Hi all --  

I'm the IT Admin for Travel Planners and we have about 10 users on our BPS servere with their personal BlackBerries.  Unfortunately -- i can't restrict them from downloading or running any apps because its their personal phones.  So i've been also experiencing issues w the Facebook app 1.6 where my contacts/calendar are no longer synchronizing w my blackberry as they are grayed out if I go to the options menu.  

I've read out there about IT Policies for BES but I cant find anything for BPS... Can anyone help?

Thanks!!
-Dom

The IT policies for BES and BPS are the same - BPS = BES 4.1.4.
You said you've read about IT policies for BES but can't find anything for BPS - above are the list of IT policies for BPS.

Install this

Then edit your default it policy and set "Disable organizer data access..." to false; its location is:
RIM Value-Added Applications > Disable organizer data access for social networking applications

Here you can see the results of this policy:
