Default Accidental Dialing on 7100 series

Please Login to Remove!

Hi all, long-time reader...first time poster here.

I have a 7250 and love the functionality of it.

My beef is it often dials accidentally. I do not use the cradle and tend to keep it in a pocket (so I guess I am asking for it), but even while locked I have had some very embarassing calls made accidentally (likewise I have received some).

Is the 7130e less prone to accidental dialing?

It is a real problem...to the extent I called a senior VP client and left a two minute voice mail singing to my 3 month old son in the car!!

May I suggest a holster of some sort then, as they really do cut down on this sort of thing....??? On my 7100i and on my previous 7520 and 7510, a locked keyboard is just that--locked--none of the buttons worked at all, other than the scrollwheel to unlock the device....

If your bb is getting unlocked while in your pocket, you've got a whole other set of issues to deal with, and I'd seek out a forum dedicated to that!! LOL

I think its unlocking from being pressed twice to unlock, then a third time to dial?

Does the 7100 dial from the trackwheel like the 7250?

It can, yes.... I'd be hard pressed to believe that the trackwheel is being depressed twice without being rolled at all to unlock the device when its in your pocket though....
