    How to disable the green "dial phone" button?

    Advertisement



    I carry my 8700 outside a holster. Too often, the green button gets accidentally pressed and dials a number. Is there a way I can disable that button? Especially since I rarely use my Blackberry for voice calls, and when I do, it's dialing from the contact list.

    Re: How to disable the green "dial phone" button?

    Welcome to the Pinstacks, eaglejackson. You can Lock the Keyboard, which will require unlocking before the Green button will start a call. Press the "K" key on the home screen or set up automatic locking under the security options. I'm not sure of the exact procedure for the latter as I haven't needed it yet, but I'm sure someone knows exactly how to do it.

    Hope this helps.

    Thanks... I was hoping to just disable the green button and not lock the whole keyboard.

    Don't think thats posible. and if you start using speed dialing you'll find that locking the keyboard becomes necessary if you continue to not use the holster.

    Well, It IS possible to disable just one, but you couldn't re-enable it afterwards. And your BB would be pretty much useless afterwards.
