Default Exchange & Android

Here is my dilema...our company has some strict security policies when our phones are connected to the exchange servers. I want no lock pin.

Option 1 - bypass security without root somehow...I tried unsuccessfully several methods I found online

Option 2 - use 3rd party apps for Mail, Contacts, and Calendar.

I am working on Option 2 as I have not been able to figure out Option 1...if anyone has any ideas please send them over!

I downloaded Touchdown and this seems to be the closest to what I want...I have 2 exchange accounts and 1 gmail account. I want my 2 exhange accounts to be in 1 mail app, and my gmail to be in its own app. I want all 3 calendars in 1 calendar app. Touchdown does separate my exchange accounts however I cannot import my gmail calendar into the calendar App. Plus its $20.

I have Aqua Mail installed and that is doing well for email but I dont have contacts and no calendar. I have not been able to find any calendar app that allows for the access of my exchange calendar without it being connected to the phone prior to adding the app. Basically all apps do at best is as follows: SYNCS WITH GOOGLE CALENDAR AND EXCHANGE [ VIA THE LOCAL ANDROID CALENDAR APP ]

Anyone know of any apps that may suit my needs? Or if Option 1 is possible and working then I would def give that a go and use native apps for everything.

Thanks in advance.

Try loking at Nine Mail. It might be your Option 1 as it has application level security and it makes your exchange calendar appear as native android calendar.

I thought this was the ticket after setting up my first account and somehow bypassing the pin lock, but when I went to configure my second account...I was not able to go around entering a new pin before adding the account. It seems like this is acting the same way as the stock app.

Found enhanced email...found the 7 day trial and so far so good...i get all my e-mail from my 2 exchange accounts in 1 place, and the calendars integrated into the stock calendar app so they are combined with my google calendar as well all in 1 place....and NO PIN LOCK! Now...do I want it for $10? probably
