How to lock number keys??

I am asking this question again......I have disabled the screen gesture to turn the phone on. But if I hit a number button (whle its in my pocket), the screen goes on.....and I eventually butt dial someone.

Does anybody know how to lock the numbers so they dont turn on the phone. I like the only way to turn the phone off and on is with the button on top.

 

If I could solve this problem and my texting problem, I might start to like this phone.

 

Thanks fo any help.

Good day

 

Try these steps here

 

Lock your screen

By locking the screen, you can help prevent your BlackBerry device from sending accidental messages or pocket dialing. Locking your device doesn't disable alerts for incoming calls or messages.

Press the Power/Lock key on the top of your device.

This illustration shows the Power/Lock key on the top of the device.

 

I normally have my BlackBerry password protected here is the info on how to set it up read below

 

Lock your device with a password
 

Looking for a simple way to help protect your BlackBerry device data and prevent unauthorized use of your device? You can set a password so that you can lock your device when it's in open view or not in use.

  1. If you don't have a password yet, on the home screen, swipe down from the top of the screen. Tap  Settings >Security and Privacy > Device Password. Set the Device Password switch to On. Enter a password.
  2. To lock your device, do one of the following:
    • Press and hold the Power/Lock key on the top of your device. Tap Lock.
    • To automatically lock your device after a certain amount of time, on the home screen, swipe down from the top of the screen. Tap  Settings > Security and Privacy > Device Password > Lock Device After Screen Lock.
    • To automatically lock your device when it's in a BlackBerry case, on the home screen, swipe down from the top of the screen. Tap  Settings > Security and Privacy > Device Password > Lock Device When Holstered.

Re: How to lock number keys??

I don't want a password. That is just one more step I have to take to turn my phone on. I think when the phone is turned off....The numbers keys should be off as well. It doesn't make sense

 

But thanks for the idea.

 

Blackberry should come with an option to lock the number keys.

Why don't you follow my first suggestion above that may still help you from pocket dialling?
