    Just curious as to why you're so hell bent on circumventing IT policy.

    Wouldn't it be easier to just use a personal device to take whatever picture(s) you're looking to take?

    The problem I have is with the people not addressing the issue and giving me their moral stance.

    Seems more like folks have been cautioning you as to the potential consequences if you should succeed in what you're trying to do.

    *shrug* It's your livelihood.

    Mind you...this is just my opinion, but go ahead and belittle me like you have several others...

    Seems like you have issues with authority. Rules and "laws" are in place for a reason. Break them and get caught and you will suffer the consequences.

    Obviously, your "firm" has a specific reason for doing this. I am in the HR field and knowingly going against any company policy is reason for termination.

    I believe the IT policy overrides the local policies on the device. It may be possible to break the IT policy, but it definitely wouldn't go unnoticed by the BES admin. So there may be a risk in doing so.
    I have a BlackBerry and a WhiteApple. :)

    Well, here are my 2 cents. I would do as suggested above; contact the IT dept. to find out why they're locking it or with other coworkers. I work on the field so I have to have a camera on my phone to snap pictures if needed for incident reports and such. Do it the right way; ask first then if okay'd i guess snap away. I believe all we were all trying to do was help you.

    Don't do this if you do not want to deal with this:

    DISCLAIMER: The attached Policy.bin (in the Zip file) sets the Firewall to Enabled and locked!. I have searched - no scoured the Internet for an IT Policy that unlocks the Firewall, but have not been able to find it. Additionally, I have been told there is no such thing.
    If you don't mind going through the trouble of the red lock, you can try this to get rid of it:

    The only problem is if you do that if you try to reactivate the bes the policy will just be reinstated and the camera locked down again~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~

    Yup, then there would be a never ending cycle, break policy, no email, setup email, re-instate camera block.

    One of many reasons companies like BB devices is that they have complete control oner the device via BES.

    If your policy doesn't allow camera use, there is no way to enable it without removing the policy (and loosing your email access). If such a workaround existed as you describe, the security people at RIM would probably issue a security patch to close up the hole.

    Just my $0.02.

    Goddamn, you sound like my ex. I know you're not though, because my ex is too broke to have a Blackberry.

    Dude lighten up, I don't think anyone is giving their "moral stance", they are just telling you how it is. BES/IT dictate what does or does not go on blackberry in their companies. Wipe it clean as many times as you want, when it tries to connect your right back where you started from. If the camera is that big an issue just buy your own and get BIS and you can have two one for work and one for play. I have the 8820 for work and the 8310 for play not that big of a deal. If I get caught with 8310 where not suppose to my neck.
    All these people are trying to do is help, you can take it or leave it. I was always told not to ask if you are not ready for answer. My two cents.
