    I travel frequently for work and my blackberry is pretty much my only form of entertainment on these trips. I have a company phone which I believe is connected to a BES server. Does anyone know if I use my phone to check my personal e-mails, such as on my yahoo account via the internet (this account is not set up on my phone), if my employer has access to this information. I.E. could the IT guy who isn't exactly fond of me be reading my personal e-mails? I've already heard he can see any text message I might send and it got me wondering. Thanks so much for your help.

    What about BBM messages? Are those private?

    BBM Messages can also be seen by the BES Administrator. from what I can recall there is pretty much nothing that cannot be seen by the BES Admin

    have questions about this type of thing considering it in the newspapers all the time.

    None of your information passed through a company server is private, unless you are able to encrypt it somehow. This includes your phone conversations placed through company phones.

    Just like a PC on your company network, a BB through the company BES can be seen/reviewed by the administrators. There really is no privacy on a company owned device, pc or BB.

    While I'm not surprised "the man" can see anything that passes through a company server, I don't understand why that includes texts which I thought were transmitted over the phone line...meaning they weren't data.

    When I normally see something in the media about text messages from the past coming back to haunt someone, it is usually becuase those texts were retrieved from the phone company via subpoena or something like that. I haven't really seen a story where an employee gets fired for texts...though I have seen stories where someone gets fired for emails.

    I'm on a company phone with BES and have absolutely no problem with my company monitoring and/or having access to anything I say or websites I visit, or seeing any of my BBM convos for that matter.

    But I thought that BBM messages did not pass through the BES server and thus were not visible to the BES administrator. Perhaps I'm wrong about that?
