Default Possible to delete a policy?

Please Login to Remove!

I've a second hand 7290 that was used on a BES. It has a security policy that survives even a javaloader wipe and reinstall of the OS. Is it possible to delete the policy (which is enforcing I set a long password on the device)?

Yes, it is possible. Please use the instructions found on this site: Unlocking the Blackberry.

Are you on a BES or BIS?

Can you confirm that this worked without any issues? Thanks.

If you are on a BES - which I believe you are, the IT Policy will automatically be pushed down. In some companies, overriding an IT Policy is a violation of security standards. Do so at your own risk.

The BB was on a BES. I no longer work for the company, but it's my BB. So I wanted to be able to use it on a BIS in future.
