Place the phone in "stand-by" mode before putting in your pocket.
The "keyboard lock" is being over-ridden by your movements, not heat.
Better yet, get a bb holster... (longer battery life)

This is a firmware problem. Either the firmware needs to be updated, but if you have warranty, take it back and they'll just throw it away and give you a new one. You may be lucky enough to find update software downloads on the web.

My Safelink Wireless phone got wet while I was out in a recent storm and hasn't worked since. What do you suggest I do?


Not a good thing to happen, you can try taking battery and covers off and leaving the phone in a warm dry place for a few days and hope that all the internal componts will dry and that they have not been damaged. Otherwise you will have to replace the phone.

How do I blocked a phone number from calling my phone?


Most cell phones do not have that option.

However, there is a FREE app for Windows Mobile users that own a Pocket PC, Smartphone or MotoQ. The program works well. (I use it myself) It's called, CallFirewall. (It works best in a Pocket PC cell phone running Windows Mobile 6 or better.) (ie.: Sprint HTC Touch Pro, for example).

If you need a Pocket PC phone with Windows Mobile to use this app, contact your cellular provider for available phones.

CallFirewall basically rejects any or all unwanted calls.

Features & Options:

a. Accecpt all calls, or
b. Accept call from My Contacts only - accepts calls from contacts only, others are rejected
c. Reject all calls, or
d. White List - accepts calls only from the white listed nos
e. Black List - accepts all call except from the black listed nos
f. Black List Pattern - any no STARTING from the black list pattern list is rejected.
for eg. if you enter "123", so all nos STARTING from "123" will be rejected
this is a very nice option with which you can block nos from any particular network, country, city , area or whatever you can think of.

Finally there is also an option to reply with an SMS. (Text Messaging)

How to save text message? and how assining tone to incoming sms?


you can transfer your text messages to your PC by installing a software on your PC called Jeyo Mobile Companion. download this software, install it and then connect your phone with the PC. once synchronized, you will be able to transfer all your text messages to your PC as a "Notepad" document! i hope this works for yah.. for your other question, go to start then settings, then "sounds and notifications", then go to the "notifications" tab, then in the "event" pull down menu select "messaging:new text message" and then check the "play sound" check box and then select any sound you would like. simple isn't it? ;)

Text message problems?


This is an issue that you've got to discuss with your carrier. I've got occasional probs on the same phone. Find out if there is a software update. It may fix it. Also, if you are in an outlying area, these messages are often delayed. I wish I could get mine to do better too. Also, if you are carrying your phone in a pocket, you may get worse reception than when it is in a carrier bag, holster or the like.
