    Dear All,

    sorry if this question was already asked in this forum, I searched a lot but couldn't find.

    My question is to know what can remain private on a BES blackberry. We have an answer here :

    What syncs/is stored/is accessed by the BES includes:

    * Corporate email
    * Corporate calendar
    * Corporate PIM data (address book, memo pad, tasks)
    * Browser bookmarks
    * Password Keeper data (although this cannot be accessed in any way, even when restored to another device, without the PK password)
    * PIN messaging data (including the actual message sent/received); logging turned off by default
    * Phone call data (date/time of call, number called/received, length of call); loggined turned on by default
    * Text message data (including the actual verbage of the text message); logging turned off by default
    * Blackberry Messenger data (this one is extremely klunky to get and I don't know a single BES Admin that turns this one on)
    * All applications installed on the device (games, stock apps, etc.)
    * OS version installed on the device (so we'll know if you upgraded to a beta OS!)

    In addition anything that is a part of automatic wireless backup could *technically* be viewed by performing a restore to a new device.



    What a BES Admin can't see:

    * BIS email messages (I *might* be able to see what service books you have, but cannot read the messages)
    * 3rd party IM messages (Yahoo!, MSN, etc), although I can see which of these applications you have installed.
    * BlackBerry Messenger contact names/PINs
    (can't link the source since I'm not 10 on this forum)


    But does any of you know if it is possible to crypt / protect some of this data (such as SMS TEXT messages for instance) ?

    It seems that BIS data remains out of sight of the Admin, does it mean that for instance they can't see my Gmail Calendar (synchronised on my BB via BIS) ? Same for the gmail contact list/details ?

    Many thanks for you answer !

    When at its most restrictive, BES disables user end encryption on the device.
    Generally not a good idea to mix personal and work where BES exists. I carry two BBs. No personal use on work BB except for emergency contact information.

    They issued the bb, it is essentially their property. Plan on them being able to access everything. With exception I believe, to the media card. And I may be wrong on this.
