Thumbs down Placing Call from a locked BB

Please Login to Remove!


how is it possible to place a call when the device is locked. I found in the Security Section a policys which allows this. But I see no change in a changed behavior on my device.

You will have to do this while it is unlocked (and assuming you do not have an IT policy that prohibits it). Under Options, Security, General Settings, change the permission to allow phone calls while locked.
Life is what you make it.
