Default Remote wipe

Please Login to Remove!

When a remote wipe is initiated does this also wipe any SD cards in the blackberry? If not is it possible to remotely wipe all information on a blackberry, including any expandable memory?

The remote wipe does not erase the SD card. To my knowledge, there is no way to do that.

As a security measure you can encrypt its contents (the SD card) via IT Policy and then lock the device with a password.
Without the password, the contents of the card wouldn't be accessible, even if removed from the device. (In theory.)
I never actually needed to do this.

Thanks for the input on this. I didn't think it was possible but my manager wanted me to "make sure"

Sweet avi btw. GO SOX!
