Last night, I got awake at 2 AM and started playing with the new Tour (too much caffeine last night). Anyway, somewhere in the middle of messing with Options>Security Setting>Application Permissions, I wound up where the Tour said I had to reboot to save the changes, and I couldn't get out of it - so I let it reboot.
I'm guessing I edited the Default Permissions - but I don't know which one(s). Is there a way to return the default permissions to my original Sprint factory state? The Tour is just my personal phone using BIS, but I don't want to allow anything more than necessary.
Solved! Go to Solution.

It all depends which application you have changed settings for. If you remeber the applications you modified you can go back in and from the menu choose "Apply Defaults". You will have to do this individually for every application you modified. I would not worry about it. If you have not made that many modifications you have nothing to worry about. If there any wrong settings on any applications you will see when you try to use them.

Thanks for the info. I decided to wipe the phone and then just reinstall my contacts and messages from a previous partial backup. I hope the settings have returned to their defaults. Now I've got to get my gmail and hotmail icons back on the home screen. I'm sure I'll find the answer somewhere on this forum!

After a wipe, these two steps are critical:
1) Register HRT
2) Service Books (to get your email icons back):
If things still do not return to normal (for instance, the permissions remain messed up), you can try restoring your BB to true factory fresh condition (for the OS level that it has installed):
That information is written regarding removing an IT Policy from the BB, but will effect restoring to factory fresh -- and, as such, might apply in your situation. Be sure to do the two steps above after this as well.
Good luck and let us know!
