Default Urgent Problem

Please Login to Remove!

We have a client who requires outgoing calls to be barred (local, international pretty much all over the world) but not incoming calls via an IT policy on the BES.

Please can someone reply and advise.

Thanx in advance for any help.

I believe that if you set the IT policy under the Global Items group, Allow Phone to False, that will give your client what they want.

According to RIM, the phone icon is still visible, but the user can then only make Emergency Calls. Hopefully your client doesn't mind the Emergency Call provision. As long as their provider account includes a phone provision, they should still be able to receive incoming phone calls.

The FCC requires that wireless phones be able to make emergency calls, so that can't be turned off.
