Two step screen unlock from holster
I'm using a new 8330 on Verizon with 22.214.171.124. This was an upgrade from a 8703e. Learning all the new toys, but one aggrevating thing I've found is a two step process to unlock the device after removing it from a holster.
Just as on the 8703, if you scroll the track ball, the "Device is locked" screen comes up with unlock, emergency call and cancel. But if you scroll to unlock, and press the trackball in, you get instructions to use * and the send key.
Am I missing a setting here to avoid two steps??
Do you want your device locked when you place it in the holster?
If not, you can turn this off by going to Options>Security Options>General Settings. Set Lock Handheld Upon Holstering to "No".
