Please Login to Remove!

i have to trouble shoot an issue with 3rd party app on my blackberry.
currently, all the devices use MDS. Where on the device can i tell the blackberry to use my carriers (Cingular) service and not the BES's service?

This is assuming the issue is not being caused by IT Policy restrictions from the BES.

To remove your handheld's connectivity to the BES:
1 - Do a security wipe on the handheld

To 'reset' your connection information (in order to move an app from MDS to BIS):
2 - Install the handheld OS software to your PC, if not already on there
3 - Install Desktop Manager 4.x to your PC, if not already on there
4 - Open Desktop Manager then Application Loader, click Next until you are prompted with and Advanced button
5 - Select the erase/wipe options in there and continue through the process

The handheld should come back on its own to a base OS and you can turn the wireless on in order to register it on the carrier network. At this point, call Cingular back and let them know that everything is reset and there is no interaction with the BES/MDS.
In the beginning the Universe was created. This has made a lot of people very angry and is widely regarded as a bad move.
