    heylo, i've had a blackberry for around a month or so, and i have the curve 8530. I had always assigned screen lock to the left side convenience button. I plugged it in to my computer to put music on and i believe i updated the phone. my screen lock button is gone. no option. it has dissapeared.

    I am a complete novice and would appreciate help! Thanks!

    Menu > Options > Screen/Keyboard > Left/Right Side Convenience Key Opens > Lock

    Is that what you are after?

    As has been documented many times here, screen lock as we know and loved it is gone, and RIM will not be bringing it back, no matter how much we hate it. You can also use the "a" button. Still, benefits of better software outweigh screen lock, IMHO.

    It is EVIL!

    I hope there's a way of getting that feature back without downgrading.

    "As has been documented many times here", if you want the lock screen and to be able to use a convenience key to lock the phone, you MUST HAVE A PASSWORD ENABLED.
