Default Automatic Keyboard Lock Curve 8310

Please Login to Remove!

Is there a way to set up the Blackberry to go into Keyboard Lock mode automatically after a certain period of no activity on the phone? I am pocket dialing people sometimes. I have searched and found nothing on this topic. Is there a way to set this up on the phone?

There is because mine does it. I can't find it in the menus at the moment but it may be in security.

Not sure if you can do it without a password being set though.

Autolock will lock your blackberry after a specified period, but will NOT send it to Standby Mode (which has huge power savings). However, it's free and available here:geek and proud - BlackBerry Software

Wirelessly posted

Under Security-->general Settings, there is a setting for security timeout. Set that for whatever time limit you want. That should do it. Works with a password, too. If you don't have "dial from home screen" set, you can also hit "k" from the home screen to lock the bb before you put it away.
