IMPORTANT NOTES BEFORE INSTALL: 

1. This app is only compatible with Blackberry cellphones platform 5 and up (not the playbook). Use the download button on the top left of the screen for versions 5+. (To find the version and platform: From your home screen, hold down ALT and type the letters E A C E).

2. There are some phones running platform 5.0 for which the latest version of our app does not work. If your internet is still not blocked after downloading the app, download this version instead.

3. The GYE App does not impair your phone, it is easy to remove with the password (which we'll have).

4. By installing this App you agree to wait 24 hours before recieving the password from the time you request it (and you must have a valid reason for requesting it).

5. Make sure to remove all other Browsers from your Blackberry before installing the GYE App, otherwise you'll still be able to browse with the other browsers!

 

Important General Information

By default, the GYE app locks the following 4 apps on your Blackberry:

  1. The Browser
  2. The Blackberry App World
  3. Facebook
  4. Twitter

To access the GYE app from your home screen, click on the blackberry button and select 'GYE app' from the menu.

If you need to get the password to unblock an application, contact  This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it .

Note: Whenever the password is entered and changes are made, a new code appears on the GYE App - and the old password will no longer work.

 

Blocking New Apps

You can always add any other applications that you want to block from the ‘add application’ list in the GYE app. A password is not required for this. (We highly suggest locking the "Blackberry Options" as well).

Q. What if I don't see the app I want to block it the app list?

A. Any app's that run in the background will be in the list. If you don't see it, go to the app you want to block and open it, then, while you're in the app, click on "switch application" and you'll see it in the list.

Note: If you block one thing under the category of "Media", it will block all of that category.
