New in this release
Introducing BlackBerry 10 OS version 10.2.1
This software update introduces great new features to help you be more productive, and more in control. Discover more
ways to prioritize your communications, read web content offline, customize menus, download Android apps, and monitor
the battery power level so you can be more productive for longer.
BlackBerry Hub
The BlackBerry Hub now features customizable notifications, the ability to filter the message list using a pinch gesture, and
the ability to compose messages in plain text or rich text.
BlackBerry Keyboard
A floating action bar above the keyboard helps you easily complete or cancel common actions.
Calendar
You can view a specific date in the calendar by tapping the top of the screen and selecting a date. You can use existing
calendar information to create follow-up meetings, and with the Cisco WebEx Meetings app installed, you can schedule
WebEx meetings.
Contacts
When you save a contact, you can select the account that you want to save it to, and you can move contacts between
accounts. You can create groups within your contacts so that you can easily send messages to everyone in the group, set
up meetings, and share files. For each of your contacts, you can set unique notifications for phone calls and different types
of messages, including BBM, email, text, and other social feeds.

to the left. Slide your finger to the right to decline a call. You can assign speed dial keys to your contacts and call them
directly from the home screen, and you can make calls by typing the contact's name.
BlackBerry Browser
Save a webpage to your device so that you can read it at a later time, whether you are connected to a network or not. You
can also go to your favorite Android app website and download apps to your device. If you use BlackBerry Balance, apps
are downloaded to your personal space and can’t access the data in your work space. Download apps that you trust. Your
device doesn’t check the integrity of the APK files that you download.
Settings
You can set up your device to use a picture password instead of a traditional password. You can specify which options
appear in the Quick Settings menu that appears when you swipe down from the top of the home screen. You can also
specify the order of these options, and switch between your personal space and work space from the Quick Settings menu.
From the Device Monitor screen, you can view how much storage space and battery power each of your apps is using. You
can see information about CPU, memory, and mobile network or Wi-Fi network usage.

BlackBerry ID
A BlackBerry ID gives you convenient access to multiple BlackBerry products and services. After you create a BlackBerry
ID, you can use your email address and password to log in to any BlackBerry product that supports BlackBerry ID. With
BlackBerry ID, you can manage apps that you downloaded from the BlackBerry World storefront and download the apps
when you switch devices. You should sign in with the same BlackBerry ID on all of your BlackBerry devices.
If you previously created a BlackBerry ID, you must use it when you set up your new device instead of creating a new
BlackBerry ID. You can log in to both a tablet and smartphone using the same BlackBerry ID.
Set up a new BlackBerry ID
Tip: It's important to choose a password that you can remember. For your BlackBerry ID username, be sure to use an email
address that you use frequently. Recovery details can be sent to the email address that you use as your BlackBerry ID
username if you forget your BlackBerry ID password. The email address that you use as a BlackBerry ID username doesn't
have to be associated with your BlackBerry device.

Using your BlackBerry ID to switch devices
Using your BlackBerry ID on a new device
When you switch to a new BlackBerry device, during setup, you will be prompted to enter your BlackBerry ID username
and password. It's important to use the same BlackBerry ID that you used on your previous device, since many of your apps
and settings are associated with your BlackBerry ID.
37
User Guide
Setup and basics
For instance, when you use your existing BlackBerry ID on your new device, you can reinstall apps that you downloaded on
your previous device from the BlackBerry World storefront, if a version of that app exists for your new device.
Find your BlackBerry ID on your old device
If you have previously created a BlackBerry ID and are switching to a new BlackBerry device, it's important to sign in using
your existing BlackBerry ID, as many of your apps and settings are associated with it.
1.
On the home screen of your old device, click Options.
2.
Depending on your device, do one of the following:
•
Click Third Party Applications > BlackBerry ID.
•
Click Device > BlackBerry ID.
•
Click BlackBerry ID.
Can I sign out of BlackBerry ID and sign in with a
different BlackBerry ID?
You can only sign in with one BlackBerry ID on your BlackBerry device. If you want to sign out and then sign in with a
different BlackBerry ID, you must delete all of the data from your device.
Why do I need to re-enter my BlackBerry ID password?
After a certain amount of time, if you aren't actively using the app or service that supports BlackBerry ID, you might be
prompted to re-enter your password. For example, you might be prompted to re-enter your BlackBerry ID password before
you download apps from the BlackBerry World storefront.
You might also be required to re-enter your BlackBerry ID if you change any of your BlackBerry ID information, delete all of
the data on your BlackBerry device, or update the software on your device.
What is the difference between my BlackBerry ID
username and screen name?
Your BlackBerry ID username is the email address that you use when you log in using your BlackBerry ID. The BlackBerry
ID screen name is the name that appears when you submit app reviews in the BlackBerry World storefront.

