Default Security and Privacy on BlackBerry...

Please Login to Remove!

Hello everyone,

Over the past few days I have been researching the security and privacy of my BlackBerry (Bold 9700) with the intention of improving it. Most of the information I have found covers very obvious and basic steps that I've already taken such as disabling GPS and Bluetooth, enabling encryption and setting a password. About half of the information I found specifically relating to BlackBerry security was actually to do with the measures taken for Obama's phone. I did find out that Obama uses SecurVoice which appears to be a solid solution. Problem is, it's expensive and not even remotely targeted for the average consumer. (More towards entire IT departments which use BES)

Anyway, I figured some of the people on this forum might be able to shed some light on this for me.

What are the most important BlackBerry security/privacy measures that one should take?

What advice do you have for securing a BlackBerry?

How do you ensure the privacy of your calls, texts and emails?

Thanks in advance,
