Default BES security lock

Please Login to Remove!

I was happily getting all of my personal email on my Tour and then I decided to accept the offer of my corporation and activate with their enterprise server in order to get corporate email on my device. The corporation pushed a security lock to my device requiring a password everytime I want to access the device if it was idle for 30 minutes. I couldn't get rid of the password requirement and note that it is only able to be removed from the device by the BES server manager. Just before I learned that the BES people have to remove it, I got frustrated and removed every service book I could find that came from the corporate email and when that didn't free up the password requirement, I wiped the device. I'm sitting here waiting for the wipe to complete. Will this do the trick or do I still have to contact the BES people? I guess the answer will be obvious in another 30-40 minutes when the device finishes wiping and restarting and I exceed the 30 minute limit, but I thought it would be of value to have this question in the forum.
Thanks.

Drat. It still wants a password. I'll have to email the BES people, I guess. Is there any work around?

A key question here: Is your employer really offering a BES connection as an option, or is it a requirement of your business?

If you have the option to get off of BES, contacting your BES Administrator is your best bet...if it is required, they may in fact be contacting you about the missing service books.

If your BES admin has set a device lock as an IT Policy there is not a way around it.

And trying to circumvent a company IT Policy is grounds for termination for some companies.

My advice to those who want to put their personal device on a company BES is don't do it. If you do it, don't try to use it for personal things, email, surfing, contacts, calendar, etc. If the company wants you on BES, then have them provide a device for company stuff and then you have your own for your personal communications. Much cleaner and safer that way.

Being a BES admin I just say no to personal liable devices. You don't save the company money and it's just a headache.

If possible ask to be issued a clean (empty) policy, they likely have one to handle terminations. If not there is a process detailed on here on how to wipe your device and apple a empty default policy.
