Can anyone explain what the difference is between keypad lock and standby on the curve 8520? I've trawled the website and they both seem to do the same. Which is better to use? Or am I missing the blindingly obvious here. Any explanation gratefully received.
Solved! Go to Solution.

Standby mode puts it in a low-power mode which helps to conserve battery power.
Keyboard lock just locks the keys.
If you are putting it in the holster, it doesn't matter because the magnet automatically puts it in standby mode. But if you are slipping it "un-holstered" in your pocket, standby mode will not only prevent key presses, but should conserve battery power.
