    kid-proof pearl internet access with tmobile

    Advertisement



    I would like to set up a password for access, remove or disable the browser on the bb 8100 pearl. On my previous bb 7105t I just removed a module and disabled it without messing up email or google map 3rd party application. Removing modules on the handset is not an option any longer. The so-called Web Guard through the tmobile site is completely ineffective. Any ideas.

    hook it up to desktop manager and go to app loader, just uncheck Browser and its gone. no way to get it back unless its loaded back on by checking it again. this will not effect email or google maps

    hope thats what your looking for.

    I thought the exact same thing, however on mine the browser is greyed out and you cannot change it to remove?

    go to
    options>advanced options>service highlight the browser one and hit menu then delete.
    poof no browser

    still getting email as well
    google maps too!

    Is "highlight browser icon - hit menu - hide application" not a viable option ?

    kayos that would work too, as long as the child doesnt know how to login to the BIS account and send service books lol. but that could basically be the password for access to the internet?

    don't give them the password to the account, and this way you can't use the "setup internet email" from the phone, it leaves too.
    the only way back is log onto tmo website.

    Some time it does, some time not. Did you wait for the message? and reboot afterward?

    Yup after HRT and a batt pull it came back, but with a normal batt pull it won't.
    PS is there a limit on how many times tmobile will let me resend svc books?
