Default Blocking outgoing calls

Please Login to Remove!

I am trying to find a way to block calls (both incoming and outgoing)from a 8703e. I have seen several blacklist/whitelist programs for inbound, but nothing that addresses outbound.

We have several users at my company, that for various reasons, we don't want to get rid of, but they also cannot be trusted with the cell phone. We are on Cbeyond service and they have said there is no way for them to block phone calls. I need the users to be able to get and send email and use GPS navigation software that we have loaded.

We do have a BES, but I don't think that matters in this case.

Anyone have any ideas?

Thanks in advance,

Why not just push an IT policy out to those users blocking use of the phone? I'm not a BES admin but I know this is quite simple to do.

I'm not a BES admin either. I will talk with our IT guy and see if he knows how to do this.

Thanks,

Through IT Policy you can disable the phone. Once the policy is applied you can only make 911 calls.

IT policy to turn off the phone worked.

Thanks for the help.
