    One small modification here is:
    > When we just mark this to false, all the OWA would go to false and gives you an OWA Basic appearence

    Do the following :
    Note: here one  is my test account.

    [PS] C:\>set-CASMailbox one -OWACalendarEnabled:$true -OWAContactsEnabled:$true
    -OWATasksEnabled:$true -OWAJournalEnabled:$true -OWANotesEnabled:$true -OWARemin
    dersAndNotificationsEnabled:$true -OWAPremiumClientEnabled:$true -OWASpellChecke
    rEnabled:$true -OWASearchFoldersEnabled:$true -OWASignaturesEnabled:$true -OWATh
    emeSelectionEnabled:$true -OWAJunkEmailEnabled:$true -OWAUMIntegrationEnabled:$t
    rue -OWAWSSAccessOnPublicComputersEnabled:$true -OWAWSSAccessOnPrivateComputersE

    Actually, I need to keep OWA active sync integration enabled and working on the iPhone  and remove the option for users to remote wipe a personal iPhone from OWA. Has that been tested.

    Setting any one of the OWA values for the CASMailbox disables everything else, so you need to set the values
    This doesn't break ActiveSync it just disables the page in OWA

    So just running ; Set-CasMailbox user -OWAActiveSyncIntegrationEnabled:$false
     is not a good idea?

    correct, you need to run
    get-casmailbox user | fl owa*

    then run set-casmailbox and any value that is null to $true
