I'm the technical manager for Freedom and can clear this up a little. In cases with a BES we normally have two scenarios.
1) The BES is setup but uses a pretty much default setup (no special IT polices which is the most common). Depending on the version of the BES install this may or may not allow the user to change the keystroke injection/input simulation. 99% of the time if the user has a handheld with 4.2 and above on nothing needs to be done on the BES.
2) The BES setup specifically denies Keystroke injection/input simulation (or third party app installs, etc). In this case you have to have an software configuration created on the BES for the driver application. As said above there is no way to work around a BES policy.
In the first situation most BES installs will have event injection/keystroke injection set to deny by default. However it doesn't seem to effect most of the BlackBerry's running 4.2. Don't ask me why because I haven't got a clue.
There are a lot of variables on the BES, most of the time when I come across a BES user nothing has to be done on the BES at al, just install the drivers and keyboard as normal. The only time you have to mess with the BES is when it has been specifically set up to restrict something, in which case you will need to get your BES admin to create the software configuration.
