    Hello Everyone,

    I had quick question on locking my BB Bold manually (pressing and holding *).
    Is there anyway to unlock with password (user defined) instead of * and "Talk".

    I have tried using password option but it locks the phone every few minutes.

    I only want to lock it manually and unlock it with password.

    When using Password option, I have to keep punching password to unlock it.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Thank you in advance.

    I dont think there is a way to lock it manually, whenever you like - without a set timeout period, and unlock with a password. The maximum timeout you can set is one hour and the bb automatically locks after the specified time ...

    I'm confused about what you are asking.

    I have my password enabled so if I lock my Bold (*) I must enter a password to unlock it.

    With password enabled, I cannot use * talk to unlock.

    Hi Teek: I think, the OP doesnt want a set security timeout period. He want to manually lock the device whenever he likes and unlock with a password. Hope this makes sense ...

    Ooooh ok got it! Thanks for the clarification ST79.

    I agree with your reply in that case.

    I do think they should have offered longer time out periods.
