    Yup...Locking the phone is your only options (at this point)
    Just in case you don't know how...

    Go to Options>Security Options>General Settings>Password: Enable

    then exit (button to the right of trackball), and if you've never done this.....you'll get an option/window to enter a password (this will be the password you'll have to use to enter your phone once its locked, so don't forget it), Enter your desired password, then it'll ask you to re-enter it

    But the same time if you want to use the BB for calling out without having to unlock the BB, you can go to:
    Options...Security Options ....General Settings ... Allow Outgoing Calls While Locked: change to YES
    Save when exiting

    true there is a liitle trick its not password protected but it could be hiddin, click media>blackberry button> explore then you can go back into the folders and hide picture or txt docs where only people who know this function can find. I created a new folder and called it settings so now one messes with it. If you connect it to your PC you can see it.
