Default MDS and policy's

Please Login to Remove!

I'm wondering if there is a way that you can allow MDS to certain handhelds only?

I see a section in the policies that relates to MDS, but not sure specifically how to disable MDS to some handhelds, and not others.

The easiest way would be to have two separate IT policies on your BES, one for users who need MDS and one for users who do not have MDS enabled.

You can disable MDS under the MDS Policies Group.

Thanks, I was planning on the two policies, just wasn't sure exactly "how" to disable MDS. There is no "MDS Policy" group listed in my BES policies. There aer several MDS related items, but no "Allow MDS" - ture / false... ??

Hmm, which version BES are you using? Sorry, I'm not very familiar with older versions.

4.1 has the MDS Policy Group where you can set Disable MDS Runtime Environment to True.

In 4.1 there is also a Browser policy group where you can disable the MDS Browser. Doing that along with disabling 3rd party application installs should work. I know the 3rd party rule was in older versions, not sure about the Browser options.

Hope this helps.

Hey Jim, are you talking about Mobile Data Service - the one associated with web sites browsing using the BlackBerry Browser? If yes, just disable MDS at the user-level.

Thats the one. And I guess that would work, disabling it at the user level... Except now I'll have to talk about 60 remote users through the disabling process! LOL

Yeah Jim, just like what CanuckBB said... disable at user-level on BES - use the BlackBerry Manager to do it.
