    Hi, I need some help with a certain feature my 8520 has (maybe call barring, or deleting the short cut)

    My phone lock button isnt working as great as it should be.

    Sometimes, and I dont know which button im pressing for this to make happen...the phone has been dialling AAAAA when in my pocket, which I think gives me some sort of satellite radar which tells me my current location.

    I have rang this number accidentally a few times now with one of the longest calls 20 minutes before I had realised whats happening.

    I take it this number is a premium rate number and charging me quite a bit.

    Any solutions guys?

    Thanks x

    I dont know, i just tried it and got nothing. The code you have dialed is incorrect.

    Its AAAAA

    with the 2nd 'A' having a small circle attached to the top, which my keyboard doesnt have.

    Might try getting a magnet holster and using it. I was having a problem with pocket emailing on my Bold. The Mod group wanted to kill me! I kept sending them blank emails. (OK I'm exaggerating, it only happened once or twice) Anyways, getting a RIM branded magnet holster (which puts the BB in to lock mode when you holster it) solved the problem. The Mod group loves me again. (OK I'm exaggerating again )

    Sounds like you have an addres book entry (Contacts) called AAAAA and attached to a premium number. Delete the contact.

    Then set a password so locked phone needs the code to release.

    Then go out and buy a proper BlackBerry case (with the sleeper magnet) which inactivates the keyboard when not in use. Something like http://shop.crackberry.com/blackberr...medium=content should fix it.

    nothing in contacts with AAAAA, have deleted the number out of my call logs tho...

    how'd I set a password like the one you speak of?

    Something else you can do is change your keyboard to not be used for speed dialing. Go into Options > Phone Options > General Options and turn Dial From Home Screen to No.

    This will keep your keyboard from pocket dialing. Plus, pressing the A key (or K key if you have a password set) will lock the keyboard.

    Press the call key once to bring up your recent calls and then hit the menu/BB button and select options. It should bring you to the right place.
