Welcome to the BBForums!

You can't "lock" only a portion of the BlackBerry, so no way there. You could password lock it, enabling a PW after X minutes.

But how do you get every word in your post capitalized? Or why?

lol, enjoy your BB.

PW = Password.

No, you can't lock or block only certain sections or features of the BB.

Alternatively, you can create a folder on your BB and throw all your "questionable" media files in one folder, and hide that folder.

Good luck.

I have mine set to automatically lock after several min I thought it would be a pain in the @$$ when corporate made me do it but it actually works to my advantage as far as keeping the GF out of my phone. It only locks after a predetermined amount of time where you don't use it. Say like when you set it down...
