Question Lock only when holstered or manually locked????

Please Login to Remove!

To disable the password you go to Options > Security Options > General Settings and set the Password setting to Disabled.

I found the above suggestion when searching thru some old related threads.

It's logical that the "lock" function is tied to the password function. However, I don't want my BB to auto-lock except for when it's holstered. I'd like to lock (and password protect) when holstered or when I choose to lock it, but not have an automatic lock function. Is that possible?

PS> I purchased my "new" 8310 direct from Rogers, so it shouldn't have any restrictions from IT policies, etc.

I don't believe that's an option. When password is enabled, I think you must set a security timeout: Options->Security Options->General Settings. Timeout can be from 1 min. to 1 hr. but I don't believe you can disabled it.

options > security > general security > password > disabled > lock when holstered > enabled. this should prompt it to only unlock with the trackball
