Restrict Outgoing Cellular Calls IT policy rule


This rule specifies whether a BlackBerry® device firewall blocks calls that a BlackBerry device user makes unless the phone numbers use a fixed dialing pattern.

This rule does not affect emergency calls.

Default value

The default value is a null value.


Type one or more fixed dialing patterns (for example, specific dialing numbers or a set of dialing numbers that have the same prefix) separated by a semi-colon (;).

To permit calls to numbers that are preceded by the number one, or a plus sign (+) and the number one only, type +1...;1...;r

To prevent calls that use a specific pattern, append r to the pattern. For example, type 011...r; to prevent calls that use the format 011xxxxxxxxxx.

To prevent all calls other than the calls you permit using this rule, type r in the pattern list. For example, to permit calls to the number 519-555-1234 only, type +15195551234;+15195551234;r.


A user must subscribe to caller ID to use this rule.

Minimum requirements

  • Java® based BlackBerry device
  • BlackBerry® Device Software 4.3
