Default How do I make a work BB a personal BB ?

Please Login to Remove!

I have a fairly new BB that used to be on my employers server, it was sent to me with the email service already downloaded and the wireless server access, etc. It's mine now as they discontinued using them and sold it to me very cheap. Question is, how can I get into the thing to change it to my personal settings? I have to enter a password everytime I pick it up, and the test messaging capability is locked out. I would like to put the sim card from my current cell phone (ATT) into it and start using it as my personal cell phone and email as it has the 500 contacts I put in it still in there.
Thanks.

Have the BES admin push you a empty policy, then you can remove the password requirement.

And you will also have to get a BIS plan.

You could try this

Remove IT Policy - BlackBerryFAQ.com

Make a backup, otherwise you will lose all of your data.

Click start. In the box at the bottom of the screen, where it says "start search", type in "run". without the ".

Thanks ! I've done this and it seems to be working. I'll play with it a bit longer and see if I can get it all working correctly.
