    Default Keypad Lock/Unlock Help

    Strange issue has been occurring with a family member's 8830. Basically when the keypad is locked by pushing [alt + enter] and then unlocked by pushing
    [* + send key] , the phone screen basically opens the last program that was highlighted prior to the phone being locked.

    However, when the phone is locked simply by choosing the Lock Icon and then unlocked with the [* + send key] the normal home screen appears...

    Can someone please help with this ???

    I tested what you stated on my curve, and your correct if i'm icons screen (all icons) and then hit [alt+enter] it'll lock then when i unlock it, it returns to that screen, but then if i go to my main screen and hit the lock icon then unlock it, it returns to that main screen as well but forgive me I'm failing to see how this is causing a problem for you, it's just like putting your computer in sleep mode, whatever screen your on when u put it into sleep it returns to...

    on the phone, basically what is happening is that regardless of the fact that im on the home screen, lets say my toggle is on the message icon, when i lock the phone and unlock it using the keypad method once the phone is unlocked it will actually open the messages. and not just show the home screen...

    Does that make sense??

    Makes perfect sense, it retains the memory of where you were on your device...but if you were on the message icon, then lock it and THEN when you unlock it, it opens the messages that don't make sense....my curve simply returns back to the messages icon.

    Any idea how i could prevent it from actually opening the icons?


    Its very strange because if i unlock it after clicking on the LOCK icon, as opposed to the keypad [alt +enter] everything is fine and it doesnt open the icons

    Mine has this same problem. The odd thing is that everything worked fine for the first month that I had the phone. Now all of a sudden it does this annoying thing!

    I have AT&T, as well. I have the left button programmed as a shortcut to the internet. But I've always had it programmed that way and only recently has this annoying problem started happening.

    Default same problem

    I am REALLY new with my blackberry...but i am having the same problem...only with my send key. after i lock and unlock my phone, it reverts back to the screen before i locked it (ie. displays the old time) My issue is i can't figure out how to get the send key to go back to just showing my call log. the same thing happens for the number keys (instead of just allowing me to dial a number)

    This issue is definately related to the 8800 series. I have an 8820 from work i just tried it right now and it does open up an icon that was highlighted before i locked the keypad. On my curve, again i just tried it now, it does not open up the icon that was last highlighted before the keypad is locked.

    i just had the same thing happen to me today. i locked my phone this morning. unlocked it just a few minutes ago, hit Send, and all that happened is the time changed to 7:50. i scrolled and pressed buttons, but nothing happened. in the end i had to hit End. the time changed back to current, but the call log wouldn't come up.

    weird.

    how annoying would it be if you were over the lock icon, so everytime you locked it, you had to unlock it twice...

    Default Additional Insight

    Actually, I am using the blackberry 8820.
    Were you able to resolve this issue?

    In any case, I have some additional insight to offer.

    when locking the phone, if the "Alt" key is held down while the "Enter" key is pressed, the problem DOES NOT occur.

    However, if you press the "Alt" key and then the "Enter" key when locking (a two key-stroke process opposed to one simultaneous stroke sequence), the problem appears.

    The bug is still present regardless; however, it is interesting that it only occurs under this particular scenario.

    excellent discovery gideon (works the same on my 8310)...It's starting to sound more like a feature than a bug...

    He probably changed the password. There is no way to get into the phone unless you guess the new password. The only thing you can do is type in words until the phone wipes itself, and restore from a backup. Hope you backed up your phone.

    Default Lock Unlock Keypad

    Twice now, my BB Storm has switched from the phone keypad to the typing keypad after it is locked. I cannot open the phone now since one of the keys that I used is not a letter. Any ideas on how to switch from keypad to keypad when the device is locked? How did I switch it? How do I use the phone now?

    Confused!
