    Operating system security

    Advertisement



    Hi. Apologies for the basic question but I have a Blackberry 7730 which I intend to use only as a phone. I am using Blackberry 4.0.2 system software from RIM and an operating system for Australia from Optus. Can I install a basic or generic operating system which will give me more control over the security settings than I am allowed by the Optus system? For instance, under my existing system, I cannot change the 2 minute security timeout - I do not have the required permissions.

    Any guidance appreciated. Cheers, Pat.

    Was this device purchased used. It sounds like there is an IT policy that is forcing your security timeout. There is a process for replacing the policy somewhere. I'm mobile but I'll try to find it later when I can get on the PC.

    Brilliant! Just what I needed. Worked perfectly. Thanks Doughdaddy and Rcbjr. Yes, I should have mentioned the device was pre-used, and thus had an existing IT policy. And apologies for not finding that link in my searches - I probably didn't use the correct search terms.

    Cheers, Pat

    The PinStack Forums Software Search Engine is a difficult one. Yes we hope you will use that feature, but don't ever hesitate to ask the question.
