Default Security policy help needed

I left a large worldwide bank and had used my new 7100 for work. My 7100 was added to the BES and worked without a problem, of course I had to expect that I would have all IT policy's for all Blackberrys pushed to my BB as well. Well now that I have moved to anothe employer I cannot get the security policy off of the BB. I have wiped and loaded the applications a total of 3 times. I also made sure that I was of the BES and not getting any further updates wirelessly. Any ideas on how I can completely wipe and rid myself of these annoying policies that are in place?

You can drop your own modified policy in your programs research in motion directory that will alter the settings so you can disable. PM me your email an I will send to you.

Pharma - please (seriously) share with us how to change an IT Policy once you are no longer on the original BES!

the policy file he mentions can be found here:

C:\Documents and Settings\<username>\Application Data\Research In Motion\BlackBerry\

mine is listed as DefaultPolicySet.bin. i'm guessing he's simply referring to replacing this, but i'm not sure what after that point...

If the original policy was in the form of a policy.bin file, replacing it will work. However, if the policy was originally applied wirelessly, it has to be modified wirelessly.

So since it was done wirelessy, I cannot change it at all? I am stuck with the policy?

It can only be changed (set back to a default) from the original BES. If someone knows otherwise, please chime in.

Sorry I haven't been on in a little bit, but I sent the policy to the user and gave the instructions to put the policy.bin file in c:\program files\research in motion\blackberry and then syncrhonize. He sent me an email which I can post if you need that it worked like a charm. All I did was create a policy that had a =false value in it an then after you drop the file and sync you can disable the security. It doesn't remove the policy but alows you to disable security. I can send you the policy.bin if you want it.

Also, we pushed the policy down originally an placed a pointer into the registry, but found that users would receive a policy error when logging into their laptop when offline from the network, so our policy is now put into the directory as mentioned above. I didn't want the policy defined by us put on my blackberry, that is why I modified a policy.bin that would allow me to disable if I want. You can customize your own settings for your policy.

pjn308 - please post your feedback you gave me if you get a chance.

Hi all, this fix worked like charm... All I had to do was drop the file in the right path and synch the BB and that was it, I can now disable the security settings. Thank you so much for your help with this, it has saved me a lot of trouble.

Outstanding information. We should get the detailed solution posted in a Tips FAQ.

Great work!

I'de like more information on disabling the policy, but I suppose its good to note that you can overwrite a policy on any BES, not necessarily the original one that set the policy.
