    couple of quickies-any help appreciated

    Advertisement



    how do i lock the keypad to my pearl (to prevent me from making accidental calls) i know i can put it on standby by hitten the little button on top of the phone, but i don't like how it blacks out competely. i know when i turn it off and then back on, it asks me hit the * button followed by the green button to unlock the keys, but then using the same command doesn't work if you wanna put it on keyguard again..hmm

    also the backlight dims out sometimes, even when i'm actively using the phone, which can be a bit annoying as it means i have to strain my eyes sometime. it feels like it's going into power saving mode but i dunno how to get rid of it..

    any help would be supa-dupa!

    sweetasfrank - to enable keylock, hold down the * key for 5 seconds

    the auto dim is a feature that rim added to save on battery life.

    hold down the star button for a few seconds
    second it's not power saving mode it's the auto-dim feature no way to control it besides going to an older os that won't take a 2g micro sd card sorry

    hahaha the title "couple of quickies" got my attention.


    but there should be an icon for "Keyboard Lock" that might help ya also.
    Or you can go to Options / Security / General Settings - Lock Handheld Upon Holstering = yes if you use a holster
