Default Left Former Company BES But Security Policies Enforce 2 Minute Time Out

Please Login to Remove!

I recently left my former company and BES server. Even when I wipe my handheld, which I own, the security time out policies still remain on my Blackberry. As a result, I can't change the timeout, which is set for every 2 minutes, and is completely annoying. In the security menus, there are little red locks next to the "Enabled" field under "Password" and the "2 min" field under "Security Timeout." How can I get rid of the former BES policy, which I no longer need (I access personal email via web). I called Verizon technical support and they offered no real support. Their best guess was to replace the phone entirely, which won't work due to travel requirements I have in the near future.

Remove the IT Policy (or you will actually push a "blank" policy to it).

Good luck, and welcome to the BBF.

Welcome to BlackBerry Forums.

The FAQ site here is a wealth of accumulated knowledge - BlackBerry FAQ - BlackBerryFAQ

Included is a page called "Removing an IT Policy" - Remove IT Policy - BlackBerryFAQ

It should work on your 8830. Good luck!
