Blackberry Forward SMS and Phone calls

Colin Smith Colin Smith Profile: Colin Smith

My new job will not let me connect my Andriod device to the Exchange servers so I can not get my calendar and email. Well I thought that is OK as long as I am on-call I will carry my company issued Blackberry and when I am not I will not, but I still want to make myself available if something comes up. To do this I found Advanced Forwarder. This app allows my blackberry to receive and forward all calls and texts that are sent to it. This allows me to only carry my personal phone and when I get called or paged from work it will come to my personal phone. I think I will find a way to synch my Calendar and then I will just not have my company email on my personal phone. That I am sure I could find a way around but I do not want company information on my phone without them knowing it and being able to enforce security policies. I think if I can get the calendar issue fixed I will be good to just carry my one phone when I am not on-call.

Check it out. hope that it helps.
