Default Company Issued BB

Please Login to Remove!

Hope someone can answer this question for me. I have a company issued bb with BES. If I buy my own through ATT and I pop in my SIM card from my corporate issued bb, will the new one have the same functionality and receive my corp email etc?

That is correct your personal BB would have to be attached through the BES in order to have that ability

As an FYI, it really isn't a good idea to put your personal device on a company BES since companies tend to lock things down and limit what you can and cannot do with an IT Policy. Plus, your personal stuff is no longer personal on BES.

So just to clarify what's been said already.

You CAN put your SIM into your Personal BlackBerry, and you'll get everything you have on your Company BlackBerry EXCEPT your Company email and wireless sync of your Contacts, Calendar, etc. To get that you would need an Enterprise Activation (EA) password from your Company's IT department.

If you get an EA password and perform an Enterprise Activation on your BlackBerry, it will connect to your Company email, and sync your Contacts, Calendar, etc. from your Company email system. HOWEVER, if your company has any "IT Policies" (device restrictions) in place, they will also be applied to the device, and are a bit tricky to get rid of. Typically there is just an IT Policy to require a password on the device, but anything that can be set on a BlackBerry can be set - and locked - by IT Policy. For example, it can disable the device's camera or turn off SMS.

As for "personal" stuff, the BES has no access to BIS email or data on the SD Card. I'm not sure about the latest release of BES, but even though you can completely wipe a BlackBerry from a BES, I don't think it can touch the SD card (although they CAN enforce SD card encryption which makes all data on the card useless as soon as the BES's encryption key is wiped).

Definitely not a good idea. Its painful, and you give up certain rights to your BB. I think they can also lock you from installing applications, etc. if your IT policy is stringent. keep them separate, you will be happier in the long run.

Not quite true.

The BES can handle BIS in 3 ways:

1) Allow all with no restrictions
2) Allow incoming but force outgoing to go through BES
3) Deny BIS setup altogether.
