    Default Putting password on Text messages (SMS)

    Am a new blackberry user, and wanted to know if you can put a password, or lock on your text messages, so others cannot access this area without a passcode of some sort, if yes, how is this activated?

    Many Thanks,

    Smartguard is expensive.... (at least for someone who refuses to pay over $10 for an app).

    Just lock your phone with a password.

    i hide the msg folder from the main menu.&. use the M button as a short cut. not alot of ppl who ask to hold/use my bb know anything about it, so the last thing they'd do is press the letter M out of curiosity


    -just a suggestion

    sure, for starters make sure u have "dial from home screen" option checked as NO.

    to do that get into ur call log section

    press the menu button (bb button)
    hit options, select general options
    scroll down to DIAL FROM HOME SCREEN and change it to no.

    to hide ur sms folder, hit the menu button from the home screen

    toggle over to the sms folder, hit the menu button, select "hide" and should dissapear and then ur done.

    --also just so you knw, u cant assign keys to apps. that is pre programmed on ur bb

    Just to add, this only works when the sms and email inboxes are combined as there is no shortcut for sms and mms folder, but there is for messages folder

    It sounds like you are really paranoid about someone picking up the phone and going through your stuff. If that's the case, password the whole thing. Just because you hide stuff doesn't mean people can't find it very easily.

    there's always "crunchsms" a free app that lets you passcode lock.
