Default Re: Limit Funcionality of Z10 PC Connection

Connecting the Z10 appears to require administrator authority over the PCs in a domain environment, which I am reluctant to grant.

How can the Z10 be connected to a corporate PC without bestowing admin rites. Also, how can the user be limited to using the device in mass storage mode (rather than allowing BB Link software install etc).


Settings > Blackberry Link > Switch off BlackBerry Link

But be aware the phone maps its data on any Computer it gets connected to. Which means corporate data can get copied at a simple connect without any further user input.

Better get a written agreement of all users not plug their phone in any unknown power source / device.
