This guide is intended for use by people that own their own Blackberry, and for whatever reason,
have inherited a company's IT Policy on their Device. Really, there are two scenarios where this
guide is useful.
If you're still connected to a Company BES, and simply want to install
the latest and greatest Third Party Application I wouldn't recommend
this approach. Go talk to your 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. Firstly, whenever you reconnect
to the Company Server, your security settings will revert back to how
they were. Secondly, and (perhaps) more importantly, you run the risk
of getting fired.
Ensure the Blackberry Desktop Manager is installed using Blackberry
Internet Service, and not Blackberry Enterprise Server. If
you are unsure, it would probably be a good idea to uninstall the
Desktop Manager and start again.
If you don't have the CD that came with your Blackberry, the Software can be downloaded
Wipe your Blackberry, creating a backup if necessary. Select Options/Security/Wipe on the Device.
If this option is unavailable, you may have to install the latest software on your Blackberry. You need to Download and install
the latest Desktop Manger Software, then the latest Handheld Software.
Connect your device, open the Desktop Manager, select Application Loader, and follow the prompts.
Once complete, the Options/Security screen on your Blackberry should not contain references to an IT Policy, you should now be able
to change all settings (including password prompts), and install Third Party Applications
