    Turn off Screen Lock feature

    Advertisement



    Hi,

    I'm completely new to my 8700. I must have changed the config some way so that it now locks the screen every time I holster the device. I would like to know how I can disable this feature. I don't want the hassle of pressing the thumbwheel twice after I unholster the blackberry.

    thanks

    Options-Security Options-General Options...

    Go down to "LOCK HANDHELD UPON HOLSTERING" and change from YES to NO.
    Then save your changes.

    Even when I have mine set to No it still locks upon holstering. Only if it's in there for a few minutes though.

    Check your "Security Timeout" (same screen as "Lock Handheld Upon Holstering")

    Question Re: Turn off Screen Lock feature

    I recently had to wipe the handheld and resync with a new Enterprise server group. Now my handheld locks upon holstering. In "options" "security settings" "general settings" the default for locking upon holstering is "yes" and cannot be changed. This is a huge pain. Any suggestions?

    This is probably set by an IT Policy. Your BB has to play by those rules.

    Probably true but if it is a security policy it is worthless as the BB does not prompt for a password to unlock.
