I am running AD 2003 with a member server 2008 x64 with Exchange 2007, Blackberry Enterprise Server 4.1.6.10 running on 2003 SP2 Member Server.

Can I through the BES remove applications (or icons) from the Blackberry such as BrickBreaker, Password Keeper, Video Camera and other pre-installed applications on the blackberry.

I am also wondering if it is possible to push an image to the blackberry and set it as the Home Screen Image, and disable changing the Home Screen Image. (If this needs to be asked as a seperate question please indicate and I will repost.)

Thanks

You can remove applications that aren't native to the device (e.g. Brick Breaker, Password Keeper etc) by creating a software config policy, specifying the path of the application and have it disabled. It can be a bit hit and miss though, and requires a great deal of effort as every version of the application for each device needs to be specified (this changes with BES 5.0 and is much easier).

You can disable the application through IT policy, if one exists for it, although this will still leave the icon on the device. When the user clicks on it, they'll get a message saying the application has been disabled. Be aware that there aren't policies for every application though (there's none for BrickBreaker).

Currently you can't customise the home screen image - it's only user-defined. Nor can you disable changing it.
