If you have enabled the shortcuts on the Home Page (set Dial From Home Page to No), you can lightly depress the "K" key to lock the keyboard.

You can also set one of the convenience keys to lock the keyboard.

Hello

Can the 8700 be set to automatically lock the keyboard? I have searched and found a way with the side button but would like it to be automatic (I have dialled a few calls by mistake)

Well its usually located in the options menu or the "k" key from the keyboard!

I'm guessing you prolly tried both these options but in case ya haven't!

Under the Security Options --> General Settings, you can set Lock Handheld Upon Holstering to Yes.
