I was setting up another 8700 in my office today, and realized what all you guys have been referring to when you suggest I select "Keyboard Lock" from the Option>Screen/Keyboard>Convenience Key Opens: Keyboard Lock. There, on the 8700 was the option of selecting Key Board Lock, directly below the option: Internet Brower.
Well on my unit, that option (on the default Cingular theme, RIM 4.1) does not exist. My only option reads simply: lock.
Why do I not have the option Keyboard Lock available and how can I get it?
It may be hidden.... press alt than press in on the scrool wheel and choose show all. You might find more icons.
What Icons you can hide or reveal is theme dependant and the cingular theme is the only one I can find where you CAN hide the Keyboard Lock Icon
