    This is driving me MAD!

    I am close to reverting back to the previous OS just because of this.

    The "trackwheel unlocking problem" was the deal breaker for me. The OS 4.2 also made my 8700g very sluggish. I reverted back to 4.1 just 20 minutes after I upgraded.

    Peace,

    Jason

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~ Are you all sure it's the OS? I had to do an alternative device replacement because of problems with a trackwheel. It locked up and wouldn't click on anything although I could scroll. That's how I went from a second 7105t to an 8100.

    Its the OS, you can scroll up to unlock and click it, but then you get another window telling you the phone is locked and you must do the button combination. I noticed this in the beta 4.2 but thought they would add the old fuctionality back in.

    It sounds like it acts like a 8100. The Trackball doesn't unlock ghe device, you need to use the key combo. Maybe in future releases they'l bring back the old function. Till then, welcome the world of an 8100 owner!

    You can on your 8700 All you need is a downgrade to OS 4.1 and you can unlock your unpassworded device from the trackwheel.
