Default setting a new it policy without wiping the blackberry

Please Login to Remove!

I have setup a bes and the 6 users that are using this server had their blackberrys with their previous employer. Well in trying to do the wireless install, it stops when it gets to the it policy. i have pushed the default policy and a blank policy but i still cant get a new it policy operational. Wiping their blackberrys is the very last option. Are they any other ways of setting the new policy???

I don't believe that there is any other option. If pushing the policy down and it doesn't take I think you will need to do a wipe.

Not sure how wiping the device will help as that only removes application data and not the policy.

Activate the device on a BES

If a device that was previously on a BES/Domain belonging to companya.com has been removed and you're trying to re-activatione on a domain belonging to companyb.com then Company B's IT policy should over-write, the current policy. I do this all the time on our loaner units the come back with a 'lock-down' policy enabled and I want to get it removed.

However it's definately 'best practice' to do a han-held wipe prior to activating on a different BES.
