Last week we found out that about twice as many of you use the Dial from Home Screen option (set to On) than those who don't. I personally am a big fan of it as it allows you to easily navigate apps and just speeds things up. This week we'll see how you go about locking your device. This one is pretty simple as there aren't a whole lot of options. You can pretty much choose from the Standby Mode, Password Lock, Keyboard Lock app or a third-party app to lock the device. It seems that RIM may be doing away with both Standby Mode and the Keyboard Lock app in some recent OS versions. I'm curious to know how many people use a password to actually protect their device data, and how many just lock it to keep it from dialing or running apps in your pocket. Cast your vote in our poll (if you use a holster or don't lock your device go with the "other" option when voting) and leave a comment letting us know why you do what you do.
