Default Locking the Keyboard

Please Login to Remove!

I used to have a picture of a lock on my home screen that would lock the keys if I simply scrolled to it and pressed the ball. I took the battery out to reset the phone and since then I do not have the lock icon.
How can I get the lock icon back on my home screen?

That is pretty weird that the lock icon would vanish..could it have gotten moved to another folder somehow, or hidden somehow?

If you changed themes it may have been filed in a sub-folder, ot the theme could be using a different icon.

I use the keyboard shortcut "k" to lock my keypad. You just need to have Home Screen Dialing turned off, which it sounds like what you want anyway.

The icon may be hidden as well. From the main screen, press the menu button and select show all. This will show all icons including the hidden ones.

Hope that helps.
