Default Encryption and Bluetooth

Please Login to Remove!

Within "Options>Security Options" there is a setting for Encryption. By default on my Bold 9650 it is set to disabled. When I enabled this feature, the Bluetooth data transfer (contacts) between my BB and my BMW car phone was stopped. I guess my car's phone does not accommodate encryption. So I disabled encryption since this phone functionality is important to me. All is now back to normal.

I understand Password Keeper uses AES encryption. Is Password Keeper encryption also turned off when I have BB encryption disabled as stated above, or does that only affect communications?
