Do you use the Blackberry firewall?

Everyone does. You used to be able to turn it off, but in the later OS builds it is on and not configurable.

You can reset the settings and edit default permissions though. Trackwheel (yuk) at the firewall enabled option.

Mine shipped off. Doesn't seem like the BB would need one anyway?

Mine is Disabled and always has been. Without any information on how to set it up, I haven't felt comfortable turning it on. It came disabled in 8700/4.1.0.194 and when I loaded 8700/4.1.0.286 it didn't change.

Hope this helps.

I can't imagine a lot of ports being open in the first place!

But its more than just a port stopping app, it alows you to stop applications from being able to inject keyboard commands into others etc. Stoping any potential virus/malware/spyware kindof thing. Probably no need for it just yet, but 1 day inevitably ther will be.
