blocking internet access for apps and read only permission

Hello, I was just wondering if there is anyway to block Internet access for an app? And if there is such a setting to allow read only access to files/text/emails for app?

Thank you

Unfortunately, you can't do that for specific applications.

You shouldn't have any issue with BlackBerry apps trying to change your contacts, etc., that you need NOT to worry about.
