Default what are key stores ?

Please Login to Remove!

how do they pertain to the non-business oriented user ?

just want to know if i need to keep the feature enabled, every time i plug my 8310 into my pc and start dm, it asks me for the password. when i try to change the setting in options on the device to 'off' it asks for a password, which i never set.

Or possibly no one knows the answer to your question.

Have you tried searching the forums and/or Google for "key stores"? That might help you also.

Worthless search. Yea, lol, I didn't learn heck of a lot from it, either.

But it has to do with the security of the device.

I believe that if your company is using certificates (as mine does) to control access to certain of their web sites, you can download those certificates to your BB and also access them from there...not 100% sure that is right, but from the description that's what I thought it would do.

Is your BB password protected or on a BES with password required? That would be why a PW is forced at DM connection.
