    Lock keyboard shortcut?

    Advertisement



    Hey there fellow pinstackers.

    I recently switched to a curve 8310 from my pearl 8100, and I noticed that there are a few differences in shortcuts. On my pearl, if I just held down the * key for a few seconds, the phone would lock. This isn't so with the curve. I know that hitting * followed by the phone key unlocks. How can you lock it without having to choose that option from the menu?

    I'm sure if I had read the manual this could have been easily answered.

    you can also assign one of your side keys to lock your keyboard.

    options\screen keyboard\ scroll down to convenience keys

    If you have dialing from home screen turned off, you can just press K.

    There is an option to disable that when the languages option comes up if it's something you don't use. I don't remember the wording I disabled it so long ago......~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~

    I just use the Standby button on top of the phone to lock/standby the phone.
