Default Newbie Question for 8320

Please Login to Remove!

Hi all, BB newbie here...spent all night playing with options and have one question for now, more to come later! What is the difference between locking the phone and putting it on standby? Does one save battery more than the other, or are they both basically the same?

Love the forums, very helpful!

Lock the phone, simply prevents others from using it or you accidentally touching the buttons.

Standby is more of a sleep mode.

Standby is better on battery power.


Also look at options- screen/keyboard and adjust your backlight settings for better battery power
