    Global Theme Setup

    Advertisement



    Hey Guys

    Management have decided that they want all out blackberry users to have the same theme and wallpaper (the company logo), and make them unable to change the appearence. They've also decided they want everyone to have the same shortcut key configuration.

    I've spent days trawling through the different IT Policy and Software Configuration settings to no avail.

    Does anyone have any idea if this is possible?

    We're running RIM Blackberry Manager V 4.1.0.38

    Most of our BB's will be Curves running OS 4.2

    Regards

    Greg

    We have considered the same here. Luckily it was shot down due to some devices being owned by users not the firm. Good luck.

    not sure about IT policys big hand and the global convenience key set up, but here's my take on the theme, since that's what i do

    the home screen (where the icons would be) isn't lockable, by a user or theme builder...but the lock screen is. Once the theme is loaded on to the bb, the lockscreen cannot be altered. that's where you would put your company logo

    What is the reasoning behind the company logo? Do "they" just want everyone to be the same? Other than the user, times will be few and far between that anyone else sees that much of the device.

    i believe you can...

    -remove all themes except the base theme dimension zen or regular. THen load your custom theme.
    -use desktop manager to basically block, usb mode, ota,

    i believe you might be able to force device settings and synchronize them on bes.. that way they can make a change and periodically bes will force out the settings instead of saving them... example.. when you wipe your blackberry and re-activate, all your settings are pushed to the phone. find a way to stop the syncrho and just the push.

    Most of the staff who have blackberrys will either be trainers or consultants for our product (which has a blackberry client), or be demoing it.

    The Directors think it would be more professional if all these had out logo as the wallpaper, rather than a picture of their pet dog (as the curves have built in cameras I wouldn't be surprised if people did this).

    I would suggest designing an adhesive to place on the company Berry's. (Maybe around the screen or on the battery cover)
