    I have a 8900 and I cannot remove the keyboard lock no matter what I do or what version of OS I load. I have already done battery pulls, software upgrades, downgrades, all of it!!! Any suggestions? I have included a screenshot, if you look closely you will see a little red padlock looking icon to the left of the word "ENABLE". Thanks for any help...

    Weird. Never seen this before. Did you enable it yourself, or did it come that way?

    Hey, I resolved this finally. I used the CrackUtil tool and did a reset IT Policy and that cleared the lock. I guess whoever I bought the phone from their company enforced this lock policy. Anyway, just wanted to let others know in case they had the same issue. Take Care.

    This also happens when you encrypt the media card.....

    So, to disable the password:
    Options --> Advanced Options --> Media Card --> Encryption Mode = 'None'

    Then go back to:
    Options --> Security Options --> General Settings --> Enable/Disable should appear.

    thx a lot man, i had also the same problem and your solution worked. the only downside it that it reset settings on my phone and i had to do them all over again but it was worth it anyway

    That is what CrackUtil is designed to do. It's why I wrote it. If it comes back, please re-post here as there is a piece of stupidity around a file called policy.bin and a single registry entry.
