    Standby vs. Keylock

    Advertisement



    Just purchased my first BB an 8100 and I am confused about what the difference is between standby mode and keylock mode. Can someone explain it to me? Sorry if this has already been answered in another thread, but I was unable to find it.

    Thanks

    Hello Civrot and Welcome to the Stacks. The standby mode will immediately shut down your backlight saving on battery power. The keylock will stop you from pressing keys or dialing numbers on accident.

    Enjoy your new Pearl!

    Re: Standby vs. Keylock

    There's a little more to standby and keylock then just that.

    Keylock really just stops the keys from doing what they normally do, with keylock on pushing almost any key will just bring up a screen showing you how to unlock your keys. The problem is that it doesn't block the pearl button, which brings up another screen asking you if you want to unlock, emergency call or cancel. This is a problem because you could accidentally make an emergency call while in keylock

    Not good... that's why standby is better because it basically puts the phone in sleep mode to where no key except for mute will bring the phone back to life, so it's much harder to accidentally do anything.

    standby is the way to go...I never use the keylock feature. Battery life will run down and the accidental dialing of 911 is something I do not want.

    Stupid question.........how do I put my 7130c into standby? I'm always using key lock but have the same concern about accidentally dialing 911.

    Dunno, but why not try asking in the 7100 forum? (For the 8100, you press the mute button.)

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~ Thanks for the feedback. I have been using stand by mode and letting the keylock happen automatically. I am rally enjoying this phone.

    There's another key besides the mute key that awakens the phone. If the red 'END' key gets accidentally pressed for a few seconds, the standby mode will also be disabled. :-(

    I prefer the standby vs the lock too. But, there is an easier way to lock the phone then going into apps. Pressing the '*' key for a few seconds will also put the phone in lock mode.

    Oooo, nice to know thx! I don't like that, but oh well, it does take a while of holding it, 5 sec or so.

    Wow, I didn't know that. Count me as another user who has switched from keylock to standby!

    And by not closing an application, just how much battery life does it consume? The difference in a couple of minutes, hours, days?
