Default Force applications to NOT use BES as transport

Please Login to Remove!

Is it possible to force specific applications to use an internet APN on instead of the BES one?

Take a scenario, corporate policy blocks access to MSN, however I have a 2nd APN on the sim which allows me to browse the internet (wap browser) direct and not via the BES. Is this possible?

I found the TCP aspect under options, and completed this with the APN details, but cannot seem to get further thatn this. Any help is appreciated.

This isn't what you want to hear, but it's friendly advice: If this blackberry and/or the BES is the property of your employer, do not attempt to evade or disable the policy. Could end badly for you, seriously.

Edit: I looked at some of your earlier posts, Johnny, and maybe I was out of line...don't know. I can see IT trying to manage something like google maps. The MSN example, however, is what set me to preaching.

Odds are that they're forcing you to connect via BES/MDS anyway.

If you want full control over your BB, purchase one and keep it off their BES.

I agree with the previous poster. Don't try to circumvent your company's IT Policies, especially if they are paying the bills. Whether you agree or not, they are there for a reason.

They can block the use of any other browsers via IT policy. This is probably what is preventing you from getting any farther.
