Question want some extra security. what about IT policies??

Please Login to Remove!

Hi, I have a pearl 8100 and a regular data plan, (no BES or BIS). I would like to have more protection for my cellphone and the info that i store.
I read something about IT policies locking a blackberry to a specific sim.
Could i create my own IT policies without a BIS or BES to lock my phone to my sim??
I just want to experiment and learn more about bb on the process

An IT Policy is a function of BES.

Enable content protection and password protech the device. Your information will be safe (except media card). If you want more protection search for Robo-block.

You can enable Media Card encryption if you have a Media Card, Options -> Media Card.

But that won't encrypt the content that is already on the card.

Device password is definitely a must.

Make sure you sync and/or backup regularly as well.

Couldn't he just cut everything from his Media Card to Desktop, enable the Media Card encryption and paste it back in there? (Curious, I didn't know it won't encrypt what's on it already.)
