BES 4.0 with the correct policy settings (see my first post in this thread), does allow you to make a call while the blackberry is locked, however it only gives you limited fuctionality. It adds another option to the screen when you click the trackwheel: "Place Call"
If you select this option, the phone menu is opened, but you do not have access to contact lists, and have to manually type in the number you wish to call.
Also, when the blackberry is locked, and wireless turned off, if you try to make a call using this option, the blackberry displays "please wait" then freezes. You have to remove the battery to reset it. See my thread 7230 locks when making phone call if wireless is off
for more on this.
