    IT Policy for calls/SMS

    Advertisement



    Hi all,

    Had this posted in the General section, but I've had an idea....

    A BB user will be taking his BB over seas (I'm in UK and he's going to Europe).

    He doesnt want to incurr roaming charges for calls and SMS to him while he's away, but still wants his emails.

    Is there anything I could do with IT policies to prevent calls ans SMS from going to the device?

    Thanks.

    To block incoming text, or SMS, messages, set the Firewall Block Incoming Messages IT policy rule in the Security Policy Group.

    To block phone usage go to Global Items in the IT Policy rule and set allow phone to False.

    These may be of some assistance.

    Hi Mark,

    Got that, thanks. This will disable the SMS facility.

    The phone bit, I need it to stop incoming calls. Is there a way to allow outgoing calls though?

    Thanks.

    As far as I know there is only the option to disable the phone completely or enable it. I will keep looking though.

    See if the user can go into the Call log and then bring up the Menu and go to Options and click on call Barring. IF they are able to access this feature they can disable incoming calls when roaming directly from the device itself.

    Thanks guys!

    With a combination of the IT policy and the manual setup, we should be abot there.

    Would be nice to be able to do the barring from an IT policy though.

    Thanks again...

    Yeah it doesn't look like there is anything in the policy for call barring