Voicemail
Depending on your service provider, there are two different types of voicemail available on your BlackBerry device:
standard voicemail and a visual voicemail service.
With standard voicemail, you can set up your voicemail access number and password, so you can quickly call in to your
voicemail service from the Calls screen in the Phone app.
If you subscribe to a visual voicemail service, you can view a list of your voicemail messages, play your voicemail messages,
and change various voicemail settings from your BlackBerry device, without having to call in to your voicemail service.
Depending on the features your service provider supports, your voicemail messages can be automatically downloaded to
your device and you can pause, fast-forward, or rewind the voicemail message as you listen to it. You can also forward a
voicemail message, send a reply to the person who left you a voicemail message, or delete a voicemail message from within
the Phone app or the BlackBerry Hub.
Your service provider might automatically delete messages after a certain period of time. If you don't want a message to get
automatically deleted, you can save it to your device.
Depending on your country or region, a visual voicemail service might not be available. You need to subscribe to a visual
voicemail service to access the features. Contact your service provider to subscribe.

To identify priority messages, your BlackBerry device looks at whether a message is flagged as important, whether the
sender is a frequent contact, and other criteria.
You can help your device learn which messages are important to you by changing the priority of a message. For example, if

Securing your email
You can digitally sign or encrypt messages if you use a work email account that supports S/MIME-protected messages or
IBM Notes email encryption on your BlackBerry device. Digitally signing or encrypting messages adds another level of
security to email messages that you send from your device.
Digital signatures are designed to help recipients verify the authenticity and integrity of messages that you send. With S/
MIME-protected messages, when you digitally sign a message using your private key, recipients use your public key to
verify that the message is from you and that the message hasn't been changed.
Encryption is designed to keep messages confidential. With S/MIME-protected messages, when you encrypt a message,
your device uses the recipient’s public key to encrypt the message. Recipients use their private key to decrypt the
message.
Your BlackBerry device supports keys and certificates in the following file formats and file name extensions:
•
•
•
PEM (.pem, .cer)
DER (.der, .cer)
PFX (.pfx, .p12)
Set up S/MIME-protected messaging
You need to store a private key and certificate on your BlackBerry device to send signed or encrypted email messages
using S/MIME-protected messaging. You can store a key and certificate by importing the files from a work email message.
1.

Tip: Like most electronic devices, your device battery drains less quickly if you keep it out of the sun and other hot places,
keep the contacts clean, and charge it regularly. Avoid leaving your device turned off with a low battery power level for an
extended time.

Choosing a connection
Your BlackBerry device is capable of a wide range of connections, to increase what you can do with your device and how it
interacts with other devices. Take a look at the list of connections to learn about the different types of connections, some
tips for when to use each connection, and maybe learn a few things you didn't know you could do.
Network connections
Mobile network
A mobile network connection allows your BlackBerry device to make calls and, if you have a data plan, use data
services such as Internet browsing. In some locations, such as in a hospital or on an airplane, you need to turn off
your mobile network connection, but usually you can just leave your mobile network connection on.
Wi-Fi
A Wi-Fi network connection is another way to get data services on your device, but unlike using the mobile network,
using Wi-Fi doesn't add charges to your data plan. Your device is designed to try to use saved Wi-Fi networks before
it tries to use the mobile network for basic data functions such as using the Internet or downloading apps. You can
leave Wi-Fi on so that as soon as you're in range of a saved Wi-Fi network, your device connects to it automatically,
but remember that if you leave Wi-Fi on all the time your battery can drain faster.

