Re: BlackBerry Bold 9900 Disable touch screen

I too would like to disable the touch screen.  It's a useless feature to someone like me who is used to a Blackberry without a touch screen, and who cannot easily use the device without the touch screen interfering with what I'm doing such as trying to type an e-mail or a text.  Is it possible to disable the touch screen?

Hello KnucklesL

 

Welcome to BlackBerry Support Forums

 

As already mentioned , you cannot disable that feature ! But On BlackBerry World there were few apps which you can use to lock your Touchscreen .

Re: BlackBerry Bold 9900 Disable touch screen

Are you writing about the GlassLock ap?  The aps I see on Blackberry World (thank you for sending me there!) seem to pertain more to locking the screen during phone calls and I have no problem with phone calls, only with typing on the keypad.  Thanks.

Hi there,

 

Yes there are apps which can lock your touchscreen during a call , But I'm unsure if any apps are available which can lock the touchscreen while typing . You can search app world if any application are available for that purpose.

Re: BlackBerry Bold 9900 Disable touch screen

I have a Bold 9790, is it possible for me to disable the touch screen. I am constantly either turning on or turning off features on my phone which I am unaware of. I have tried to make the screen less sensitive, but it is of no use for my problem.

Hi BS1954

 

You cannot disable the touchscreen but as already suggested you Install an application from BlackBerry World which will serve your purpose .

Re: BlackBerry Bold 9900 Disable touch screen

That's too bad.  I heard that the touchscreen adds a lot of battery drag.  I never use it and would love to reduce battery power to it if not needed.
