    I am a new storm owner and this forum has been great to read through.

    One thing though I cannot figure out is why certain applications need certain permissions. My question is...why do some apps request that some of these be set to allow when they have nothing to do with the app. For instance, I installed QuickPull on my phone, and set the permissions to what I thought it would need ..access to the device to reset...but it kept trying to change them allow for all user data info. I don't get that? Am I missing something here? I ask due to the fact that I get work emails on my phone and want to make sure none of my information is flying out due to 3rd party apps and permission settings. Thanks in advance for your answers. ~dd

    I have compiled what they are all for here:


    Connection permissions for third-party applications


    USB:
    Set whether third-party applications can use physical connections, such as a USB cable or RS-232 cable, that you have set up for your BlackBerry device.

    Data permissions for third-party applications

    Email:
    Set whether third-party applications can access email messages, SMS text messages, MMS messages, or PIN messages on your BlackBerry device.

    Organizer Data:
    Set whether third-party applications can access organizer data such as contacts, calendar entries, tasks, or memos.

    Files:
    Set whether third-party applications can access files that you store on your device. For example, you can set whether third-party applications can access files that you transfer to your device using the media manager tool of the BlackBerry Desktop Manager or Bluetooth technology.

    Set whether third-party applications can access certificates or keys in the key store on your device.

    I too have a similar issue. Aerize Loader requires Browser Filtering to be allowed/enabled for the application permissions, BUT I am a BES Admin and I am embarrassed to say I cant figure out how to enable this for select (mine) BlackBerry's....??
