Default Blackberry Bluetooth / Security settings

Please Login to Remove!

Hi all...

What is the best configuration for security on a Blackberry in terms of best practicies. What about one with Bluetooth?

The reason I ask is because my 7100 came out of the box with the firewall disabled. Is this firewall for the wireless connection, for the bluetooth?

My instincts tell me I should turn it on, Change the Bluetooth device name to something obscure and make sure discovery is turned off. Also make sure the unit itself is password protected.

Anything else can you guys think of?
