    8700C 4.2 functionality loss

    I upgraded to 4.2 and I could no longer unlock my handheld via a double click of the wheel. Did anyone else experience this?

    No password set. It requires me to hit *and Call. to unlock. It is weird....

    I used Cingular's 4.2 - should I use a different one?

    I downgraded to 4.1 because of this.

    It's a "fix" of 4.2. Kinda like how it works on trackball BB's. I didn't like it much either but it is what it is. You'll get used to it.

    That's how the unlock procedure goes on 4.2.

    on all version of 4.2 thats the new locking function...there are a lot more bells and whistles to the 4.2 OS that outweigh the * SEND unlock issue

    Download the OS software for your model phone, install it, search for a delete the vendor.xml file, plug in your phone and run desktop manager.
