Thread: Activating Screen Lock

  1. #1
    Default Activating Screen Lock
    Is it possible to activate the screen lock via a desktop icon?
    Sometimes after a call of sms, i will put my phone into a pouch, but because the screen was not locked yet, i sometimes launched apps by accidentally touch some icons when putting my phone into the pouch.

    It would be nice if i can manually activate the screenlock.

    Anybody can help?

    iToogle will do it for you, but you have to run the program to do it. Don't know of a single icon that would do it.
    Get "iPod & iTunes for Dummies", it'll change your life.

    You can set the screen to auto-lock, but that takes too long. I've simply gotten into the habit of pressing the sleep button when I'm done. Do it a few times and it becomes second nature.

    That's what I do. Everything I'm done I hit the little black button up top by the headphone jack. Problem solved.
