How to Setup One Touch Keyboard Lock on Your BlackBerry
Tested on a BlackBerry Pearl 8100 – 8110 – 8130 – 8300 – 8310 – 8320 – 8800 – 8820
Since all but one Blackberry are not flip phones, it is necessary to lock the keypad before one slips it into his pocket or her purse. When we first got the Curve, we had to navigate to the Keyboard Lock icon and click the trackball to lock.
Too cumbersome. Luckily, there is a faster way. It is possible to set the PTT (Push-To-Talk) button so that when you click on it, it will lock the phone.
If you have official BlackBerry Accessories then you wont have to worry about Locking the Keyboard, as the official accessories have built in sensors
Here are the steps to set it up:
- From home screen, navigate to the Options icon and click on it
- Click the icon that reads “Screen / Keyboard“
- Scroll down the entry that reads “Left Side Convenience Key Opens:“
- Change it from “Push to Talk” to “Keyboard Lock“
