    Lightbulb 8700r...Can't Send SMS...Can't Get Rid of IT Policy by any means

    Advertisement



    Hi i'm new to this forum and just recently inherited a BB 8700r from a company because they were bringing in a new line of BB for the employees. But for some reason i can't send SMS i can only send email which i think goes hand in hand with the very strict IT policy in place which thus far i have been unable to get rid of by anymeans even going through the bin registry. Any help would be greatly appreciated

    is the phone still connected to BES and renewing its policies trough there?

    What about a OS upgrade / handheld reset / wipe with JL_Cmder ?

    Its not connected to a BES and the javaloader does nothing...it did a complete wipe to the point where there was nothing on the blackberry and this video tape icon showed up with a big x on it and still the it policy was still on there. Handhled reset does nothing aswelll...i'm completely stumped i don't know what to do and not being able to send texts is brutal

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~yeah getting rid of the IT policy isn't as easy what people think there's more than wiping the phone

    Found on another site however never tested by me

    How To: Remove IT Policy

    Removing IT Policy.

    This is a How-To for removing IT policy from your BB. A quick check to
    see if your BB is under IT policy can be done by going to
    Options/Security on your Device. If you see any references to IT
    Policy whatsoever, then you have a potentially restrictive IT Policy
    that can be removed.

    The Disclaimer/Intended Use.

    This guide is intended for use by people that own their own
    Blackberry, and for whatever reason, have inherited a company's IT
    policy on their device. Really, there are two scenarios where this
    guide is useful.
    •You bought a Blackberry on eBay and are unable to make changes
    to the settings or install Third Party Applications.
    •You have a Blackberry that was previously connected to a
    company's BES and, for whatever reason, you no longer intend to
    connect to that BES.
    Important: If you're still connected to a company BES, and simply want
    to install the latest and greatest third party application I would not
    recommend this approach. Talk to your BES administrators and ask them
    to grant you the appropriate rights. There are two problems in using
    this guide to bypass your company's security policy. First, whenever
    you reconnect to the company server, your security settings will
    revert back to how they were. Second, and perhaps more importantly,
    you run the risk of getting fired.

    Procedure:

    Step 1
    Ensure the Blackberry Desktop Manager is installed using Blackberry
    Internet Service, and not Blackberry Enterprise Server. If you are
    unsure, it would probably be a good idea to uninstall the Desktop
    Manager and start again.
    If you don't have the CD that came with your Blackberry, the Software
    can be downloaded here.

    Step 2
    Download the file policy.bin and save it in your Blackberry
    installation directory (C:\Program Files\Research In
    Motion\BlackBerry).

    Step 3
    Wipe your Blackberry, creating a backup if necessary. Select
    Options/Security/Wipe on the Device.
    If this option is unavailable, you may have to install the latest
    software on your Blackberry. You need to Download and install the
    latest OS for your device. Connect your device, open the Desktop
    Manager, select Application Loader, and follow the prompts.

    Step 4
    Close the Desktop Manager if it is open.

    Step 5
    From the Windows XP Start Menu select Run..., and at the prompt type
    regedit. In the tree on the left hand side, navigate to:

    HKEY_Current_Users\Software\Research In
    Motion\BlackBerry\PolicyManager

    Right-Click the Policy Manager Folder and select New/String Value.
    Name the value Path. Now, Double-Click the Path Subkey and set Value
    Data to:

    C:\Program Files\Research In Motion\BlackBerry\policy.bin

    Step 6
    Open the Desktop Manager.

    Step 7
    Connect the Device.
    Verification

    Once complete, the Options/Security screen on your Blackberry should
    not contain references to an IT Policy, you should now be able to
    change all settings (including password prompts), and install Third
    Party Applications.
