    Any suggestions for a screen lock/button lock?

    Anyone use a screen and button lock? I regularly play music and need to keep the PPC on, but do not want to accidentally hit buttons and/or the screen, so would like a lock while the PPC is on.

    Stupid question: what 2 buttons do you push to unlock?

    I cannot get mine to unlock.

    Has anyone noticed a measurable difference in battery life when using this during voice telephone calls?

    I notice a HUGE difference when I use screenlock in terms of battery life. Additionally I dont have to set the screen to turn off after 5 seconds and dont have to worry about pressing something on screen. I also use the screen lock when streaming music from the internet during my gym workouts, prolonges the battery quite a bit.

    I am woundering if there is any way we can config the power button to turn the screenlock off and on?

    Did you ever get this resolved? I've tried Buttonlock, Mortsaver and the "button lock" that came with the PPC-6601 and none of them is useable.

    Screenlock...

    works well, thanks for the tip. I found that just carrying the device in a bag it turned itself on a lot. Hope my case comes tomorrow!

    Here's a whole big thread about ScreenLock

    screen lock and key lock

    I'm using 1.2 but I noticed it was hard to answer the phone with the green button. Someone suggesed 1.1

    Why is it that WM2003 2ed always tells you that every program you download may not run properly because it was made for an earlier version?

    Edit: I can answer with bt headset, though

    The HTML documentation that comes with ScreenLock certainly sucks. If I did not read about the two buttons my phone would still locked now. LOL.

    Btw, ScreenLock is not locking automatically. I have to launch it from the program files. This is not good. It should be more like the T650 KeyGuard and work with your backlight settings.
