Question Password and auto lock question...

Please Login to Remove!

Hi - I'm a newbie. I have a 7290 that's a hand-me-down from my wife. I wanted to see if there's an auto lock for the keyboard. (If there's one drawback I already noticed, it's that the keys get clicked when it's in my pocket.) I see the Keyboard lock on the home page, and that's great. But I need it to automatically lock if I haven't touched the phone in a minute or so...

Also - how do I find / edit my password? I'd just set the security options to autolock , but I don't know the passwrod. (She can't remember it either.) Is there any way to locate that? Thanks

Welcome to the forums.

The password settings can be found under Options -> Security Options -> General Settings.

Wirelessly posted (Verizon 8830: BlackBerry8830/4.2.2 Profile/MIDP-2.0 Configuration/CLDC-1.1 VendorID/105)

As you will see, you can also set a timeframe as to when it automatically locks.

but i never checked if it worked on the 7290, it turns the BB on lock after the backlight turns off
