Default deletion of security patch in 8800

Please Login to Remove!

I just sold my 8800 (I now have the 8300). My law firm put a security measure (I guess you call it a patch) on my phone that when it times out after two hours or you lock your phone, you need to type in the password to get into it.

I wiped the phone and the patch is still there.

My IT department tells me wiping should get rid of it.

I am trying it again (because wiping it is not working), but is there something else I should be doing?

Any help would be appreciated.

Look here, down to the link "how to remove an IT policy from my BlackBerry". Remember to release your PIN with your carrier.
Good luck.

I tried the fix and it did not work at all.

Does not having the SIM card in it have any effect on this? I don't think it does, but figured I would ask.

You can remove the IT Policy, but it you reactivate it against their BES server it will automatically be reapplied. When connected to a BES server the ONLY way to remove the policy it to have the BES admin apply a different policy. (ie. one without said restriction).
