    10 wrong password attempts and phone shall be wiped, assuming the situation that owner of the phone is not present and somebody is messing with your phone to get information.
    WHAT ABOUT IF SOMEBODY STEAL YOUR MEMORY CARD AND STEAL YOUR DATA, PHOTO AND VIDEOS ???

    And on the Priv, with MM, in order to encrypt the SD card, you set it up as extended internal memory.

    You can encrypt your micro SD card. Go to settings, then privacy and security, then encryption, and select media card. Your data will then be encrypted. May take some time to do this depending on how much stuff you have on the micro SD card. Give it a try.

    This is a question about Phones' security in general, it has nothing to do with BlackBerry xD.. You can encrypt your SD card in any smartphone out there.

    Media card encryption create more problems! At least what can be done is, media card should have same password as device

    Yes it is general question but somebody should take a lead and why not BlackBerry. They have claimed to be more secure than others

    That would create more problems on top of more problems, imagine a 4 number password for a media card; would be cracked in no time

    Yeah I just thought its a flaw in the core security.. But with any device you buy, BlackBerry or not.. There will be always the possibility of someone pulling out the SD card, So always encrypt it..

    In terms of everything else, I can assure you that BlackBerry gives you the best security :thumbup:

    True, Brute force cracking will finish that in no time.

    True security will not be just achieved by the phone itself. You need a MDM such as BES, Good, or MobileIon with security policies and rules that are enforced on those devices.
