    The only way I know of to do that is to set a password. Not sure of the sequence on your phone, but on mine it's Options>Security Options>General Options, enable a password and then you can set the amount of time before the device locks itself.

    Hope this helps.

    The quick way to do this is to hold down the mute button on top for a couple of seconds and it will suspend the blackberry. You will receive emails and calls, but no button will work (great for people that put in pocket). You re-enable it by hitting the mute button again.

    Yes, but they are looking for a way to lock the keyboard with a set amount of delay time.

    I don't see a DM file for AutoLock. Just the OTA:

    http://www.geekandproud.net/blackber...k/autolock.jad

    If you download the OTA to your PC and save it on your BB you can install it that way.

    Make sure you save it through My Computer.

    I believe ColorPearl takes up about 4-5kb, which is a small amount of memory.

    It doesn't hinder the trackball's performance, just makes it look cooler .

    I tried copying the jad file to videos folder but it was not visible for installation. Which folder is adviseable to copy.

    If you saved the file onto your BB, go into Media>Menu>Explore.

    Then go to where you saved the file. You should be able to see it now.
