I know it can be locked by pressing the star key for a few seconds, but is there a way to set it to autolock after a certain period of time? So many time when taking it out of my pocket I'm hitting buttons all kinds. Any help would be much appreciated.

Sounds pretty good. Was hoping to stay away from a password but I guess its a bit safer too.

How would I do that, I've searched the menu with little luck.

Thx!

Is there a program for the bold that lets you autolock w/o the need for setting a password? I had one for my pearl, but not sure if there is one for the bold...

That's more what I was looking for too. This password thing is starting to get annoying. if anyone knows the name for this other one it would be great!
