    Question auto keyboard/screen lock

    Advertisement



    I have a 7100g and I have been looking to see if there is any auto keylock feature on this thing. I know to press/hold the * to lock it, and it will lock when I holster it, but I want it to lock if its just sitting on my desk or in my jacket pocket. Does any one know if there is such a feature, or a app that will make it do that?

    Thanks

    Michael

    If you go to options then auto on/off. YOu can set your BB to turn off at a selected period of time.

    I do not want it to turn off just lock the keyboard after 2 minutes or some specified time...

    I see. In that case go into options, security, general and set a password. The BB will lock after a certain period of time.

    I hope that helps better.

    I was hoping for more of the simple keyboard lock, no password. Not trying to be too picky, even a 3rd party app that might help...

    Here is the answer. Simply press and hold the star key [*] and it will lock the keyboard without demanding a password.

    Unless of course you want one, then after assigning a password it will function the same way but demand your password.

    I am unsure of where you work. It might be a good idea to have a lock on your phone. I know at my work. If I leave my phone out on my desk...my co-workers will stop by and start playing with my settings...but they haven't succeeded since I put my password on
