Default New to BB and needing advice

Please Login to Remove!

I am a new user of Blackberry I have just got an 8700f on Orange (UK). It is a corporate machine, as I needed access to our Lotus notes e-mail account whilst on the move. Once I got a suitable bluetooth car kit (THB Bury – seems pretty good, don’t waste your time with Nokia’s bluetooth kit – keeps losing the signal) I accepted it as a good phone replacement to my 6230i and eagerly awaited my company to sort out enterprise activation to the BES they have set up so that I could finally read e mails on the hoof.

When the day arrived – disaster!! Yes I was finally able to access my e mails but the paranoia in the company is so high that every security measure has been instigated – of main concern (and really stupid) is the fact that the BB locks every time its holstered or after 5 minutes whichever comes sooner, requiring a password of 8 digits which must contain letters numbers and symbols – A really safe thing to put into your BB when your hooting down the motorway at 70m.p.h. Also the browser/WAP has been disabled. Can’t alter any of these settings on my unit – or at least I don’t think so. I am looking for a compromise to offer them – is there anyway I can protect my email functions by password without disabling the whole machine? – i.e. I understand the need for security on the e mail part of the BB but I need to access the phone in an easier and safer way. – Can I disable the email and lock it without locking out the BB? – can I disconnect from the BES and easily re-connect when I want to access e-mails? I can live without the browser and WAP I suppose – having said that it would be nice if I could use the BB as a modem to allow me to bluetooth to my palm internet browser.

I know there’s a lot of questions here and they’ve probably been asked before somewhere on the forum – but I would appreciate any thoughts to ameliorate my disappointment at the solution I’ve ended up with.
