    Disabling a BES on a Blackberry

    Does anyone know if there's a way to disable a BES connection on a Blackberry without wiping the device? I'd been using a BES on my Storm and want to switch over to BIS. Would prefer not to wipe my blackberry. Thanks.

    You could have your BES administrator delete your account from the BES. Then activate BIS on your device and change your default services under advanced options. It will show enterprise activated, but it won't do anything. You can also delete the "desktop" services under the service book which will disable the BES without wiping.

    You have to switch plans with your carrier from BES to BIS.

    Go to Options/Advanced Options/Service Books and delete all entries with the prefix "Desktop" this will essentially remove your BES and you can now set up your BIS.

    no matter if you wipe or not...you'll still have the IT policy on the device...good luck
    besides...you can use both BIS and BES on a device...

    The biggest benefit of BES is the complete sync of your email, calendar, appointments, contacts with your computer over the air. The downside is your phone pretty much becomes property of your employer whom can see anything you do, and prohibit you from doing things on your phone.
