Normally. It opens the Profiles App, allowing you to quickly change notificatons and alerts. You can change what it does in Options Screen/Keyboard

Hope this helps.

Wirelessly posted (Cingular-Blue 7290: BlackBerry7290/4.1.0 Profile/MIDP-2.0 Configuration/CLDC-1.1 VendorID/101)

My wife uses it to switch to GoogleTalk.

Since I still have the 7290, I use keyboard shortcuts.

I don't have dial from homescreen enabled so K does lock my unit. Still I like the side convenience key allowing fast one-handed locking when I am out and around. I always want to be password protected outside except when I am actually using the unit.
