Default Can you Bypass/Hack BES Security Temporarily?

Please Login to Remove!

I recently rec'd a replacement for my blueberry which is a 7290 and was all excited about using bluetooth. When I first received the device there was no BES security on it...after doing a full restore/synch with my desktop all the security policies, etc. were enforced. Then I discovered that bluetooth has been disabled by our administrators....Nice.

So here are the questions.

1) Is there any way to do a complete reset on the 7290 to completely wipe out the resident memory? I've done the "wipe" and also did the battery reset but it seems the Security Admin Polices remain. I'm thinking if I can get it 'clean' again I'll only do a selective restore and maybe I can avoid getting the BES stuff pushed down.

2) So all I really want to do is get the darn bluetooth enabled. Is there any way to hack/bypass BES security to enable bluetooth (even though it will get reset from the server periodically)...then I'll just hack it again...assuming there is a way.

3) If the answers to 1) and 2) above basically leave me sol...Are there any recommended sites/forums that may contain the underground info I'm looking for ?

Thanks in Advance !

Your organization enabled the security policy for a reason. I suggest you live with it.

Even if there was a way to do what you want, which I don't think there is, I sincerely doubt anyone here is going to offer up any help on this one.

First of all, if you had searched you would have realized that we don't really agree with these types of posts, and are generally looked down on. Nearly all of us here are professionals, either users or administrators.

To sum it up though, those policies were set there by your company's admin guys. They are there for a reason. If the blackberry is on their dime, you should adhere to their policies. If it is your blackberry and you are paying for it, you are connecting to their systems and likewise must adhere to their policies.

Also keep in mind that as this site is growing exponentially every day, it's more than likely your administrators read this forum and thread titles such as "hacking BES!!!!" are probably going to draw their attention. It wouldn't be terribly hard to figure out a user that is trying to compromise the security policies set in place and disable that user permenantly, simply by the information in his/her posts.

Lastly, no. There is no way to "bypass" your companies security standards.

Default Thanks for the replies.

Pretty much the replies I had expected and I already tried the phone call. Oh well, no harm in putting the question out there as it may help others (or not as the case may be).

Thanks for the responses.

as soon as you sync the Bes will push to your BB and there is no way to avoid it. im sure someone out there has figured out a way do a search and you may get lucky... our company has not disabled the bluetooth option which is a good thing b/c the speaker on this bb sucks
