Re: How to lock off BB10 device in C

If you posted it only a few hours ago, I'm afraid you're being impatient. Most of the people here answering are volunteers, just other developers who choose to share their time trying to assist others. Expecting very fast replies (less than a day or two) isn't wise...

As for the question, I'm not aware of any API that would let you do that, so I believe the answer is "you cannot". At least for now. If you need this, consider filing a "feature request" in the Developer Issue Tracker, a link to which you can find at the bottom of http://developer.blackberry.com

(If your original query was in another thread, would you mind posting a link to this thread, in that thread, so that people won't try to answer the same thing in two different places? Thanks!)
