Thumbs up Fat Face Fix !!

Please Login to Remove!

I searched and didn't see this so I figured I would post this.

A iphone-ish app is available for the face hitting buttons issues. People with "endowed faces" hit mute or speaker-depending on which side of your head you hold your phone with which can be bad depending on what kind of call your on.....

It's called TalkLock - after you pick your phone up it will lock your screen after 3 seconds and requires you to hold a slider to unlock it while your on your phone.

From your phone if you go to the following link: http://www.cellavant.com/TalkLock/Download.aspx?id=2506


or go to here from your browser: TalkLock™ (BETA) Touch Screen Lock for BlackBerry® Storm™


It has really helped with my fat face and hopefully it helps you too !!!

To change background upload to your device memory root dir graphic file with your favorite background

But before that rename it to "TalkLock-Background.png".

After reboot should works.

definitely an awesome application. Really something that we're going to really need in the long run. And to think that hasn't even been finalized yet! I'm excited for the future.
