I believe all of this can be accomplished if the Blackberry is on a BES.

Curious why you are asking.....?

Well, if it is your spouse or child, or YOUR company-owned device, ask them, or ask to see it. If they say no, you have bigger problems that finding a spy software.

Otherwise, it's none of your business.

Same question was posted a while back with some dude wanting to spy on his wife.

If it's your son and you pay the bills then take it and look through it. Or axe the data plan and call the provider to block SMS on the device

Fred, I can comment on this only because I have been in a similar situation with my son. It wasn't a blackberry, but same deal.

If he lives under your roof and you are providing food and shelter for him, you (and your spouse) can set the "principles" of what behavior is acceptable or not, be it drugs, alcohol, computer porn or whatever the issue might be. And, you can give him choices that he can choose to make, and then he can deal with the consequences of his (acceptable or unacceptable) behavior you set forth.

PM if you want.

Default yes there is and it is dangerous to anyone with private data on their blackberry

its called flexispsy, it logs all data (sms/email/webbrowsing) and had the ability to turn on the microphone remotely to listen in without the user making a phone call. At the moment there is no way to prevent someone picking up your phone when it is unlocked and within 15 mins they can download the spy software that thereafter is nearly undetectable. Since I have a great deal of private data that in the wrong hands could wreak havoc, join me in getting Blackberry to at least provide a mechanism to have a separate password required to load applications.

Why would you need to have a "separate password required to load applications"? Why not just your regular password? Don't tell anyone what it is! There's a setting on the BES for that, but without a BES I don't know how to do it. There's also another IT setting that would be useful in this situation which is that you can have the phone blink red anytime the mic is on. It makes it easy to detect if there's spy software turning on the mic remotely when you aren't on a call.
