Default Prefered Internet Browser Policy ?

Please Login to Remove!

Is there an option within the POLICY to state which Browser is default? i.e I want the Internet Browser as Default for users rather than the Blackberry Browser and don't want to change all users individually.

Also

Is there an option in the POLICY to state which time to use, i.e if I wanted users to use the Network time rather than the Blackberry time?

Thank you in advance guys

Check out the BES IT Policy Reference Guide ... I think "Default Browser Config UID" will do this for you.

There is no IT Policy to do this. You realize:

Network Time = Carrier Time
BlackBerry Time = RIM Time (not the HH device itself)

Yes, I knew about the times and I have already tried the UID, that is just for monitoring purposes.

Any more thoughts?

I am guessing and testing"
Under SERVICE EXCLUSIVITY GROUP ALLOW OTHER BROWSER SERVICES, by default this is set to TRUE. If I set this to FALSE then all Internet traffic would be forced via the internal Internet Browsing system.

Default Try this it may be what you are looking for...

Interesting and frequently accessed article on the BlackBerry section of Experts-Exchange I would like to highlight here.

This article has to do with how to block BlackBerry Enterprise Server users from accessing the Internet with the BlackBerry browser.

"Is there a way (Policy) to block BlackBerry users (from) using the BlackBerry browser from the handheld?' asks nourben.

Well, nourben, there sure is. As a matter of fact, the answer Experts-Exchange BlackBerry expert garycutri supplied is the one you accepted.
"Ok, I have just tested and confirmed the settings for BES 4.0.5," garycutri writes. "Set your IT Policy to the following:

Allow Browser = FALSE (This removed the default Browser being BlackBerry Browser)
Enable WAP Config = TRUE (Or leave it unselected as TRUE is the default)

"These settings will take up to 10 minutes to transfer to the devices," garycutri points out.

He quickly comes back with another post adding to those instructions:


"Also ensure you remove the 'Allow IBS Browser = FALSE' policy."
