Default any idea how to remove phone application

Please Login to Remove!

Hello all well again i need some help, when we first got our old blackberry's 3 yrs ago we came here and posted a question about removing the phone application from the units so that it could not be used. We are using them in a delivery application loaded with our software and do not want drivers to be able to make phone calls or to receive them. We got that figured out with some help from everyone here but now have upgraded to new 8703e and need to do the same thing, the prevouis way will not work any one have any ideas ????

thanks all

If you're using a BES, you can disable the phone via the IT Policy.....
No longer a BES Admin, but it was fun while it lasted!

You can also have the service provider (at least with T-Mobile) make the accounts "Voice barred". you can't completely remove the phone application on 8700 or newer models like you could the 72xx servies for instance because of a new regulation that requires all cell phone devices to be able to call 911.

i don't know if that is a new regulation but it has been something enforced in other countries for some time.

you could how ever hide the icon on the phone, bar the phone from making calls and also IT policy bar it .
