Question limiting Bluetooth on handhelds

Please Login to Remove!

Is there a way through Policy that I can limit certain users from not using the bluetooth feature on some phones?

3.6 SP4 has the Bluetooth subset in the Policy settings. You may want to upgrade your server.

We have decided to skip the SP4 upgrade and go right to v4.0. Looking through the ITPolicy PDF, I do not see anything for Bluetooth or how to disallow it.

ANy insight would be appreciated....

There's an entire section called 'Bluetooth Policy Group' in the IT Policy manager.

- Disable Bluetooth
- Disable Pairing
- Disable Headset Profile
- Disable Handsfree Profile
- Disable Serial Port Profile
