    1) it's an issue with 5.0.0.461. 2) use the standby. You'll not only not dial randomly, you'll save battery life. If that doesn't work for you, roll back to a previous 5.0 version. It will most likely be fixed in the next OS.

    if you set up a password for when you unlock the device the lock key works on the 8900

    Agreed. I got into the habit of using the keyboard lock with my first bb, my trusty 8700g. The standby takes a tiny bit longer, and although minor, its off putting. I pull my bb out and check it quickly too many times during the day to use a password.

    My expierence with setting a password while on the .461 OS, is everytime you unlock the device, you have to key in password, whic in my opinion is aggrivating!! I used the lock key until i upgraded....now just use stby key.
    It locked everytime it was holstered and everytime a password was needed to access device....kinda sucked.....soooooo, standby it is for me!!
    my 2 cents...

    Anyone experience this? Just started yesterday.
    The unlock button on top locks just fine, but then refuses to unlock.
    *+send will not unlock either.
    Only way I've found to "unfreeze" the lock is battery pull.

    Frustrated!
