'm missing? I've only used BES on all the BB's I've had so go easy on me if it's an obvious BIS thing.

Thanks,
David

Have the BES Admin remove your device from the BES and push a blank IT policy to the device. Then change your BES data plan to a BIS plan from your carrier.

Thanks for the response. Will that wipe data from my device or just remove the policy allowing me to sync locally? Is there any specific way I should present this to the BES admin at my old company so he does only what I need?

It will not wipe your data, just remove the restrictions the IT Policy placed on your device.

Best way to present it is with a nice bottle of wine. :smile:
