Default automatic keyboard lock and clock

Please Login to Remove!

HI everyone,

I just recenlty got my blackberry 8900 and i was wondering about two things.

1. How can i get it to autolock the keyboard after like a minute of inactivity (would i have to download a software)

2. How can i set it to when its idle or in locked it would show the clock on the main screen. the clock is nice and rather than just popping up when its charging it should show up when idle as well.

Thanks a bunch

1. Try "AutoLock" or "AutoStandby" both really good programs

2. There isn't a way that I know of to do that

You can get it to "auto lock" but with a password only. It's under option>security>general settings.

Good question.

The BB won't allow the clock to come up when it is locked or in standby on it's own, has to be in the clock or bedside mode
