Parental Controls
Parental Controls are designed to help
you have more control over how the features
of the BlackBerry® smartphone are used.
With Parental Controls you can block content,
turn features on or off, and decide what types of
communication are available.
When you turn on Parental Controls, a four-digit PIN is
required to change the allowed services, which prevents
children or other parties from changing the settings.
