If you have dialing disabled from the home screen, you can lightly press the "k" key to lock all non Suretype BlackBerrys.

There is a thread somewhere in this forum. It is great. Has all kinds of shortcuts. Search shortcuts, I'm sure you will find it. I don't know how to direct you to it. Old Grandma here.
