    Re: Locking or unlocking a BlackBerry (OS 4.x.)

    My Pearl 8100 activates too easily - for example I turn my Blackberry off for take off and put it in my bag but the slightest compression will activate the 'red phone' and fire up the Pearl. I want to set the compression time so that it is more difficult to turn my phone on accidentally

    Thanks H.
    However does this mean that if the 'red phone' is accidentally compressed in my bag, activates the BB and then times out after 2 minutes because no one entered a password and say that continued to happen 10 times, then the BB will be automatically reset to factory settings?
    Thanks
