    You can change your timeout in options>display>screen display> backlight timeout.
    You can set it so when it's locked, it'll show a message (your name and contact info in case it got lost, for example) but if it's locked I'm not sure why you'd want the backlight on and chowing down battery if you're not using it...?

    Thank you. How can I set it to show a special message or my info when it is locked?
    It does not give me that option. Only the time duration to blackout

    As far as I know, there is no way of changing the screen from going black when you press the lock button. This is done to save battery life. Someone else might know of a 3rd party app that might be able to change this setting.

    I agree though, that the black screen is sometimes inconvenient.

    You might be confusing the "lock button" for the actual password lock option. Once you set a password to lock your BB then your info will be displayed.

    Options>security>password

    yes you are right. I was talking all the time about the small button at the top of the torch.

    Now it is clear that I can not change the black screen if I lock the phone from that button.

    Thanks to all of you.
