    Standby or Key Lock

    Advertisement



    I am new to blackberry's, having only gotten one two days ago, but familiar with palm's and smartphones etc. Still getting used to all of the settings, themes, fixing the memory overflow problem early before it becoming a problem (for now that is anyway and i am sure to have questions or comments as i go on, but for now my first question is, what does everyone else use more, standby mode or keypad lock? Are there power or memory issues involved with one or the other? Please let me know... thanks

    I use Standby personally... Just recently ive been doing it and i think *dont quote* but i think it helps with battery but hurts mem? (stackgods help me isnt it like your comp?). I usually use keylock while at school in my pocket because ive called my girlfriend with my buttocks many a times so far. Not too attractive lol. -Aber

    I personally like standby because even with your key lock on you can still make accidental emergency calls. Plus the standby helps preserve your battery very well. Hope that helps.

    I always use the key lock. I personally think its better than standby mode cause it is quicker to access the phone if you are going to need to make a call.
    Just my two cents

    i like standby but i wish there were a way to make just the time a date appear on the screen when you pushed a button... but then i guess it wouldnt really be in standby...

    maybe i should wear a watch

    Keylock is standby with a way to make the date/time appear when you touched it...

    Try out the autolock provided by metsfan on the forum as well, really helpful. I'll put my vote in for keylock!
