Default BES And SMS on Personal Phone

Please Login to Remove!

Hi - Have a Blackberry Pearl that is my personal one. I have added a BES to it for my email. Is there a way to block my company from seeing my SMS Texts and phone calls or anything like that or is there a way of knowing if they are logging them

Derek

No and no.
They can log your SMS messages, PIN messages and phone call logs.
You won't have any way of knowing they are doing so, and you can't prevent it unless you remove yourself from the BES.

You can't. Once you activated on BES, you gave full control over your device to your company.
Backup your device, do a wipe, and then restore your data.

This won't remove the IT policy though. If your device has a restrictive IT policy on it from the BES, it won't be removed by you doing a device wipe.

You should probably speak to your company and ask them to push a Default policy to your device and then remove you from them BES.

What does the IT policy control if it's not removed

The answer to that could be 100 pages long.
IT Policies from BES can be used to control just about every feature on the device should the BES admin want to.

Used to have my phone setup for BIS with Outlook Web Access. They upgraded from 2003 to 2007 and can't get it to work. Do you know anything about BIS with OWA

Yes, I know a bit.
BIS isn't officially certified to work with OWA 2007.
In some cases it works and other cases it won't.
All depends on how your Exchange admin set up the server.

You need to decide do you want your enterprise mail or personal usage with no monitoring? What is your company policy on SMS/PIN/MMS? We log everything but only scan for certain lexicon that is specific. We don't monitor for language / adult "chat" as we'd pretty much have to fire half the company. Unless your harrassing someone and HR gets involved just use your head.

If you don't want to officially request a clean policy just delete your service books and the BB will cease to communicate with the BES.

How do you delete the service books? I have the same issue. I allowed the company to install BES on my new personal Bold, then thought twice about the monitoring they could do. Now I'm considering removing it, but don't know how and really don't want to get the grief from our director of IT if I ask him to remove it.

Options->Advanced Options->Service Book.

Also search for IT policy removal after you've deleted them.
