    Hi there,

    I have a bunch of old blackberry's which are all BES devices. I am looking to give them to friends/sell some of them and was wondering if that can be used with out a BES server just as a BIS device? Currently they have BIS and BES service books as i used to use them with my work email and personal email.

    Thanks for your help.

    They'll work fine but some may be limited in their abilities due to IT policies that have been pushed to the device from the server. If the phones were to be wiped and the OS reloaded the IT policies would be gone and those limitations gone as well.

    Thanks for that. The only IT policy on all of them was the default IT policy already setup in the BES out of the box with no changes what so ever.

    Is it best to wipe them through desktop manager?
