RE: Passwords

I have 3 Blackberries for my business and I am looking at ways to deter my staff from using them for personal use.  I have serveral questions.

1. Can Blackberry Messenger be password protected to prevent others from adding and deleting new contacts?

2. Can Messenger conversations be forwarded automatically to a third party?

3. Has anyone used any of the tracking software that logs SMS text conversations, e-mails etc.?

4. Can I have a password that does not allow a user to make changes such as adding and deleting conversations but still allow them to use the regular features?

I am not aware of third party app that would accomplish the same thing.

I will look around and ask, remember though that these would have to individually maintained.

What carrier are you with?






The web based server solution:



Here are two companies  that would work for you, It also appears the carriers are stepping up efforts

to provide this more control, I would check with your carrier

The easiest way if you have enough bb users and the funds it to purchase and Blackberry Enterprise Server for your email and you can setup IT policies to block certain services and abilities on the phone