Connections between devices
USB
You can use a USB cable to create a two-way connection between your BlackBerry device and your computer.
When you connect your device to your computer using a USB cable, your device appears on your computer as a
removable storage device. Depending on the functionality of your computer, you can usually use a USB connection
to drag files between your computer and your device.
Bluetooth technology
Bluetooth wireless technology allows you to create a direct connection between your BlackBerry device and another
Bluetooth enabled device. Although you can transfer files over a Bluetooth connection, because of its ability to
stream content, Bluetooth connections are more commonly used for actions such as playing the music on your
BlackBerry device through a separate speaker or making calls on a headset that is using your BlackBerry device's
mobile network connection.
NFC
NFC is a short-range wireless technology that's used for quickly creating connections between your BlackBerry
device and other NFC-enabled devices or NFC tags. With NFC you don't need to enter pairing information to make a
connection, so it's useful for on-the-go actions such as transferring contact cards with people you meet, or grabbing
information from a poster that contains an NFC tag. Depending on your wireless service provider and the
applications you have installed on your BlackBerry device, NFC can also be used to turn your device into a digital
wallet to allow you to do things such as make payments with your BlackBerry device.
Shared Internet connections
You can use your BlackBerry device's connection to the mobile network to allow other devices to access the Internet. This
functionality is particularly useful if you want to browse the Internet on your laptop or Wi-Fi only tablet but you don't have
access to a Wi-Fi network.
Internet tethering
You can use Internet tethering when you only have one device that you want to connect to the Internet through your
BlackBerry device's mobile network connection. You can connect the device to your BlackBerry device using a USB
cable or, if both devices are Bluetooth enabled, you can use Bluetooth technology instead.
Mobile Hotspot
You can use Mobile Hotspot mode to connect up to eight devices to your BlackBerry device. (The number of
devices that you can connect depends on your wireless service provider.) Connecting your devices using Mobile
Hotspot mode is like connecting to a Wi-Fi router; you can use the Wi-Fi connections on your devices, but you don't
need access to a Wi-Fi network.

VPN connections
You can connect your BlackBerry device to a virtual private network (VPN) over your mobile network or using a Wi-Fi

Turn on airplane mode
In some places, such as on an airplane or in a hospital, you need to turn off all the connections on your BlackBerry device.
Airplane mode lets you quickly turn off your connections and, when you're done using airplane mode, turning off airplane

card or device properly provisioned. If you're not sure if your device is set up for roaming, or what roaming fees will apply,
it's a good idea to check with your wireless service provider before you travel.
Switch wireless networks manually
Your BlackBerry device is designed to switch to an appropriate wireless network automatically when you travel, but you
might need to try switching networks manually if you're having trouble connecting or if the network signal is weak.
To switch wireless networks manually, your wireless service plan must include this service and your device must be

Wi-Fi network settings
Usually, you don't need to change your settings for a Wi-Fi network; however, you might need to change your settings if you
have trouble connecting or if you need to connect manually.
The settings that are available for each Wi-Fi network depend on the type of network you're connecting to. To find out
which settings to use, if you're connecting to a home network, see the information that came with your wireless router; if
you're connecting to a work Wi-Fi network, talk to your administrator; if you're connecting to a hotspot, see the information
provided about the hotspot or talk to an employee at the hotspot who might have details about how to connect.
Password
If the Wi-Fi network is password protected, enter the password.
SSID
The SSID is the name that the network uses to identify itself. Usually, this field is automatically filled, but if the Wi-Fi
network is hidden, you must enter the SSID to connect.
Security Type
Set the security type that the Wi-Fi network uses. Depending on the network you're trying to connect to, you might
also see Security Sub Type and Inner Link Security.
CA Certificate
Set the root certificate that your BlackBerry device should use to verify that it's connecting to the correct Wi-Fi
network.
VPN Profiles
To use a VPN Profile when connecting to the network, select the profile that you want to use.
Band Type
This field is set to Dual Band by default. If the Wi-Fi network is dual-band, your device will try to connect in the 5.0
GHz band unless the signal strength at the 2.4 GHz band is significantly stronger. If you want to connect to a dualband network using one band only, choose the band you prefer.
Auto Obtain IP
In most cases this switch should remain On, but if you need to manually specify an IP address for your BlackBerry
device you can set this switch to OFF and the option to enter an IP address appears.

Inter-Access Point Handover
If the network spans multiple access points, set whether your device should remain connected when you move from
one access point to another.
Add a VPN profile
You need a Wi-Fi or VPN connection before you can add a new VPN profile.
A VPN profile contains the information that you need to log in to your organization's network over a VPN or Wi-Fi
connection. You might have one or more VPN profiles on your BlackBerry device, depending on the options that your
administrator sets for you.
If you use a work account that is supported by BlackBerry Enterprise Service 10, some VPN profiles might be automatically
added and you don't have to manually add a VPN profile. If you don't see an option to add a VPN profile, then your
administrator has turned off this type of connection.

