This rule specifies the maximum time (in minutes) of inactivity that is permitted between a BlackBerry® Smart Card Reader and a computer before the secure pairing information is deleted from the computer and the BlackBerry Smart Card Reader. The permitted range is 1 through 10,080 minutes.

Activity is any secure packet that is sent or received by a BlackBerry device and a BlackBerry Smart Card Reader over a Bluetooth® connection, other than the connection heartbeat packet.

Default value

The default value is a null value. The secure pairing information is not deleted from the computer.


If you configure this rule, the user cannot turn off this feature but can change the Inactivity Timeout field in the BlackBerry Smart Card Reader options on the computer to a lower value.

If you do not configure this rule, the user can change the Inactivity Timeout field to any value.

Minimum requirements

  • BlackBerry® Enterprise Server version 4.0 SP5
  • BlackBerry Smart Card Reader software version 1.5


The BlackBerry® Enterprise Server for Novell® GroupWise® does not support this rule.
