Default Few things I want

Please Login to Remove!

First of all, soem free themes.

Second of all, an auto keypad lock after 5 min of inactivity or something? I set my phone in my pocket with the lock off and bump somethign and bad things happen. If it's been in my pocket for a bit I want to automatically lock it.

There are free themes on this site, check the aftermarket section.

You can set your device to lock after a set amount of time. Go to Options>Security Options> General settings and enable password, then select the timeout.

Additionally, if you use a holster with a magnet, it will put the device in sleep mode and you wouldn't have to worry about it dialing numbers.

It's best not to air dirty laundry in the main forums like this, that is a surefire way to have a short stay. The mods here do a great job and are understanding. Talk it out with said moderator and come to an agreement.

Back on topic, have your questions been answered?

I don't want a password on my phone, just a lock so I don't bump keys.

You could turn dial from homescreen off and press the "k" key to lock the phone. I am not sure if there is a way to set that to automatically lock after a set amount of time, as I have a password on my device.

And a correction to my previous post, themes are located in the media center section of the forums. My apologies for that.

AutoLock for BlackBerry

It may work on your 8330. I just read it worked on the 8310. Auto Lock Feature ?

That looks like it will do what you want. The search feature is your friend.

So a search for "free theme" and I am sure you may find some you like. Make sure they are for the 83xx series.

Just push the standby button, your phone will still ring when you get a call and its much, much faster then using the "k" key to lock and "*-SEND" to unlock...

All you have to do is push the mute/standby button to go into and out of sb mode

Learn to read PMs properly.
The title of the PM was "Lose The Avatar Now".
I took care of it for you.