Check that you're in a Wi-Fi coverage area. If you're connecting to a home network, see if other wireless devices are
able to connect. If other devices can't connect you might need to reset your router. If you're connecting to a work Wi-Fi
network or a hotspot, talk to your administrator or an employee at the hotspot.
Your connection might have timed out. Try connecting again.
If the Wi-Fi network that you want doesn't appear on the Wi-Fi settings screen, it might be hidden. If you know the
network name, try connecting to the Wi-Fi network manually.
Check that Mobile Hotspot mode is off. If Mobile Hotspot mode is on, your device can't connect to a Wi-Fi network.
If none of the suggestions above solve your connection issue, try these more advanced troubleshooting options:
•
•
•
Check that the time on your BlackBerry device is synchronized with the network time. If the times are different, it could
prevent your device from connecting (for example, if connecting to the network requires you to have a certificate on
your device, and the certificate has an expiration date).
If you switched Wi-Fi networks manually, try switching to another Wi-Fi network.
If your email account is a work account, your device might prevent connections to certain wireless access points. For
more information, contact your administrator.
Still not connected? OK, try the following:
•
•
•
•
•
Check that the settings for the Wi-Fi network are correct. To find out which settings to use, for a home network, refer to
the information that came with your router; for a work Wi-Fi network, talk to your administrator; for a public hotspot,
refer to any information provided for the hotspot or talk to an employee at the hotspot who might have details about
how to connect.
If you use the Press WPS Button on Router setting in Wi-Fi Protected Setup, check that the Wi-Fi router uses Wi-Fi
Protected Setup, and that it is set to send its profile. Verify that another device is not also attempting to connect at the
same time, and that not more than one Wi-Fi router within range is set to send its profile. For more information, see the
information that came with your router.
If you use PEAP, EAP-TLS, EAP-FAST, or EAP-TTLS to connect to a Wi-Fi network, check that you installed the root
certificate for the certificate authority server that created the certificate for the authentication server. The root
certificate must be installed on your device before you can connect to the network. For more information, talk to your
administrator.
If you use EAP-TLS to connect to a Wi-Fi network, check that you installed your authentication certificate on your
device. The authentication certificate must be installed on your device before you can connect to the network. For
more information, talk to your administrator.

About the compass
The digital compass on your BlackBerry device works like a regular compass, but also includes additional features. For
example, you can choose whether the compass points to true north or magnetic north. The compass also works in any
direction or orientation, including upside down.
Point the compass to true north or to magnetic north
You can choose to navigate with your compass based on either true north or magnetic north. Magnetic north, which is what
a standard compass points to, can be influenced by several factors and isn't constant. True north, or geographical north, is
what you would see on a paper map and is constant. If you would prefer to navigate based on true north (for example, if you
are using your compass to follow a map) you must turn on GPS.
In the compass app, do one of the following:
•
To navigate based on true north, at the bottom of the screen, set the switch to On.
•
To navigate based on magnetic north, at the bottom of the screen, set the switch to Off.

The Smart Tags application explained
The Smart Tags app takes bits of information and transforms the info into a smart tag. Info can include text, websites and
other URIs, phone numbers, email addresses and connection information. You can copy the smart tag to an NFC tag,
display it as a QR Code, or you can pass the smart tag directly to another BlackBerry device. The Smart Tags app allows
you to store the smart tags that you receive and use them or pass them on later.
Instead of handing out business cards, try creating your own smart tag that contains your contact information so that with
just a click, recipients can call, text, or send you an email. Have an event coming up? Try making a smart tag that contains
the event information, then copying the smart tag to a writeable NFC tag that is attached to a small gift for your guests.
The NFC feature might not be available, depending on your wireless service provider, your administrator's settings, and
your BlackBerry device model.
Scan a QR Code, barcode, or an NFC tag
The NFC feature might not be available, depending on your wireless service provider, your administrator's settings, and

About BlackBerry Balance and your work
space
BlackBerry Balance technology helps address corporate security concerns without limiting personal use of your BlackBerry
device. If your administrator turns on BlackBerry Balance, the device data, apps, and network access are separated so
that you have a work space and a personal space. The separate spaces help you avoid activities such as accidentally
copying work data into a personal app, or displaying confidential work data during a BBM Video chat. If your administrator
turns on BlackBerry Balance, your adminstrator can also specify security policies that turn on and turn off features on your
device. For information about the security policies set on your device, contact your administrator.
By default, your device uses the personal space. You can it use for activities such as taking pictures, downloading videos,
playing games online, saving files to a media card, and posting on a social network.
In your work space, you can access your work email, contacts, and calendar, create work documents, and browse to
corporate intranet sites. Your work space can include a separate version of BlackBerry World that contains the applications

