You claim you can't track a rogue app but your billing system clearly can (I know that the billing system just sees data and charges but I couldn't resist ).
Putting something that affects a contracts pricing, the way this could and often does, doesn't belong in pages of small print.
Empower the user the make the decision... else you are just being dishonest!
But what colour is the lightsaber?
Overflow error in /dev/null
I am clearly not understanding this. If BIS is a VPN or tunnel how then can any software bypass it unless they automatically insert their OWN APN which they have not.
Sorry I would like someone to explain that to me.
Yes I have seen certain programs change your APN but if your APN remains blackberry then I call BS
I'll add a coment,as I've developed corporate apps for the BB. Jan is correct that the develeloper can choose where to direct their traffic and the default is BIS. The dev can specify failover option to the default network apn if Bis is not available but good practice is that you code the switch option. In theory however if your device has no knowledge of the network apn, it cannot route traffic that way.
Not defending VC as I've never had billing issues but I'm on MTN and use a lot of common apps ( browsing, fb, twitter, social feeds etc ) which as far as I'm aware are all BIS enabled. I have also blocked the normal internet apn, although apps like youtube can still get through if asked ok, so there must be a default path that can be activated.
Just my 2c on the dev and route thing.
How then can any app bypass this without actually inputting their own APN?
I have seen before where an app actually inputs their own APN like for eg "marine.net"
What I am trying to understand is if the APN has not been changed then what you are telling me is Blackberry have a flaw on their software? IMO a huge security flaw....
FFS I am just so sick and tired of having to watch every company and every product you buy
