I'm scared my **** will dial 911
Weird question but, you know when you lock your keyboard, and if you press the trackball.. It'll say Unlock Emergency call or Cancel?
We'll, I'm scared to put my BB in my pocket, because I don't wanna **** dial 911.
And since I don't wanna try it just to know what's gonna happen.. I'm asking you all..
What does it do when you select Emergency call when the keyboards lock? Does it call 911 right away? What?

Instead of locking your keyboard you can put the phone in Standby by pressing the Mute key at the top of the phone. This has the added advantage of making your battery last longer. When in Standby, the phone won't respond to any keyboard button press, or trackball press. It will respond to a press of any of the 4 top home row keys, but only as a pop-up screen that says the phone is in Standby, and to press the Mute key to exit Standby.
Oh, in case you are wondering, you will continue to receive all calls and messages while in Standby Mode.A little obsessive...

Seriously, is there a way to disable the trackball\911 feature. I've had my BB for about 6 weeks now and I've already called 911 many times without realizing it. Sometimes, I catch it dialing 911 and I quickly hang up - but the 911 service always calls me back to see if it was a legitimate call.

As stated in the thread above, you can also press and hold the mute button until it goes into standby mode, it will not dial while in standby.
The case puts it to sleep, and keypad is covered.
