No, there is no way around the security that is enforced on a BlackBerry connected to a company BES.
As others stated, you can try talking to your IT Dept/BES Admin, but they probably have good reasons for disabling it. One reason I can think of is if the company is paying for the device and the plan, and you're using text messaging for personal use, the device's plan may not include SMS - and is therefore an added expense. Given that you're using it for personal use, they disable it.
Right. SMS is not part of any plan on any carrier lately, so many companies choose not to use it, especially if PIN messaging and e-mail are included in the BES package.
