Personally, I think you are taking a big risk and I would not do it, just for the sake of a couple hundred bucks and a new BB.
Sorry buddy, my last message was not clear.
The BES and the BES team is overseas.
I am responsible for all cell handsets in the EU region therefore any new handset for an EU employee is delivered directly to me. If that device is a BB, it is up to me to forward the information of the device (IMEI, PIN etc) I want registered with the BES to the team overseas.
The BB is never in the hands of the BES team nor is it preconfigured with a BES account nor does the operator inform the BES team that a new BB is being delivered to me. All that is my job.
There is NO way of them knowing I am using an old BB device for exchange and the brand new 9800 for my own personal use. They just need to know that I am a BES user and I am receiving emails to A device (irrespective of what that is)
I am 99% sure there is no risk in this.
What I am interested in is, is encryption. If we go back to original scenario - using BIS+BES together on ONE device.
If the device is encrypted, can the BES admin see the information being sent back and forth via BES for something like BBM?
