Pnatech Link P7040 i need to change or turn off shortcut keys

I have a pay as you go and the shortcut key for mobile web is the 5/F key.  I am constantly accidentally hitting this key in my pocket and it connects to internet and uses all my minutes!  is there a way to disable the shortcut key or change it or prevent it from connnecting to the web?

if you never want to use the internet go to http://www.wireless.att.com/support/tutorials.do?tutorialsCategory=Internet&tutorialId=801450&device... and create a new profile and put whatever you want in the boxes so it will be unable to access data.

 

or call prepaid and put a data block on it

 

if you want access other than that you probably cannot get rid of the shortcut and would need to contact Pantech if you really want to know

Couldn't you just lock the keyboard before you put the phone in your pocket and that would end the pocket accessing the phone.

I agree. Locking the keyboard will prevent this. I always lock mine when putting it in my pocket and/or in the case at any time.
