Default Enable "Disable Password"

Please Login to Remove!

Macos 10.4.11 and 7290 - recently bought second hand 7290 to give me handsfree Bluetooth phone reception in the car - which has Bluetooth setup.

7290 has obviously been used in corporate setup as it has a policy locked into it, which requires password input to make calls that times out after 2 minutes. Can't change the timeout interval and Disable Password setting is blanked out - can I erase the policy and/or enable Disable Password via a Mac application or do I have to hunt round for a PC and reinstall the 7290 OS?

I'd probably be tempted to have speech recognition as well so that I can make outgoing calls - any decent software that I can install via the Mac?

You need a Windows PC in order to push a blank IT policy to the device.
It can't be done from Mac OSX.

Thanks for that - what I expected - although I assume I could just wipe the device and install the OS from scratch if I had access to a PC - or does a server-imposed policy prevent that?

Would any speech recognition app also have to come via a PC?

We have a house full of Macs - no Windows environment on any of them - and I can't off-hand think of an acquaintance with a Wintel box.

No, wiping the OS and re-installing will NOT get rid of an IT Policy.

Thanks for that as well - precisely answers my question - and confirms that the policy is imposed at a low level. Looks as though I may have to find a PC.
