Content Protection of Contact List IT policy rule

Description

This rule specifies whether a user can choose to encrypt the contact list on a BlackBerry® device when content protection is turned on.

The previous name of this rule was Force Include Address Book In Content Protection.

Default value

The default value is Allowed. A user can choose to either exclude the contact list from content protection or include it in content protection.

Usage

For BlackBerry devices that are running BlackBerry® Device Software version 5.0 and later, change this rule to Disallowed to turn off the option. The contact list is not content-protected, and the user cannot change this setting on the BlackBerry device.

BlackBerry devices that are running BlackBerry Device Software versions that are earlier than version 5.0 process the Disallowed setting in the same way that they process the Required setting.

If the contact list is content-protected, when the BlackBerry device is locked, the BlackBerry device does not permit call display and does not share contacts over a Bluetooth connection.

If the contact list is not content-protected, when the BlackBerry device is locked, the BlackBerry device permits call display and can share contacts over a Bluetooth connection.

Minimum requirements

  • Java® based BlackBerry device
  • BlackBerry® Application Suite version 1.0
  • BlackBerry Device Software version 4.2
  • BlackBerry® Enterprise Server version 4.0 SP6
