Default 3rd party app permission (Opera Mini)

Please Login to Remove!

I have been thinking about BB security (more specially, 3rd party application permission). I don't know if it is overkill to change from the default setting as it is stated on Blackberry's website that (bold is my emphasis)

Quote:
If you have added third-party applications to your device, the device firewall is designed to prevent these applications from sending or receiving data without your knowledge. Before a third-party application sends or receives data, a dialog box prompts you to accept or deny the connection request.
I made changes to fit my preference and I am passing the information along for anyone that is interested.

Blackberry 8900, v4.6.1.231, BIS
Opera Mini 6


Connections

USB: Set whether third-party applications can use physical connections, such as a USB cable or RS-232 cable, that you have set up for your BlackBerry device.
My setting: Deny.

Bluetooth: Set whether third-party applications can use Bluetooth connections.
My setting: Deny.

Phone: Set whether third-party applications can make calls or access call logs.
My setting: Deny.

Location Data: Set whether third-party applications can use your GPS location information.
My setting: Deny.

Internet: Set whether third-party applications can access the Internet through your wireless service provider (for example, using a direct Internet connection or a WAP gateway).
My setting: Prompt.
Event though this is set to "Prompt," the application never asked for permission to access the Internet; access is just given.

Wi-Fi: Set whether third-party applications can use Wi-Fi® connections.
My setting: Allow.


Interactions

Cross Application Communication: Specify whether third-party applications can communicate and share data with other applications on your BlackBerry device.
My setting: Allow.

Device Settings: Specify whether third-party applications can turn on or turn off your device or change device options, such as display options.
My setting: Deny.

Media: Specify whether third-party applications can access media files on your device.
My setting: Deny.

Application Management: Specify whether third-party applications can add or delete application modules or access module information such as an application name or version.
My setting: Deny.
I am not sure what "Application Management" means. Does it mean that this 3rd party app can add/delete/view modules from other 3rd party app or just itself or both? App still works fine with "Deny" setting.

Themes: Specify whether your device can use third-party applications as a source for customized themes.
My setting: Deny.

Input Simulation: Specify whether third-party applications can simulate actions, such as pressing a key on your device.
My setting: Deny.

Browser Filtering: Specify whether third-party applications can register browser filters with the browser on your device to add, change, or delete web site content before it appears in your browser.
My setting: Deny.

Screen Capturing (Recording): Specify whether third-party applications can take screen shots of the device screen.
My setting: Deny.

Security Timer Reset: Specify whether third-party applications can reset the duration that your device remains unlocked after you stop using it.
My setting: Deny.


User Data

Email: Set whether third-party applications can access email messages, SMS text messages, MMS messages, or PIN messages on your BlackBerry device.
My setting: Deny.

Organizer Data: Set whether third-party applications can access organizer data such as contacts, calendar entries, tasks, or memos.
My setting: Deny.

Files: Set whether third-party applications can access files that you store on your device. For example, you can set whether third-party applications can access files that you transfer to your device using the media manager tool of the BlackBerry Desktop Manager or Bluetooth technology.
My setting: Deny.

Security Data: Set whether third-party applications can access certificates or keys in the key store on your device.
My setting: Deny.
