    Question Employer blocked PIN and SMS

    Advertisement



    Our company just pushed through, electronically, new standards for our blackberries. The three biggies: 1-mandatory passwords (inconvenient, but not my issue); 2-removed ability to send PIN; 3-removed ability to send SMS. I now can't send PIN messages to my fellow blackberry users. And, I can't send SMS text messages to my wife! arrggghhh. NOTE: Whatever it is that they pushed down eliminated (as far as I can tell) any ability to deactivate the password and also eliminated any options to PIN or SMS - the only options that appear now for communication is "call" or "email".

    Is there a way around this? Any suggestions? In a perfect world, someone will let me know how to work around the password issue and also the PIN and SMS issues.

    HELP!

    Your IT dept sets the policies for your BB no way around it unless you get to be buddies with someone in the IT dept and he pulls you a favor(dont think it isnt done lol) The other option is to get another BB for personal use. That can be pricey and maybe not worth the hastle......

    Suzzy is correct, If you are connected to the corporate BES the policies they set will be in effect. no workarounds, sorry.

    For some reason I cant view your profile, but if you have tmobile you can still sms through email using (mobilenumber)@tmomail.net

    I'm sure they have done this for compliance reasons as has my company. But they are in the process on installing a a product call PIN Cushion which can trace all PINS and SMS messages. Suggest it to them.

    greenec63, Welcome to PinStack.

    A bit of personal advice, even if you find the method of bypassing the Company IT Policy, DON'T ATTEMPT IT. That is known in the corporate world as Violating Corporate Policy and is usually subject to disciplinary action as laid out the the Human Resources policies available to every employee.

    Let us know if there is anything we can do to help with your BB.

    You can use teleflip (tendigitnumber@teleflip.com) to send a email to most cell phones as a txt message. But again, be careful. Also keep in mind that due to new laws, all corporations have to log emails and archive them so careful what you say.
    Cheers.

    Your wifes provider may accept emails as sms. ie if you email 3213213214@telusmobility.com then they would get your email as an sms.

    They just can't respond.
