Deactivate touch screen (BB Bold 9790)

Hello,

 

I would like to deactivate the touch screen of my blackberry. Unfortunately, I often select things, trigger calls, etc. without wanting it just because I've put the blackberry into my pocket or I touch the screen in a call with a headset just by holding the blackberry in my hand.

 

Can I somehow do that? If not, dear developers from RIM, could you please add this feature into the next version of the software?

 

Unfortunately, the app "TGrape Lock" doesn't work very well neither.

 

Thanks a lot for any good tips!

the best way is to just lock the screen when you are not using it
otherwise there is no option to deactivate it i am afraid
you can download an app called slide to lock i think that will give you the option to lock like on the iphone and you swiupe to unlock it... its from Jared so its a good app

Thanks for your quick response.

 

I know that there are these apps but they are not really working too great to be honest.

 

So, I think RIM should add a feature to generally disable the screen. How can I get in touch with them to make this feature proposal?

 

Thanks

Thanks, I'm gonna try it. However, would love to see the deactivate touch option still built into BB OS...
