Default does web browsing on my BlackBerry device pass through my corporate server?

Please Login to Remove!

If my BB is on BES, will all web surfing pass through my corporate server, or will it go through Verizon's server? Is there a way to bypass the corporate server for web surfing?

Thanks.

I don't know Verizon specifically, but on Cingular, we have the option to use the "BlackBerry Browser" which goes through our corporate system (much faster) or the Cingular port, called "Internet Browser" which goes through Cingulars system (a bit slower).

It works the same on T-Mobile, although I haven't compared the speeds of the two options yet. Some programs that use the internet--like Berry411--default to the Blackberry Browser (corporate internet) which could be a problem for some.

It's also dependant on your BES admin who can set a policy on your handheld to force all web traffic through BES. On my handheld you can tell which one you're using as the 'public' browser (not going through work) can't access our intranet (the BES/MDS browser can).

This definitely a quick and easy way to identify that!

Normally, you should ask you BES admin to enable the "Mobiel Data Services" to use the corporate network, and you then should find the "Desktop [IPPP]" in the Service Book on your BB.

Although sometimes the BES is slower (depends), but it may save your traffic cost, esp. when you have a flat plan monthly.
