Talking Easy way to lock it?

Please Login to Remove!

Hi all,

I'm brand new to the world of BlackBerry...so please be gentle!

I have the BB 7130e from Verizon Wireless. Is there a shortcut to lock the phone rather than having to thumb through the menus?

My first post...wohoo!

On the Home screen, press and hold the asterisk (*) key.

There is one other option: In the Options=>Screen/Keyboard menu, you can set the convenience key (between the send and end button) to keyboard lock.

I'll do this as the key is a little easier to access than the "*" key....many thanks guys for helping me!

Default Convenience Key

The Convenience Key is only programmable on the 7130E (maybe the 8700), but I know definately not on the 7100G/T.
