    Lightbulb keylock works but wont lock power button!!!

    Advertisement



    the keypad lock does not lock the power button (red one on 8100 face). When the keypad lock is invoked, the powerbutton will still turn off the 8100 if pushed and held.

    Has anyone heard of a fix??? I couldnt figure out how to contact blackberry to tell them about the bug - you guys would know how to do this i'm sure.

    i know how to invoke the keypad lock, and it locks all the keys *except* the pwr key. If you push/hold it, it will turn off the phone and i cant receive calls. All other phones and the other bb i had, locked the keys. I think its because they now put the pwr key in front. thanks Stacey for your reply, but still searching for answer.

    I'm wondering if RIM doesn't think that to be a Feature and not a BUG.

    its a bug. The reason you lock the keypad is so that it doesnt accidentally do stuff - especially accidnetally turn off or accidentally make an emergency phone call to 911.

    that doesnt make it a bug. my 7100i does the same thing when the keypad is locked. so im calling it bad placement of the button on the 8100, rather then a bug.

    as suggested you should really invest into a holster....
