Disable Wireless Bulk Loads IT policy rule


This rule specifies whether wireless data synchronization during activation or as part of a backup and restore operation is turned off.

Default value

The default value is False.


Change this rule to True to minimize wireless data transfers when activating or updating a BlackBerry® device. A BlackBerry device must be physically connected to a computer before the data transfer starts.

If a BlackBerry device is disconnected from the computer during the initial data transfer, the BlackBerry® Desktop Software sends the remaining data over the wireless network.

Minimum requirements

  • C++-based BlackBerry® device that is running BlackBerry® Device Software version 2.7
  • Java® based BlackBerry device that is running BlackBerry Device Software version 4.0
  • BlackBerry® Connect™ version 4.0 (internal)
  • BlackBerry® Enterprise Server version 4.0


The BlackBerry® Enterprise Server for Novell® GroupWise® supports this rule only for Java based BlackBerry devices that are running BlackBerry Device Software versions 4.0 or later.
