Internet Content Filtering

Hello; I am looking at Purchasing a BB Curve from Verizon Wireless (all of our phones are with them now).

I need to figure out how to set-up Internet (WEB) content filtering without using BES.  We are not setup with Microsoft exchange server etc.  I will be the only employee with a Blackberry.

Can this be done without using BES?  I have searched HIGH and LOW and have found NOTHING that tells me if this can be acheived and how.

Verizon Wireless offers Web Content filtering but of course NOT for BBs.

HELP!!

Re: Internet Content Filtering

Hi and welcome to the forums,

I was unable to come up with any content filtering for a BIS device as well.

They are all designed for BES.

Sorry!

Re: Internet Content Filtering

Bifocals - thanks and I was afraid of that.

Is there anyway to shut down browser access on BIS??  So that I could just use the Curve for Voice and Email??

Hi,

I'm not sure you can delete the browser application without affect to other systems.

If you need to make sure you can't access the Internet through your browser

You can try OPTIONS _ ADVANCED OPTIONS_ APPLICATIONS_ BROWSER_ EDIT DEFAULT PERMISSIONS  and deny everything. This would stop the browser from access, but still allow you email.

 

Leave this open I'm sure someone will have a better solution, but that will do it if you need to immediatley stop access.

Re: Internet Content Filtering

Download the BlackBerry Professional Software (free subset of BES) and set yourself up an IT policy that restricts the browser.

Re: Internet Content Filtering

Hi D,

He doesnt want to go BES.

Is it possible to delete the browser without causing other problems?

Thanks!

Re: Internet Content Filtering

If I am reading this correctly if YOU are the only one using the blackberry why would you need to block the web? Just don't use it. I have at&t and so does my sister in law. But my father in law pays her bill so through the carrier he has blocked text messages as well as data access. Did you try contacting the carrier to see if this were an option for your BB?

Re: Internet Content Filtering

BIFOCALS -

I don't mind running BPS - can it be downloaded and used (free) to our office server and run without having the following??

MSOFT EXCHANGE and BES??

If I can just run BPS and set up an IT policy on filtering or whatever then I can go that route.

What do you think?  Basically I want the Browser service filtered if possible to avoid questionable sites otherwise I would like to have the other use of the browser.

Re: Internet Content Filtering

I'm not familiar with the software that D fisher described. Hold the post open and I'm sure other more experienced users can help you out.
