    Standnby mode

    Hi everyone.
    Here is a totally newbie question, hope you guys don't mind: What is the difference of setting the curve to standby mode (by holding down the mute key) and locking the keyboard? Which method is better to prevent accidental calls?
    Thanks!

    stand by mode will only come out if you press the mute function again. with keypad lock you can still make emergency calls (even if it is by accident) while locked.

    Actually, when the device is in Standby mode and place in your case, once you pull it out of your case it automatically releases itself from standby mode and it is ready to operate without pressing mute first

    putting your device into standby mode (by holding mute, or placing it into your case) saves the battery so I'm told. Both modes (standy -vs- locking the keyboard) prevent accidental calls though.
