    I tried downloading a couple apps today and discovered that the Content Settings were enabled in App World. Since I didn’t enable it I have no idea what the password is to disable it is.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    FYI: I’m using a blackberry playbook with OS 2.0.

    Thanks
