Default Stopping dialing from main screen

Please Login to Remove!

I have a Pearl that when you are at the main screen and press a key, it thinks it is a phone number. How do I set it so that you can only dial phone numbers in the phone app and pressing numbers on the main screen will not try to dial out?

Thanks,
Mark

The Pearl does not have that options. it always dials from Home Screen.

If you are worried about accidental dialing try standby mode: Press and hold the mute button on top of the device. Tap it again to come out of standby. This prevents accidental key presses but leaves the phone fully functional.

Thanks.
Well, I guess I should have asked the real question to begin with.

How do you display the log files on the Pearl? On my 8300 I just type lglg.

Thanks,
Mark

Locking the keypad works great also..

I only suggest standby because it's eaiser to bring it back out. Just a tap of the mute key brings it out instead of the * Send.
