When one of the carriers releases 4.5 for the 8703 then you can load it to the device and use method 1 to remove it completely and have the firewall open, if desired.

I recommend going back now and reversing the steps of method 2 to remove the policy.bin file from the computer. Otherwise every subsequent device you plug in to the Desktop Manager will get the blank IT policy and you don't want that.

Loading the blank IT Policy will let you set a 3 character password, but wont let you unlock with the same correct password.

See this thread:

That is likely a specific OS issue, not an IT policy issue. Upgrade your OS.

If the Mac user runs Parallels or Bootcamp, with Windows, can't they run JLCmder?

You may want to read the first post. This in particular.

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.

Removing IT Policy Options
I have complied a short tutorial on how to remove IT Policy using BES.
This article will be helpful to both user and IT Admin.

I could not post link but check out my signature.:razz:

Allow outgoing calls when locked?
I successfully wiped my old 7100, installed the latest OS and forced the clean IT policy on it, but now I notice that it no longer has the option "allow outgoing calls while locked" listed under the security general settings.

Is it possible to add that feature to the policy.bin file?

Thank you 03-23-2009 12:06 PM

Thanks John.

I used your policy.bin yesterday on a 7130e that I had bought thru Craigslist.
When bought I wasn't able to connect to DM, it would ask for the password and that was as far as I could go.

Now I was able to download OS 4.2 and have the BB up to date.

Once again, Thanks

Is there a way to remove the ITPolicy from BB 8330 without de-registering the device on BES?

John Clark 03-29-2009 01:17 PM

Um, NO. Please read the first post. This procedure is NOT for those who are on a BES who want to "get around" the IT policy. There is NO way to have a BB on a BES without that BES's IT policy. If you remove it you are removed from the BES. The policy will be replaced if you reconnect to the BES.

This procedure is for those who are removing their device from the BES or got a device used with a leftover IT policy.

jsconyers 03-29-2009 01:18 PM

No. There is no way of removing the IT policy from ANY device without breaking your connection to the BES. I would not recommend trying to do so. It could get you into a lot of trouble with your employer and will be pointless in the end as once you're reactivated on the BES the policy will be pushed back to your device.

Also, could you please update your profile to reflect your current device/carrier? It will be helpful for future questions :smile:

It works like a charm!!! Thanks!!!

It Policy
Hi I got a Blackberry 8800 with BES. How can I get rid of the IT Policy. I already tried "Settofactorysetting" with JL_Cmder, upgraded to O 4.5.

No luck. I am not very technical savvy. And also happy to pay company that is doing the job for me.

Thanks for any help.

jsconyers 04-02-2009 10:44 AM

Welcome to the forums.

Are you currently on a BES? Do you receive work email on your device? If so, this is NOT what you want to be doing.

diptrkg 04-06-2009 07:48 AM

Installed the blank it policy and was able to get rid of the password to enter on my 7520, how can I get my bluetooth to work now? Does not pick up devices. Thanks

willrivera 04-24-2009 03:20 PM

Ok we have a empty policy set on our BES, usually we have the employees moved to that policy when they are leaving the company and then we remotly wipe their device to delete all the company information. we are having issues in where the employees change their data plan to personal and now they are no conecting to the bes so we are unable to remove the policies until they call the provider and get the bes data package again. is it posible to push an unlocked policy to a device with the wrong data or no data at all trhu desktop manager? and then wipe it. or policies are only pushed OTA?

Yes, I believe that is possible.
