    Question Remove BES

    Advertisement



    I know that there has been a thousand posts on this but I cannot find them. I have a phone that was on BES and has a password that can not be taken off because of the policy. How do I remove the phone from BES and give it a clean policy. If you can just send me a link to the forum I can figure it out from there. Can I just re-write the OS?

    Hi JD, that is a sticky problem, Reinstalling the OS will not do it. You have to have some one that HAS a Bes send a blank secruity policy to remove all the Policies. If you are still on good terms with the Company you were with , this would be the easiest as they should still have your PIN in the system.

    You can always lock the device and fail pw entry 10 times and that reformats your device. You lose everything, but you can reinstall the os and be back in business.

    It works like a charm :-)
    As far as I know with the upcoming OS 4.5 it will be possible to remove a policy without such workarounds.

    I highly doubt RIM would allow the quick ability of removing an IT Policy, especially with their desire to appease their Government clients.

    Are there any links that discuss this rumored feature?

    that makes no sense because the bes server communicates with the PIN on the phone unless entering your pw 10 times is gonna change the PIN your outta luck (hint: it does NOT change your pin)

    I guess RIM would not have a problem with a policy removal. When you are on a BES the policy is pushed to the device, so it makes no sense to delete the policy to get rid of companies restrictions. This procedure is only needed for people who got their devices from eBay with policy on it. Or for people who leave the company and don't use BES anymore. I will try to find the link, I saw this info in a early 4.3 feature list.

    Re: Remove BES

    Ideally If you are leaving the company with your device the best option is to have the BES admin send a blanck policy to the device before you leave and then remove your account form the BES, but most end users don't know this needs to be done till it is too late the 2 links provided above are great work arounds.
