Default Switching from work use blackberry to personal use problems

Please Login to Remove!

Hi,

I have a Verizon 7130e blackberry that I use to use for work. I worked at a big corporate firm, so the IT department put a bunch of security locks on it. It has the enterprise activation software on it. However, since I now reactivated it on my own personal verizon plan, I am having a few problems. I have reset the phone entirely, but it still doesn't have browser function, won't let me transfer my numbers from my old phone to this because of security preferences, etc.

Basically, I want to know how to reset to the whole phone and install new software on it so all of these security limitations are not in place any more.
Should/Can I install the regular internet browsing software over this, will it let me? Any help would be appreciated. Thank you.

Cheers,
Danny

Are you still connecting the BB to your work computer and receiving corporate email? The restrictions will apply to all devices that are connected to your company's BES (blackberry enterprise server) regardless whether the device is yours or the company's and regardless who pays the bill data service. If you want company email on your device, you're stuck with the company's limitations.

If, on the other hand, you simply want to use the device on your own and not connect to your company's BES, ask your company to push a blank IT policy to your device or follow the instructions here:
Remove I.T. Policy from a BlackBerry... - BlackBerry Forums at CrackBerry.com

But, be forewarned that following the instructions, and then reattaching the device to the company's BES will cause the restrictions to be pushed down again. Plus, many people here claim that it's grounds for termination (it's not at my firm, but that's just my limited experience).

Thanks I will try that. I don't have a usb cord with me right now so I can't tell you if it works.
