    Is there any way to set up a guest account on a Playbook with limited permissions like on a PC? My toddler loves to play with my Playbook, but she's managed to delete some of my apps on occasion. I want to allow her to keep using my Playbook but to take away delete permissions.

    There is no provision for a guest or other limited account. But it certainly would be a good idea. I guess you could try moving a series of apps into a Folder and then move the folder to Pane/Panel 3 or 4. Or has she already learned how to page to the right on the home screen to expose additional apps?

    Perhaps bb10 will bring blackberry balance to the playbook and you can use one side as a guest account

    Don't raise false hopes. Balance requires Mobile Fusion/BES. Basically, a Mobile Device Management platform

    I wouldn't rule out user profiles, somewhere down the road. Not impossible they'd even come with BB10 for the Playbook. Personally, I can't imagine letting anyone else handle my phone, but I can imagine wanting to lend my PB out now and then.

    Not only has she figured out how to swipe between panels, but knows how to find her favorite apps and swipes between open apps. She can find her favorite apps in specific folders and then uses the 'x' icon to navigate out of a folder, etc.

    We need a guest account on my wife's Samsung Galaxy and my older daughter's iPhone as well. She's figured out how to operate all of these different devices and understands the nuances of each. Being that she's my first child, I don't know if these are normal skills in an 18 month old, but it still gives me a kick watching her several months after she figured this stuff out.
