"Hey everyone: Is there a way to prevent students from getting into SETTINGS on the NOOK? I am afraid that they will get in and erase the NOOK! Also, is there a way to stop automatic sample downloads from B&N?"

"Have you contacted Barnes and Nobles?  Our local store has an education rep. and they will accept only PO's which I like.  They load the Nooks so no credit card, etc can be used on the school purchased Nooks."

"You can now do a Purchase Order to purchase e-books through Barnes & Noble.  They will manage your accounts for you, putting the e-books on the nooks per your specifications.  They will set up an e-book account using POs.   "
