    Standby Mode verse Keyboard Lock

    Advertisement



    Which is better to use? I had been using the keyboard lock but mainly because I was unaware of the Standby Mode. Is one better than the other?

    Standbye is better. It fully disables the keyboard so no messy accidental calls and it's also quicker on and off in my opinion.

    Standby is so much better, but make sure if you use a case that it is a official BB case. I've used non-BB cases and the sensor is off, the BB are on the dot and perfect. But again to answer your question before use standby its better than keyboard lock and it'll help your battery usage.

    Sometimes I can't answer incoming calls when in Standby mode. Anyone else have this problem or is it just me.

    do you need to put the phone in standby before you put the pearl into the case (original BB case)? or can you put the phone in the case without doing either (of course given it's a BB case)?

    sorry guys...but when I put the phone in the OEM pouch, it turns the screen off and also the keypads are locked. when i take the phone out, it turns on again....is this different than standby?

    Is this standby also done by just pushing the "Mute Key" on the top of the phone? I ordered a Krusell case, so no magnet to do standby in case. And this standby is better than the keyguard lock...correct?

    lladna,

    I use a Krussell case for my Pearl. All the openings are where you need them,but the screen and keypad are protected. I always use standby on my phone, as said earlier I find it quicker.

    No problems answering calls either, it automatically activates the keypad.

    Thanks
    Mike

    Standby is great for me when i do not use my phone. Last night it helped a great deal in saving my baterry because i had 10% left and was stuck in traffic during ice/snow storm.

    Re: Standby Mode verse Keyboard Lock

    Sorry Ladies & Gents, I have to disagree! I always use keypad lock and find this is far better! I have also had the same problem with using the standby deature. That said only a copuple of times.

    I have set my side key`s to both lock the keypad! this has now become a habit that I squeeze the sides of the pearl before I put it in my pocket or briefcase etc...

    Keypad lock is the best, i set the shortcut to the left bottom button for easy locks.
