    Question Keyboard Lock

    Advertisement



    I recently upgraded my bb 8700c OS to v4.2.1.91 and noticed something that has been driving me nuts! I use my keyboard lock a lot so I dont send messages/call people when my bb is in my purse. On the old OS I used to be able to just push in the trackwheel and scroll to unlock and it would unlock (all with only using 1 hand) now for some reason that wont work! I push the scroll to unlock and it says I have to push the * and call button to unlock it. Does anyone know a fix for this? Or is it just the new OS? Also I have ATT/formerly Cincular and my theme is ATT theme. A lot of my apps were on the homescreen which I hate because I dislike clutter so I had to put them invisible. Now its a pain because I have to do the show all thing everytime I want to use an app! Is there anyway to move these apps to the Applications folder? Thanks for the help!

    the keyboard lock thing is part of the upgraded OS, no fix or workaround for that.

    and as far as the themes with the APPlication FOLDERS: That is the way they are designed. I use Dimension Zen theme so I can keep my top 5 item I use frequently at my fingertips.

    Re: Keyboard Lock

    Thanks. I guess I'll just have to find a theme that I like better. I just upgraded my OS acually to the newest one from Germany that I saw in another post. Right now on my 8700c I only have 4 themes does that sound right? When I had 4.1 I had at least 8 preloaded on there. Guess I'll have to find a place to download more.

    Re: Keyboard Lock

    Thanks Mikadad I just cannot figure out how to do it! I cant find the code that is in red and when I hold the Alt Cap H key it just brings up the help menu. I have ATT (formerly Cingular) and an 8700c I guess I'm just confused do you know what the vendor code is or how to find it?

    Re: Keyboard Lock

    cingulars code is 102,

    gonna look like this: change any number in the vendorID to 102 if you want to use the theme.
