BlackBerry Tour: How to change app permissions
Every app that you install on your BlackBerry Tour has a set of permissions that tell it what functions or information it can or can't access. For personal, business, or security reasons, you may at some point want to modify your apps' permissions. Below is the procedure for changing app permissions on a BlackBerry Tour.
From the main screen, press the BlackBerry button (to the left of the trackball) to bring up the Home folder. Scroll down to Options (the wrench icon) and select it. From the Options menu, select Applications.
On the Applications screen, you can view three different categories of apps: Third Party, Add-ons, and Core apps. Select the type of app that you want to modify, and all of the apps of that type will appear in a list.
From the list, scroll down to the app that you're looking for and highlight it, then click the BlackBerry button. Select Edit Permissions, and you'll see a list of all of the permission categories for that app and what they are currently set to. You can modify any of the individual permissions however you want; for example, you could allow USB connections for a specific app while denying Bluetooth connections.
Be aware when modifying app permissions that certain apps will require certain permissions to function. For example, a GPS program probably won't be able to function if you deny it the permission for Location Data. Some core apps -- like BlackBerry Messenger -- won't even allow you to edit their permissions.
Your BlackBerry has a default permissions configuration that it applies to new apps, and you can modify this default permission list as well. To change default permissions, click the BlackBerry button from inside an app's permissions and choose Edit Defaults, or click the BlackBerry button when in the prior Applications screen and select Edit Default Permissions.
