Lock using key-combo?

On a Smartphone that I had I could lock it by simply holding down the red phone icon to lock it. All I can find on the Kaiser is having to select something on the screen. Is there another way to lock the phone without having to get the stylus out or try to fingernail the small space that it occupies?

Have you tried slide2unlock the iphone style of locking your device?

It isn't for everyone, but in the last two devices I've used I've got very used to putting the "device locked" item right under the Date/Time. Then its either two jogs down and a press on the jog wheel, or two downs on the d-pad and a press. Most of the time I'm just getting my phone out to check/delete/read email, so I'm on the jog wheel anyway. One handed operation :(

As mentioned above, press-and-hold the red button - easy for one-thumbed operation.

Heh, you may not believe this but I think that takes too long! I've got very quick at the action of scrolling and err pressing! So its quicker than standing there holding the button, especially when I've been using the jog wheel anyway to read my emails :(

I'm using Vijay555's Device Lock with AEB plus which is a very simply shortcut to lock and power off the screen with one button press.

Using AEB Plus I've assigned a double click of the Ok button (The one under the red end call button, not the one on the side) to activate Device Lock which locks the Kaiser and turns off the screen. A single press of the Ok button still does what it originally did.

AEB Plus

Device Lock

Note the Device Lock didn't come with a shortcut for the lock and Turn off screen in the programs folder for some reason. All you need to do is edit one of the shortcuts in Windows/Start Menu/Programs/Vijay555 and change the ending to -displayoff and save it as a new .lnk file with a name of your choice. Then Use AEB PLus to assigned a button of your choice to that newly created shortcut.

I've just started using S2U2 thanks to this thread.. There's a cool piece of software! I haven't come up with a good background image yet though.. Boo. And it displays my SPB Weather info degrees Fahrenheit instead of Celsius :(

You can lock the Kaiser in the same way, just hold the red button.

This also means you can get rid of that 'orrible 'device locked' today plugin :(

I cannot make it lock with the red button like the other phone. I have held it for 30 seconds and it never locks.

Strange... If I hold the red button the device will lock after 3 seconds. This is on an unbranded Tytn II (htc kaiser 130).
