Welcome to the Forums.


Blocking a specific site is possible if your on a corporate BES service . Doing it from the standard BB browser if on a BIS service is not something RIM offers. there may be a third party App that will do the block. If your talking about filtering a email from a site then read below.

I have searched extensively for internet content filtering on the consumer Blackberry (BIS), but thus far have come up empty except for jnetmobile.com. I chatted with the representative on the jnetmobile site and he basically said that they have their own BES server that you subscribe to, and that you can install the jnetmobile service on one Blackberry without disturbing other Blackberry devices on the same plan. If anybody uses or has used jnetmobile service, please let us know how it's going!

As of this writing, there are NO 3rd party applications that can do internet content filtering for a Blackberry (9630 in my case) on Verizon Wireless. Alternatively, it would be nice if Verizon and Blackberry could simply allow users to use openDNS or similar to block content. I wouldn't go so far as to say RIM has a responsibility to offer filtering functionality, but it's downright stupid not to because they will continue losing marketshare over this (see: the entire country of Indonesia).

In every single post on this topic we see the same ignorant and insolent posts such as:
"if your son is looking at porn it's your fault" (this thread is about protecting them)
"well just don't look at porn"
"porn's not that bad"

Don't bothering posting along those lines. For some it's a serious problem, and short of breaking contracts and getting new mobile devices (iphone, droid) there aren't a lot of options.

See:

pornharms_com
* please replace '_' with '.' (apparently I can't post links yet)


sooo... thank you moishek for starting a very relevant thread and asking a great question: has anyone tried jmobilenet?

You have to realize the blackberry was and still is intended to be business tool. Yes it has become a status symbol for kids and therefore the problem. Corporations have the ability to filter and block various web sites or at a minimum see where their users have been. Companies generally will not take lightly an employee who violates the various company policies. Not many take the chance. As for the kids, if enough parents ask either the carriers or even send comments to RIM, you might see some type of filter becoming available. As of January 11, RIM agreed to filter out porn sites in some countries. That requires the filter to be set at the server level and because all traffic is via at a minimum a carriers server it can be done. I hate to say it but if it is a problem with a kid then the parent must take responsibility and either remove the device or have the carrier block internet access. I know some may not like this stance but a parent without guts will end up with more problems than porn.

thanks for info iam148!

I called them today, and it sounds like a great option for any Blackberry user on BES. Verizon consumers using BIS will have to upgrade their plan with Verizon (from ~$30 to $45 per month in my case). Not a bad option if you absolutely need internet access on the Blackberry but want safer internet access.

@tsac: agreed, traditional Blackberry BES is a business tool, but now they market to kids and the general public. (e.g. Remember that recent Blackberry ad with the girl breakdancing?) I'm just saying that it's not unreasonable for Blackberry consumers to want some form of content filtering. RIM may be the most inflexible, but it looks like there aren't great content filtering solutions for iPhone or Android thus far either.

I ran across a post in another forum where someone suggested locking out the browser app. You can download programs like AppLock in the Blackberry App World to do this. I just tried that one and it does let you lock out specific applications, i.e. the browser. Now, the trick is that if you're trying to lock yourself out you'll need to have a trusted friend key in the password. It's a total internet blackout, but it could help those who don't want to give up the entire smartphone over this issue.

That's VERY expensive! Prohibitively so, in fact. A big fat fee up front, and then a monthly fee on top of that??!! You've got to be kidding me!
