I just got my brand new BBB today and am really excited
However, I have read through the manual and played with the
settings screen for some time now, but I still don't seem to
see how I can lock the phone (other than the cumbersome
method of going into the main menu..) and to customize the
icons on the main page?
Can someone help me out there?

I have 3 ways:
1) Keep your finger on "A" (*) until it locks
2) Put in in your holster
3) Put it ON your holster if on a table, (works only on one side of the holster)
Hope this helps...?

Hi and welcome to the forums!
You can assign a convince key to lock if you like!
What did you mean re: customize icons?

"1) Keep your finger on "A" (*) until it locks"
Exactly what I was looking for! Thanks!
Don't really get the part about the holster though.
You mean it automatically locks when in it? Or it just
prevents me from acidentally activating it?
Yea I know about the conv key, but I want to use it for
Re: Customizing icons
By default, from left to right, we have messages, contacts,
calendar etc in that order, right?
How do I change these icons and their order?
I'm sure there must be a way.. Right?
Thanks in advance!

Go to the icon you wish to move highlight it and press the menu key the option to move or hide is there.
Just a tip I used, I created a folder on the homescreen for all the icons I didn't use and keep the in there.
Lot less clutter, and If you put the folder in the last row, it never shows.
You can set your BB to lock in the holster, it's activated by a magnet in the pouch It's in OPTIONS SECURITY GENERAL SETTINGS.
Hope this helps!
If you need more information, please ask!
If not, please resolve the post using the options by the kudos’ star.

Thanks for the tips.
But how do I customize the icons on my homescreen?
And one more thing.. What's the shortcut to disconnect from Wi-Fi?
And isn't there somewhere I can learn all the necessary
Maybe I don't know any of them because I'm new to the BB series,
so a newbie guide would be helpful.
