    Is there a way to make outbound calls without having to unlock the 8703e. Security policy locks device after 10 minutes and users are complaining about having to enter password while driving just to make an outbound call.

    Yes it is. I am in charge of the roll out and helping create the policies. Users are wanting there cell phones back because of the passwords

    I guess the answer is NO. if you are setting policy and you have to set it at 10 minutes, then only call they can make is a 911 call. anything else they have to unlock/password the phone just to dial. But if you can make that setting longer then that might be a doable compromise.

    Can you password protect just the email on a 8703e?

    Re: passwords

    I do not believe you can do that on any BB, its kind of all or nothing. I know there was a thread where someone was looking just to password a certain app and nothing is out there yet for that.

    Re: passwords

    Actually, in "General Settings" in Security under options, there is a setting to "Allow outgoing calls while locked"...

    This adds "Place Call" tab on the lock screen...

    You can set the "Allow outgoing calls while locked" to YES under the Security options Screen

    Re: passwords

    I am in options, security, general settings, and don't see that available. Do I need to change something in the security policy?

    It may be that this is only available on the 4.2 version of the device OS. What version are you running?
