Default Another new BB user with another newbie question...

Please Login to Remove!

I just got the 8830 and it is taking me some getting used to. I LOVE the trackball! Within 1/2 hour of using the 8830, I was using my other phone (Moto Q) and found myself trying to scroll with the Q's center button .

Anyways, I got it connected at work to our BES. It is my personal phone as my compnay does not use Verizon, but I didn't want to carry two phones around. Well, I hadn't had time to read through the forums before I got it set up and now I can't install any programs. I think it's is somehow blocked by being connected to work's BES. Is there anyway around this (I realize this would defeat the purpose, however, I know there are a lot of smart people out there who might have figured it out)?

If not, I am correct in saying that you cannot run programs from the storage card? Do you think this will ever be possible?

If I am out of luck, then I might just go back to the Q and suffer when I travel abroad. I really enjoy the freedom of putting all the "cool" new apps on the phone. I guess this the perk I give up for having it on BES.

Is it possible to move to BIS or is this only if my workplace provides this service? Will they be able to put the same restrictions on the phone?

Sorry if this is covered in other posts, I tried to search but couldn't find all of the answers (ducks for cover). Figured I give a new post a shot.

Thanks in advance...

Your company probably put an IT Policy on your BB to prevent you from doing things they don't want you doing on their devices, such as adding 3rd party apps. I wouldn't mess with corporate IT Policies on your BB if you value your job, even though it is your personal phone.

If they allow OWA and POP access, you could move to BIS and would have no restrictions, provided you deleted the IT policies. You would not have wireless sync of contacts and calendar and full email reconciliation however.

The storage card is only for music and pictures as far as I know.

Yeah, it says "The IT policy does not allow downloading third-party applications".

Do any of the other BB allow programs to be run from the storage card?

Also, I tried to send a picture from my Mac to the BB over BT, but it didn't work. Is this something that is disabled by Verizon or my IT group?

Thanks.

Can't run apps on the card AFAIK. Only for pics and music.

Company probably has it locked down.

So if my IT group can impose those types of restrictions, can they do the same for the web browser? Can they see what pages I'm looking at?

So in general, you cannot download/install software to Storage Card at all, no matter what you have, it must be installed on on-board memory?

I got 8300, and I wish we can store/save software and applications on storage card.

Thank You.
