Default Shortcut to Lock

Please Login to Remove!

Am I dumb or did they remove the alt+enter lock shortcut? Anybody know the new shortcut on how to lock the 8800 instead of having to go find it on the home screen?

You need to use the K key.

For the 'K' key to work, you need to disable "dial from home". Click on the phone icon, then Options->General Options->Dial from Home Screen , set it to 'No'.

This enables short cuts in your home screen. The disadvantage is that when you want to call, you need to hit the green call button and then enter a number - you can't start pressing numbers from the home screen to dial.
