    Does anybody have any experience with Blackberry's 2 factor encryption? My understanding is that you can use a smart card or micro sd card as a token. How do you set it up? I've looked at Blackberry's website and I don't see a tutorial there on what I want to do, which is just set the device to require a micro sd card to decrypt it.

    Thank you for the link. There are some interesting things there, but I still did not see anything about 2 factor encryption for the phone itself. I would just jump in and try it, but what I read on the blackberry website made be a bit cautious about doing that. There is apparently a certificate involved in the 2 factor encryption process, a certificate which can expire. So I want to know all about how it works before I attempt to set it up.

    Sorry, I thought the knowledgebase might provide your answer. See this manual (page 18 should help). http://docs.blackberry.com/en/admin/subcategories/?userType=2&category=BlackBerry Smart Card Reader
