    8830 Question

    Advertisement



    When I unlock my 8830, sometimes the home screen will appear, other times my Profiles (phone only) menu will appear, which, then I will have to hit my "back" button to get back to the home screen. Is anyone else having this problem?

    Re: 8830 Question

    are you using a holster to lock it?
    I have noticed when i put my pearl in the holster i hit the trackball right before it locks, othertimes I hit the green send button.
    when I unlock it the requested task is right there. never really thought about it though
    Been a long while since last login. Sorry all, adjusting to a new life is great and hell at the same time!!

    I am locking it, then putting it in the holster, sometimes I don't even holster it. When I unlock it by hitting the * Send, sometimes I get the Home screen, somethimes I get the Profies (Phone only) menu. I can't find a pattern.

    I looks like an undocumented shortcut. If the 8830 is locked, holding the enter key for 2 seconds, then unlocking with * + call will bring up profiles.

    You may be right. I just tried that and it did just what you said, but I don't remember doing that before, but who knows, maybe I should be more careful!!! Thanks.

    I have an 8830, but cannot duplicate that issue. I have tried the Enter + * + call, but it only takes me to the home screen with my icons. Could your convenience key be set to Profiles (Default is Voice dialing). I normally have a password set, so the (enter + * + call) isnt available. I had to disable my password. But it still didnt bring up the profiles.

    Which Theme are you set to?

    I have it set to whatever it came with, Verizon, I guess. It happened again to me this morning and I know I did not hit enter, so I don't know what the problem is.

    Most likely you're hitting keys by accident before it actually locks.
