    UPDATE: According to spec sheet:
    System Requirements and Compatibility
    The BlackBerry Smart Card Reader works with:
    • All Bluetooth-enabled BlackBerry smartphones

    I also see the option on my Passport under Security and Privacy.

    Hope that helps.


    Which one do you have? I only found this description so far:
    RIM BlackBerry Smart Card Readers - PRD-09695-001 for Blackberry 8700c 8700g 7100i 7100g 7100r 7100t 7100v 7100x 7105t 7130e 7250 7290 7520

    These (I believe) are used for Bluetooth connection from the reader to the Blackberry using a CAC in order to send SMIME encrypted emails, but this must be enabled :

    How to enable BlackBerry S/MIME support package with the BlackBerry Administration Service settings

    Smartcard package download:


    But read this first:

    Prerequisites to use S/MIME on a BlackBerry smartphone activated on a BlackBerry Enterprise Server

    I personally used this many MANY times a few years back but not on a BB10 device, all BBOS devices.

    Have fun!!

    What are you using within the smart card reader itself? What type of PIV?

    If memory serves (and again it has been a while) you need to use the old desktop manager app for the BB 990 to add the smart card reader package to the 9900.
