Default Stop email temporarily

Please Login to Remove!

If I want to stop email coming to my BB temporarily, is there a simple way, or do I go through the desktop program and with each filter say "do not forward"

At your BIS site, you would do that, if you are a BIS account.

I use uscellular.blackberry.com. I have a lot of filters, so I guess I have to just go through each and say do not forward. I was hoping there was one master way to stop it.

You can turn off all data to the BB, and still get phone service.

Options > Mobile Network > Data Services = OFF.

I'd recommend just setting the BB to a profile that doesn't notify you of incoming email unless there's a really compelling reason to actually stop/pause email delivery.

I will be out of the country for 15 days not getting BB service. I don't want to come back to 1000 emails. That's why I want to stop it completely until I can get my email back under control.

Set not to forward on the BIS account or delete it temporarily and re-add upon return.
