Hi Experts..
I use my berry day to day in a BIS setup.
I ran thru a test enterprise activation to test a BES server install, which worked, now im setup for BIS and BES.

How do I remove the BES activation and return back to how I was?
(hopefully keeping all my old customizations im keen not to have to wipe my device in the process)

You should be able to do this by deleting the BES service Books.  Go to Options | Advanced Options | Service Books and delete anything named Desktop.  Desktop is the generic name of the service that BES uses.  You might want to resend your service books from BIS just in case you accidently deleted one that you need.

Thanks for the reply. I like your thinking.
Will that break the abilty to Enterprise Activate to other BES servers in the future though?.
As a IT Consultant building SBS networks reguarly, and BES servers semi regularly I need the ability to test with my own Berry to verfiy BES server built properly.
Then remove this but not stuff up the phone for the next test.

No deleting the service books from the BES will only prevent you from sending/receiving mail through that source.  You can still Enterprise Activate again.  

You could also consider getting your device the way you want it.  Then before you activate it on a BES do a backup, Enterprise Activate then play around.  If everything is fine secrutiy wipe and restore your backup.  That should work also.  You would lose any e-mail your device received from the BIS between backup and restore.
