    Our company is looking to switch to MobileIron to maintain and provision iPhones. Is anyone out there using it and if so, can you share any experiences with it?
    I have only read the client app reviews on the app store that complain about location services draining the battery.

    We use MobileIron at my company also (migrated to it about 6 months ago.) I have not noticed any battery drain. Overall the app works well and does what it's supposed to.

    Except... about once a month I'll notice mail isn't coming in and will have to reboot my phone to reset the app.

    We use MobileIron to provision the mail app for our exchange server and to provide the key to the production wifi network. Once configured, we can delete the MobileIron app itself.

    Works just fine.

    remove app - unenroll device?

    Hi, great info on this thread. Xraydoc confirm that if you remove the mobileiron app that you still receive corporate email. Does this also mean the admin can't detect my device as jailbroken?

    Thanks

    It depends on how your admins deploy it. The way we have ours deployed, removing the app would prevent you from getting corporate email.

    When the MobileIron app is removed from a device, we have it configured to also remove the email profile that it put in when the MobileIron app was installed.

    If the employee was clever enough to jot the email profile settings down, and tries to recreate the profile after MobileIron is uninstalled, then the Sentry server (which is a server that's between the devices and the email server) will block the device.

    Regarding jailbreaking, as far as I know, if you got an "email only" connection working, your admins wouldn't be able to tell if you were jailbroken or not. I think it requires an app like MobileIron to be on the device.
