Just a quick question here - we've tested and found that a SIM card with an iPhone/Android data plan on it won't work in Blackberry (at least not the data portion) but is there a way to prevent a card associated with a BES/BIS data plan from working in other Smartphones? The data use is the big issue for us.
I know this should be as simple as telling our users they're forbidden to do so, but... they're users, and we've had a few go a bit rogue...
Environment: Bell Mobility, BESX, ActiveSync
Solved! Go to Solution.

Current BlackBerry smartphones require access to BIS or BES, which requires special data plans, which is why the iPhone/Android data plans don't work, but as far as I know, the same restriction doesn't exist going the other way. Your best bet would be to call your service provider (in your case, Bell?) and see if they have the ability to apply a restriction on their end. That's really the best chance you'd have for blocking them out.
Of course, if it's a serious enough issue, your company's CEO and management team could make it an offense that could result in the termination of a position as it technically could be considered theft of company assests.
