Default Moving off BES - how do I get rid of security policy?

Please Login to Remove!

I have an 8700. It used to be on a corporate network with BES. They installed some security policies.

It is now no longer on BES. I am trying to enable Bluetooth but it seems I need to add some services to my handset. But when I try to do this it tells me to see my administrator since the security policy does not allow this.

Is there a way I can delete the security policy? Or do I need to wipe the handset and start from scratch?

if you are still in touch with the IT admin they can remove it, otherwise there is a guide here (and possibly on BBfaq) if you search.


Remove IT Policy

Wiping the handset will have no effect . . . it just removes the data. You must get the Admin of the BES to remove security policies. If anyone could remove them . . .they wouldn't be security policies.

Follow the IT policy removal in blackberryfaq that should do the trick! Have used it multiple times

I have now received my unlock code from AT&T - should I unlock the handset from AT&T first and then try to remove the security policy or the other way around? Or are they totally independent factors?

It makes no difference. One will not affect on the other. It will stay unlocked and with a blank IT policy regardless of which is applied first.

Enjoy!

I am pretty sure they are independent. Unlock will allow you to use with other carriers.

you cannot relock the device once it is unlocked. upgrading/downgrading/blanking the device and reloading the same OS, none of that will alter the device being unlocked.
