Question Changing jobs - leaving BES - do I need to do anything?

Please Login to Remove!

I have an 8700c that I bought, but which is connected to my employer's BES setup.

I'm leaving the job next week. Do I need to take any action? When they deactivate my account through BES, will I continue to receive my other email accounts (BIS) normally? Aside from things I need to do, is there anything I can/should ask the IT folks to do as part of deactivating my account?

I've read the post on disabling the IT Policy. AFAIK, the only thing that this would do for me is the IT policy forces a screen lock after some period of inactivity that wasn't happening before I was connected to the BES. Other than this, is there anything else I should be concerned about in the IT Policy that might be a reason to go through that procedure?

I would definitely have the BES admins send a blank IT policy to your phone just to be safe. You can run into other problems that you may not have noticed before. Talk to your IT folks about sending a blank IT policy to your handheld.

Definitely remove the IT policy and then delete all of the BES service books.
