    I am having a hard time actually seeing how any anyone accidently called 911 using the password lock.

    First there would have to be a button press to activate the lock menu,

    Then the ball would have to scroll down ever so slightly to the emergency call selection

    Then another press of the ball or enter key as no other key works

    Then another slight scroll up to yes make the emergency call

    Then another press of the ball or enter key only.

    Highly unlikely if you ask me.

    Stranger things have happened. I agree though, it would take some keystrokes to make this call. I still want to know why you can make an emergency call from the lcked menu, but you cant unlock the phone from that menu. It tells you to hit * send.

    What's that about?

    Isn't the #1 default speed dial for 911? I've never dialed 911, but I think it's built into cellphones.

    i had mine pocket dial 911.... maybe it was by the grace of the BB gods but it still happened.... weirder things can happen to a pocket phone.

    i hate that its an option, you should have to unlock it to be able to do anything

    i have since then.... and depending on how the phone is positioned in it, it doesnt always go to sleep.... so there is still a possibility in it happening again

    personally i dont think a $20 holster completely makes up for an option that shouldnt be there

    well i dont feel like getting this thread locked because of a suggestion i made. no more discussion on buying holsters so you dont make accidental 911 calls

    i was disappointed the other thread got closed..... i would have loved to add that BB is marketing this phone to people that dont want holster strapped to their belt... check out details magazine, its there... word for word


    but now we are told that if we dont want a function they installed to accidentally go off, we will have to comprimise the main selling point of this phone


    and dang it, im arguing with someone that doesnt even have a perl

    there is no arguing here.

    all that i did was suggest a temporary fix until rim decides to address this problem.

    if you dont like my suggestion, please keep that to yourself.

    end of argument PLEASE

    All, we are also disappointed, it was such a good topic. To help avoid that in future we should all try to fall within the forum rules in our posts and use the report post feature for those who don't. As we are forced to close when those are not met.

    you can stop the pearl from dialing 911 when locked by pressing the standby button (mute button on top). This works as a lock too and you can receive calls.
