Your post did not contribute any solutions or related answers. Furthermore, it was pretty much a rephrasing of previous posts.

First, security isn't just about the hardware and the software. It's about you, too. And you, the generic you, are likely to be the security hole.
Great, if you'd just offer some real-world examples of that then we would be making progress.

What is your point? Sure, I may not know of EVERY security feature that is on my phone. Feel free to enlighten me.

I'm trying.

Make some for me too. I'd rather eat and let someone else answer the OP question on what is content protection. Or OP could look it up while we enjoy the snacks.
Pointless.

It's not as much paranois as it is principle. Call me crazy, but I value my privacy and intend to be aware of as many techniques to protect it as possible.

Those 2 block people from getting to your device unless you choose a simple password.
And Content protection will prevent people from physical removing the RAM and extracting information that.
Great info, thanks!

I looked at the firewall, but honestly I can't understand what real-world protection it would offer.

Unfortunately I'm not on BES anymore, and I'm not too keen on the idea of paying for it.

Maybe you should sit back and read the IT Policy reference guide for BES.
Would said guide still be a worthwhile read even though I do not have BES? Might be a bit irrelevant.

I've explained that a few times already. I don't 'need' that much security per say. It's a matter of perspective. Some might say that everyone who desires privacy 'needs' as much security as possible.

I'm not sure I understand the question. If you're asking what device I have - Bold 9700 as noted in OP and my postbit.

Depends on each specific incident. In general, I'm willing to give up functionality for privacy.

I bet his blackberry was on BES, with IT policy, etc, lot a good it does in that case.

A brain is the most important component in secuirty.

Can I have more popcorn? Mmmmm.
Just another repeat of the prior irrelevant nonsense.

I'm pretty sure vBulletin has an ignore function........ *heads off into User CP to alleviate the nonsense*
