I suspect that this is related to the default policy that has been implemented.
My question is what do we need to set in the policy to enable the lost functionality.
Also, how do we enable Bluetooth synch for the 8700 handhelds?
Thanks for your help.
I can help a little... BB Browser is a new feature to 4.0 that allows you to surf through your BES instead of through the provider. But since BB's are so slow data-wise, its not like your users have been racking up a bill with the provider from surfing on their network... But that's what it is...
You should be able to enable Bluetooth on the handheld, in Options or Settings somewhere. If you were trying to actually sync the PIM and email via bluetooth, I don't think that functionality exists. Bluetooth is too slow to handle data effectively. It's only really useful for wireless headsets.
I might be wrong.
