Default Corp SIM card on a secondary (personal) handheld - BES privacy

Please Login to Remove!

I have a personal unlocked blackberry handheld with a non working sim (I canceled the blackberry data service - for example, T-mob) but I still have a third party BES-exchange hosting that is linked to my personal device.

I also have a corporate blackberry device on a separate GSM network from my old personal one. (example, AT&T). This blackberry is linked to the corporate BES, meaning it logs everything on the device, as I have learned iin the forums.

Now, I can put the corporate AT&T SIM card into my private unlocked Tmob branded blackberry and all of a sudden my personal blackberry exchange hosted email works, as does facebook etc., and unlocked


1) can my corp track me using their SIM inside my old personal blackberry? I assume not because the unit has a separate PIN and is talking to my private BES host. (in other words, info flows now from my device to my personal private BES host and doesn't touch the corporate BES) Also, phone logs are done on the unit itself, unless we are talking on the carrier side. but i would only use the SIM for personal data. I belive the only thing the corp would know is the increased usage due to personal surfing?

2) can the web on the new personal blackberry be filtered or the filter is only a function of the BES security policy?

I guess bottom line I am curious how much is the SIM card identity tied to the corporation vs the device itslf (PIN / IMEI)

is the google app on the corp blackberry secure? ie can the company track content of the pages you look at and email you read/passwords since it appears as a website, i believe? or only the fact that you are accesing gmail?

thank you in advance everyone.
