    As I looked more, its called Activate Device Administrator or Exchange Device Administrator

    ITs on newer Exchange servers and if they've enabled it, you've got to accept it. I know I had tried denying and never got connect. I hit accept, and I get email. simple as that.

    I would say, that I'd never allow my IT folks to touch my phone. Its a "give me the settings and I'll do it myself." kinda thing.
    Don't get your tightie whities in a bunch if you don't like my humor or get offended when I skip putting smiley faces all over. IF you cannot handle online comments and get bent out of shape, go home.

    nikecar, yup that would be it. The nuke option I like to call it. I actually did set it up myself wi the droid account tool as a corporate account as I recall.

    The big problem here for me is proving that the phone was wiped by them. Yes I'm sure they have a log of killing the exchange account, and possibly of the phone being wiped. Heck it might of been an after thought or they didn't know what they were doing. Honestly the company was unorganized enough that there was no IT, or verified HR or established leadership, but I digress.

    Still if I was to bring this to court, or bring it up with the company directly and speak of legal action, what proof can I have? I'm just stuck.

    Kat, thanks for your support man. Hoping for the best out of all of this.

    is there any way to block/disable this ability? rooted/non-rooted? I'm being pressured to use my personal device for corporate email but absolutely refuse to give corporate the ability to nuke my phone for any reason. i have that myself if i need it, but corporate has no business whatsoever having that access to a personal device.

    No way to avoid it afaik. It's a slippery slope they're going down, so they'll have something to protect themselves. For you, I would say that the control you'll be handing over to them is excessive and I wouldn't do it. I experienced this once in my life...never again.

    Hey, I'm pulling for you, but if you're still with them don't lose your job over it. Best of luck!

    i'm currently pushing back with having no problem whatsoever with them having the ability to encrypt/wipe their own data (write their own app for the email client if needs be; they have devs on staff), but unless they back off on the phone wide privileges, i refuse to access email through the ActiveSync... may cost me my job... :-(

    they didn't like my answer of accessing via the web browser because
    #1: i have to actively check for new messages rather than be automatically alerted
    #2: they can't wipe the corporate data from the cache if the phone is lost
    #3: the browser lets me save my password
