I searched the forums, but no dice. I'm trying to disable txt msgs via it policy; however I have found out how stop outbound, but cannot stop inbound. Does this have to be done via the provider side?

I would imagine this can be done via policy. I know it can be blocked by the carrier!

I'm sure it can, but I figured with a policy I can turn it on and off as needed.

First, get a copy of the BlackBerry Policy Reference Guide ... i keep it bookmarked as the link gets updated when RIM publishes updates to it. That way you've always got the most current version.

Look at page 55 ... Device Only Items > Allow SMS IT
and page 111 Security policy group > Firewall Block Incoming Messages IT policy rule

Sorry for digging up an old thread but i need to ask a question in regards to this.

Will a carrier still charge a user if policy is enforced on a group?

If you block it via a policy, it is still routed through the carrier, and therefore considered delivered. So yes it would still be charged.
