    okay, this has NOT been fixed by wipes, installs or 3rd party apps.

    on the odd occasion my phone will COMPLETELY ignore the fact that im pressing the lock key

    ill press the key 4 or 5 times and i get no response at all
    then it'll suddenly work again.....

    Hello, You may want to get it replaced. Even if your carrier wont replace it RIM might.

    Id try through carrier first.

    Your carrier should replace it because it would be a manufacturer defect.

    Screen lock? Have you tried a battery pull yet since the last upgrade?

    Happened to me twice on the same day after my .474 OS update. Did a battery pull and now it's working fine.

    Battery pulled MANY times, no effect. I've been using .474 since the day it turned up on CB, but I've had the issue since the day I got the handset.
    As for getting my carrier to repleace it.....it's a genric handset, I didn't get it from my carrier, just moved my SIM from my Torch to my Bold, so my warranty isn't with Orange-UK.
    It is insured, but not to cover minor defects or mino aesthetic damages, I already asked.

    It's not a drastic failiure that makes me want to smash my phone against the nearest brick wall, it's a mild annoyance that I wondered if anyone had and knew how to get rid of

    When your lock key craps out does holding the "A" key work?
