Re: Show owners name on phone screen

Hello,

First, you enter the owner information into the BB configuration. Then, you assign a device lock password (be very careful with this!!). Then you lock the BB with the password lock. Only then will the owner information display on the screen. The keyboard only lock does not display the owner information.

Good luck!