Your administrator must set up BlackBerry Balance and associate your work account with BlackBerry Enterprise Service
10. After your admin sets up BlackBerry Balance, a work space is automatically added to your BlackBerry device and you
are prompted to finish the activation.
For more information about the BlackBerry Enterprise Service, visit blackberry.com/business.html and
docs.blackberry.com.
What content is in my work space and my personal
space?
If your administrator turns on BlackBerry Balance technology, the device data, apps, and network access are separated so
that you have a work space and a personal space on your BlackBerry device.
Work apps that are open appear with a
icon on the home screen.
Depending on the rules set by your administrator, some apps and features might be available in your work space, personal
space, or both. The table below describes the default behavior for most apps.

Can I use personal apps on my work's network?
If your administrator turns on BlackBerry Balance technology, you or your administrator can only allow work apps to access
your organization's Wi-Fi or VPN network.
To set or view the networks that your personal apps can use, on the home screen, swipe down from the top of the screen.
Settings > BlackBerry Balance. See the Personal App Connections section.
Tap
If personal apps aren't allowed to use your organization's networks and if a personal network isn't available, personal apps
that need access to the Internet might not work.
Where is my picture that I just took?
If your BlackBerry device uses BlackBerry Balance technology, attachments saved from work email messages are only
accessible in the work space. Any pictures taken using your device camera, whether you opened the Camera app from
your work or personal space, are stored in your personal space. All of your media card files are also stored in your personal
space.
For example, since BBM is a personal app, to create a profile picture, you can use a picture taken with your camera, but
you can't use a picture that you downloaded from an email message sent to your work account.
What happens to my device data if I leave my
organization?
If your administrator turns on BlackBerry Balance technology, your administrator can delete your work data from the work
space on your BlackBerry device and leave your personal data and applications intact in the personal space. If you store
personal data within work apps, for example you add a personal contact to the Contacts app in your work space, that
personal data is deleted from your device when your administrator deletes your work space.
Your administrator can delete all of your device data, including your personal content. This feature helps to secure your
device if your device was lost or stolen.
Troubleshooting: Work space and BlackBerry Balance
My device is quarantined
Your BlackBerry device might be quarantined if you add a work account that is associated with a BlackBerry Enterprise
Server and the micro SIM card in your device doesn't have services activated correctly. Your device might also be
quarantined if the BlackBerry Enterprise Server detects the security of your device has been compromised.
236
User Guide
Productivity and work
If your device is quarantined, you are notified by your administrator that your device can't access your work space until you
resolve the issue. Your administrator might delete the data on your device, prevent access to unlock your device, or remove
your device from your organization's network.
To leave quarantine, try using a different micro SIM card or changing your service plan. If the security of your device has
been compromised, you might need to wipe your device to delete all the data. For further assistance, contact your
administrator.
Remember
BlackBerry Remember is a productivity app for collecting, managing, and categorizing the information that you want to
remember. With the Remember app, you can sort your information as entries in folders, categorize the entries with tags,
record voice notes that are related to the entries, and add due dates to entries so that you don't forget to complete a task.
Collecting and organizing tasks, notes, and more with
the Remember app
For example, if you're planning a trip to Paris, you can create a folder called "My Trip to Paris" in the Remember app. As
you're browsing the Internet on your device, you can send trip-related websites to the folder. When you remember
something you need to do before the trip, you can add a to-do item to the folder, and add a due date to the item so that you
don't forget about it. Everything you need to remember about the trip is in one place.
The Remember app is designed to sync with the accounts that you add to your BlackBerry device. If you added a work
email account to your device, your tasks and notes from your work account are kept in sync with the Remember app in the
Tasks and Notes folders, and your flagged messages are synced in the Flagged Messages folder. If you added an Evernote
account to your device, you can access your Evernote notebooks in the Remember app and sync your Remember folders to
Evernote.

