I understand what you are talking about.
I just got distracted and slowed down responding to THIS post. It just looked like I was responding to you because my response was so delayed.
Your scenario is different. But I have had the same issue with a BES. I mean, if I set it to "Kill" as the admin and the phone has been off for three days, do i connect the new blackberry they bought and nullify the kill? Or do i wait for it to set?
With EAS, It is different because you don't supply a password to allow someone to connect. They are enabled are disabled and use their Network info to connect. I think as the admin, you just have to have the responsibility to turn it off when someone tries to reconnect via their backup....or just setting up a new connection. And yes, sometimes the user will have to wait until after the weekend so the Kill can be disabled. And sometimes we have to have that little talk about taking care of your things too and not leaving them in a cab. If there is really a reason to "kill", yes, it might be a little uncomfortable before things get back to normal.
If there is an admin who thinks they are allowed to kill people's devices for sport, chances are they are ready to "retire" from the profession. There are lots of things Admins CAN do. Actually DOING them is much different. As I have said to users, "You either trust me or you fire me. If you don't trust me, you can't afford for me to be able to do the things I can do."
