Ok.....I have my new 8700c and I want to put some of my apps on it. I want to install the desktop manager but I don't know which to choose.....BES or Internet Service. The issue is.....my boss already set everything up and I'm thinking everything is on BES, but I don't want to screw anything up as he said it would if I installed the desktop manager and sync stuff. I think he's shoveling it, but I want to make sure that I don't screw anything up as all I want to do is install a few useful apps.

Chances are if you're on BES you probably won't be able to install any apps anyway due to IT Policies. If he's telling you not to, I wouldn't.

Many IT policies prohibit you from installing any software on your device. They do it for security reasons. I would hate to go back to my boss and tell him that I screwed up and did not do what he said.

I would clear it witht he IT people at the least but these people are not know for flexability!

Well I am IT.... I just haven't had any blackberry experience using BES. Matter of fact....these are our first ever blackberries. What do you guys think of a ota install. It should either take or not right?

Update.....they didn't lock down the 8700 with an IT policy, so I have all my useful apps now. Woohoo!!
