    I did a search but didn't find anything.

    On my Classic...

    If the screen is locked (meaning I'll need to enter the password to gain access) if I hit the 'back' key on the tool belt I am presented with the password field and can type it in and proceed.

    If the screen is just asleep (meaning I will not have to enter the password to gain access) hitting the 'back' key on the tool belt presents me with the yellow message that I should swipe up or press U and then enter to unlock.

    Is there a setting to make the behavior the same in each case? In other words I would like to have hitting the 'back' key consistently give me functional access to the phone.

    Unfortunately we're alone in desiring this functionality. Best you can do to unlock the screen without touching it is pressing u+enter. For whatever reason the Classic wasn't given the ability to unlock via the toolbelt.

    Perhaps in 10.3.3.

    The back key will unlock the phone if you first push and hold the power button until shut-down options appear, then use your back key to exit the options.(basically canceling powering off your device).


    If the screen is asleep, you can turn on the display by:
    -pressing any of the number keys
    -pressing any of the toolbelt keys
    -pressing the power/unlock button at the top of the phone.(this one works only when the 'allow power key to unlock device' setting is off)

    To unlock the phone you can:
    -use the power button at the top of the phone if the 'allow power key to unlock device' setting is on.
    -push and hold the end key on the toolbelt until the phone prompts for a reset/power off, then push the back key to cancel.
    -push 'U' then Enter key.
    -swipe up from the bottom of the screen .

    Edit: now the power off + back button isn't working for me anymore...
    Maybe it will work for you?
