Default Shortcut to Lock the Blackberry

Please Login to Remove!

I asked this question a couple of weeks ago, and I don't think it was responded to. I don't know if this is common knowledge but I hit the half moon and enter at the same time and it locked the phone.

The alternate shortcut key is "K" ... but this only works when you've got dialing disabled from home screen (Phone options) in order to re-enable icon shortcuts in the main screen.

Good tip about the Alt+Etner though! Is this a 4.0 specific tip?

Holding the * key for a second or two locks the 7100g from the home screen.
