Default possible to use both intranet and internet?

Please Login to Remove!

Hi
my blackberry is set up to work behind the firewall with our corporate intranet. This is great for email. I can also surf the internet but am restricted by the firewall - i cannot check my yahoo mail or use IM because these are
restricted.

Is it possible to "switch" between being set up behind the firewall and being connected directly to the internet. Eg from 9am-6pm I want to be on the corp intranet. After 6pm and weekends (or during the day maybe using some manual switchover process) I want to be able to use the blackberry as if it was a regular nextel account, unrestricted by a firewall. I was hoping that there is a nextel web page that i can go to to flip between the 2 settings.

Short of being able to do this i could change my account to only be connected to the internet. If I do this, is there any software that i can run on my pc at work that will forward email to my blackberry and let me reply to it (as it i had sent it from my desk)

No. Your only option there, unless it is restricted by your corporate IT policy is to use the carrier browser for internet and blackberry browser for intranet

are you saying that its possible to configure the web browser on my blackberry to use my nextel carrier and for other features such as email to use the corp intranet?

What about IM (yahoo,MSN messenger etc) downloaded apps may work thruogh the firewall but i doubt it.

doubtful on the apps. The carrier browser goes through your carrier. The blackberry browser goes through MDS and so your corp firewall.

It sounds like you are on BES, so you should have the blackberry browser, and your NOL browser. Unless your corp IT policy is set to deny one or both.
