Hey guys (and gals). I'm new to BB so please excuse the ignorance. Heres what is happening...
1. I'm carrying my 8310 in a holster on my belt. (The keypad has been locked)
2. I'm alerted that I have a message (email or SMS)
3. I take the BB out of the holster and hit the key sequence to unlock the keypad.
4. It opens the last message received automatically.

I would like to make it NOT do that. Is that possible? I would like for it to just show me my 'desktop' or whatever its called or at worst, the message list. I don't want it to automatically open ANY messages.

Thanks in advance,

If you wait for about 2 minutes then it won't show the message. The BlackBerry does this by default, though (opens the message) if you pull it out of the holster shortly after receiving a message. There is no setting to disable that.

What Theme are you using? If you have the today Theme, it should go to the today theme and not to the messages. Also usually the BB will go to the last application you have open from when you used the key lock.