Passwords and locking
There are several types of locks, PINs, and passwords that you can use to help to protect your BlackBerry device.
If you use your device for work, your organization might already have security settings in place, such as requiring a
password to unlock your device.
BlackBerry ID
A BlackBerry ID is an email address and password that gives you access to BlackBerry websites, apps, and services. If you
change your BlackBerry device, a BlackBerry ID helps you to transfer data to your new device. Make sure that you use the
same BlackBerry ID for all of your BlackBerry devices.
Log in with your BlackBerry ID to do the following and much more:
•
•
•
Keep track of your app purchases and payment options from the BlackBerry World storefront.
Make the most of BBM features, such as backing up and moving BBM contacts to a new BlackBerry device.
Start and stop BlackBerry Protect.
Password locking and screen locking
While your device is locked, you can still receive notifications of new email and text messages, make an emergency phone
call, view your battery charge level, set an alarm, or take a picture.
To conserve battery power and avoid accidental key presses, lock the screen. To help to avoid unauthorized use of your
device, you need to set a device password.
In your display and security settings, you can set your device to lock itself after a certain amount of inactivity. You can also
write a custom message that displays on the locked screen.
If you forget your password, it can't be recovered. BlackBerry recommends that you back up your data regularly. By
default, for security reasons your device data is deleted when an incorrect password is entered ten times.
BlackBerry Balance and the work space password
If you associate your device with your organization's network, your administrator might turn on BlackBerry Balance
technology. BlackBerry Balance is designed to separate and secure areas of your device as work-only or personal-only.
245
User Guide
Security and backup
Your administrator may require you to set a work space password to protect files, apps, and data associated with your
organization, such as your work email account. You can use the same password for both your work space and device.
If you enter your work space password more than the allowed number of times, your work space and the contents within it
are deleted. You can reduce or increase the number of allowed work password attempts in your Balance settings.
Note: Your administator might not permit you to change some password lock options for your work space, such as the
password requirement or the timeout duration.
Network lock and unlock code
To use a micro SIM card from another service provider, for example, if you’re travelling and want to use a local service
provider’s network, you can request unlock codes (MEP codes) from your current service provider, and change the Phone
Network Lock settings for your micro SIM card.
If you exceed the number of allowed attempts to enter an unlock code, your micro SIM card will allow emergency calls only.
For assistance, you can contact your service provider.
Micro SIM card PINs
You can set two different PINs for the micro SIM card in your device. You can use a micro SIM card PIN to help to prevent
unauthorized use of your micro SIM card in another device. For example, if you lost your micro SIM card and someone tried
to use it in another device, the micro SIM card can't be used unless the PIN is entered correctly. If you exceed the number
of allowed attempts to enter the micro SIM card PIN, your micro SIM card will stop functioning. To unblock your micro SIM
card, contact your wireless service provider for a PUK code.
A micro SIM card PIN2 is designed to enable certain phone features like fixed dialing.
To get a micro SIM card PIN, contact your service provider and turn on micro SIM card security in your security settings.
Lock or unlock your device
Tip: A quick tap on the Power/Lock key will put your device to sleep. This should help you conserve battery power.

Security settings
You can set and change the security settings for applications on your BlackBerry device, and set up parental controls to
restrict or limit access to features and content. You can use a smart card, and import certificates from your computer to
increase the security of data on your device. And if you need to permanently delete all data from your device, you can wipe
it.
Setting security permissions for apps
BlackBerry 10 OS includes application permissions that are designed to let you control the information and features that an
application can access on your BlackBerry device. For example, you can control whether an app can access your email,
contacts, pictures, or the location of your device. Keep in mind that some applications require specific permissions to work.
You can also help safeguard your device by downloading apps only from trusted sources, such as the BlackBerry World
storefront.
When you open an app for the first time, your device might display a list of the files and features that the app wants to
access. If something doesn't seem right to you, you can reject the app's request to access an item. For example, you might
download a game that requests access to your messages, which might make sense if the game includes a feature to share
your game score. However, if you aren't comfortable with the game having the ability to compose and view your email
messages, you can turn off access to messages or delete the app. You can view or change permissions for most apps in
your device settings.
For some apps, when you install the app, you are prompted to accept or decline all of the requested permissions. If you
decline, the prompt will appear again the first time you open the app. You can't change the application permissions later
unless you delete and reinstall the app.
Change or view app permissions
In some apps, if you change the permissions to Off the app might not work as you expect. If an app isn’t working as you
expect it to, consider changing some or all of the app permissions to On.

Using Parental Controls
Parental Controls are designed to give you more control over how a BlackBerry device can be used and contacted. You can
turn off access to certain apps, features, and content. You can also restrict incoming phone calls and messages to people
in the Contacts app.
Parental Controls settings are protected with a password, making them difficult to change or turn off without your
knowledge. You can set your device so that the Parental Controls password is required to add an email or social networking
account, or to purchase an app from the BlackBerry World storefront.
Note: If BlackBerry Balance technology is turned on, the Parental Controls feature is not available.
