    Stored Messages

    Advertisement



    Fairly new to the whole blackberry thing, and was a little alarmed to hear that PIN's and sms were stored long term on the BES, and could be read by an administrator of the BES.

    Is this true? and if so, what exactly gets stored?

    If I send an PIN to a collegue, then fair do's i can see why the company may want to monitr that, but if I'm using the blackberry to send a persobal sms to my partner, that might be a different matter...

    What about sending a picture via BB messenger, or using yahoo messenger? can the content of these be seen?

    Whilst it may be fair to monitor messages between employess, if I'm using yahoo to have a private converstion with someone who doesn't work with the company, what about thier privacy rights?

    Just curious as to who may be snooping, lol...

    everything can be monitored, your carrier can monitor your SMS ;p but no, your BES enterprise admin can't read them..

    but some IM clients support encryption, this includes for example MSN. Dunno if Yahoo got it to, but I would assume so..

    not so worried about the carrier - was more concerned about a nosey admin getting a little bit bored, and having a snoop... I *may* have sent a picture or two, that in the wrong hands could be the teeniest bit embaressing..
