KB14202 - How to remove an IT policy from a BlackBerry smartphone


Environment

  • BlackBerry Desktop Software version 4.7 to 5.0
  • BlackBerry Smartphone Software version 4.0 to 4.7
  • BlackBerry Enterprise Server version 4.1 for Microsoft® Exchange



Overview

If a BlackBerry smartphone user is being removed from a BlackBerry Enterprise Server, the BlackBerry smartphone user or the system administrator may wish to remove the IT Policy that has been associated with the BlackBerry smartphone.



Resolution

To remove an IT Policy from a BlackBerry smartphone, please choose one of the following methods:
Method 1
Create and assign a blank IT Policy to the BlackBerry smartphone user account prior to removing the account from the BlackBerry Enterprise Server.
Resolution 1
To create and assign a blank IT Policy to the BlackBerry smartphone user account, please refer to article KB05106.

  4. Select Erase Data and Disable Handheld.
Note: To create a blank IT Policy, please refer to article KB05106.

Use the Loader.exe application bundled with BlackBerry Desktop Manager 4.7 to 5.0.
Note: This method can only be used on a BlackBerry smartphone running BlackBerry Device Software 4.3 to 4.7.1

  4. Type loader.exe /resettofactory.
Note: This is an alternate method for removing an IT Policy from a BlackBerry smartphone running BlackBerry Device Software 4.3 to 4.7.1 and should be used only if the BlackBerry smartphone user cannot contact the system administrator.



Additional Information

Although a blank IT Policy will be ideal in most cases there are some minor changes that also get reset when the Remote Wipe Reset to Factory Defaults option is used.
With the release of BlackBerry Enterprise Server software version 4.1 SP4 and BlackBerry Device Software 4.2.2, the Remote Wipe Reset to Factory Defaults IT policy rule allows administrators to remove the IT policy from a BlackBerry smartphone and restore all factory default settings.
When a system administrator applies the Remote Wipe Reset to Factory Defaults IT Policy rule and then applies the Erase Data and Disable Handheld command to a BlackBerry smartphone user account, the following occurs on the BlackBerry smartphone:
  • All data is erased
  • All third-party applications are removed
  • The IT policy is removed
  • Factory default settings are implemented

Do these rules apply to BES 5.x? I'm interested in making a new IT policy to perform the /resettofactory command over the air.
