Our Blackberry Enterprise Server (BES) is setup to black users from downloading apps from Blackberry Ap world. I don't know why it's like this, it has been this way since before I started working here. Anyway a manager has asked me if I can remove his blackberry from the IT policy so he can download apps (it's his personal phone), but he would still like to be connected to BES to receive emails, sync contacts, etc... Is this possible to allow him to download apps but still keep him on BES?

Hi there,

yes that is possible. You can assign a different policy to that manager. (e.g. you create another policy where the 'blocking' isn't included and you assign that policy to the manager.)

greetings,

Michael

I was looking on the BES server and all the users are assigned the default policy. It looks like the default BES policy hasn't been configured, it is still at all it's default settings. Is the default setting of the default BES policy to block app installation? If not they why can't they download apps?

have they got a subscription for Blackberry Apps? Does the telco allow it as well?

I don't know what you mean by subscription to Blackberry Apps. On my personal Blackberry I can just go to the Blackberry App world icon and download whatever I want. I don't remember anything about a subscription to App world in my contract. And yes the carrier does allow it, as my personal Blackberry is on the same carrier.

The user just didn't have App world installed.  I wish all my IT problems were this simple.
