I have a BB that uses a BES for email at work.  My question is, does the browser go through the work server or service provider server?  I want to be able to look for jobs while I am traveling but do not want work to find out.

Re: Browser

Morally I don't like the idea of using your company hardware to look for a job elsewhere.

to answer your question, it depends. When you are in the Browser application, in the options you have a choice between several browsers.
one is called the Blackberry browser. It goes through the BES so the IT of your company can know what sites you are browsing.
If you have another browser, it should use the direct network of your carrier. Shouldn't be accessible by the IT of your company.
