Keyboard Lock?


May 29, 2007, 2:41 PM
So I've had the phone now for 1 day. As far as I can tell, the only way to lock the keyboard is to go into the application listing and select "Keyboard Lock". Is there a shortcut to more quickly lock the keyboard? Exiting keyboard lock is nice and quick (* + Green Button).

Also what is the functional difference between keyboard lock and Standby Mode?

You can also set the 8830 to lock the keyboard automatically once holstered. Goto Options --> Security Options --> General Settings and set 'Lock Handheld Upon Holstering' to 'Yes.'

Not sure what the difference is between locking keys and going into standby mode.

The easiest way to lock the phone is to push the button on the left side of the phone.
