    As the title states... How do you make the Storm automatically lock when the screen shuts off?

    Is there a way to set a time period so that if the phone is unused for say two minutes, it will automatically lock itself as if you pressed the top button?

    I did a search.

    Thanks,
    Adam

    here is an OTA link to a program called autolock

    http://www.geekandproud.net/blackber...k/autolock.jad

    "AutoLock

    AutoLock automatically locks the BlackBerry keyboard after the backlight turns off, optionally waiting a configurable delay after the backlight shuts before locking the keys.

    To enable/disable or set the delay, go to Options->AutoLock."

    i havent tried this on the storm, but im sure it will work. you might need to disable compatibility mode

    There's a built-in feature for auto-locking.

    Go to System -> Options -> Password -> Security Timeout

    Now your storm will automatically lock when unused after X minutes.

    Maybe you can help? I have QuickPull and tried to schedule a pull every morning @ 08:00. When I check my phone it is still in the warning screen waiting to be completed. I asked this question in a different thread and they told me it's because of the auto lock feature? Is there a way to disable auto lock? How do other people get this QuickPull schedule to work? Thanks!
