    If you have a Pearl push the standby key on the top left, this locks all the keys including the Power key

    I'm assuming this works on both the 8800 and 8100 - I know it does on the 8100. If you have a holster or case with the magnetic lock, you can set it to automatically lock the keyboard when you slide it into the holster. To do so, select Options, Security, General Settings and set the Lock Handheld Upon Holstering to "Yes". Then, you never have to manually lock it - just holster it.

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~ I use a 8700g and it took me a while to figure it out.
    First disable dialing from the home screen. Once that is done you can click on the letter K to lock the keyboard.

    On the 87xx - Hold down the ALT and Enter key. This will lock the device.

    I have the 8800. I use ALT and then press enter. Some say it brings up the language option. I somehow disabled that and mine locks know.
