    I assume you are using the slide out keyboard... If you press the "alt" key twice it will lock so you can continue to enter numbers. When you are done you press the "alt" key a single time to unlock.

    You can tap the alt twice to lock it. Push it once for just a single instance. Or, you can hold it while you type.
