I see in the security settings where you can enable or disable a password. I'll assume you have to go setup a password in the password keeper? I tried setting up a 2 character password and it didn't seem to like it. I don't want to have to type in a long password when trying to unlock the phone. When the phone rinds I just want to be able to hit a couple of keys and unlock it. If it works for hitting * phone why won't it let me set up a similar password?
I am sure I am missing something...thanks

Yes, that is it. Enable your Password, on exit, SAVE, you will be asked to enter the new password, and confirm.
I believe you will need at least four characters. This has nothing to do with Password Keeper, or I would have mentioned it was the place to go. PK is for keeping track of other application PWs etc.

There are two ways of locking your blackbery device. (The one tested is a blackberry cuve 9300 v126.96.36.1990 p/f188.8.131.52)
One without a password and the other with a password and/or password timeout
To lock your device without a password simply hold the A* lock icon to the far left of the keyboard
To lock your device with a password timeout go to options>security>password>enable
set the timeout and password attempts to whichever you want
(i set mine to 3 attempts and lock after 10 min)
To lock your device with a password whenever you want go to options>display>home screen preferences and change (under launch by typing)universal search to application shortcuts
Now go to options>security>password>enable and (if you want to) change lock after 1 hour
Then go to home screen and press c
This should lock your device with a password whenever you want it to and to unlock it, you can simply start typing the password
