    I used to have the keyboard lock option set for my right conv key. I installed the new OS update and poof...conv key is nothing now, and when I went to reset it, I cannot even find a keyboard lock on my phone anywhere! Please help, I'm calling people all the time, not good!!! I have a new curve and Sprint, by the way!

    I've noticed this, Since I'm running 5.0.0.610
    Locking with * does make the screen black, but doesn't password lock. (same with the upper left lock button)..

    I have to wait 1 minute now before it is password protected..

    I'm going to install OS 5.0.0.681 now. Lets see what happens.

    I'm guessing that all 5.0 starting from the .509 have the same lock issue.

    OS V5.0.0.411 doesn't have this feature. So when you press the Lock button it locks with a password and the mute button is for Standby same as before

    I've just updated like mentioned before, and the problem is still here. Thinking of downgrading to 5.0.0.411 now..

    does someone else have a fix for this ?

    I don't think so

    all you can do is go back to .411. > The DM won't let you to downgade and you might have problems using the loader.exe

    OS 5.0.0.411 Download Link > http://m.crackberry.com/official-bla...tiple-carriers

    make sure you uninstall all previous OSs from your PC and then install the .411

    They just moved, it, press (short press, don't hold it) k to lock. That's how they made it on the Bold, I assume it's the same on the Curve (?)

    Press the lock key on top at the left. That will unlock it. (You may need to enter password if password is enabled). If you are using the later version of the OS, lock key does not password lock anymore as indicated above and in many threads, but pressing the lock key starts the unlocking process.

    I noticed the same lame problem. What gives with BB changing this sort of thing without any notice!? I have a lot less faith in BB now and certainly won't be upgrading any OS in the future, let alone buying more apps. I now have to re-register all my 3rd party apps. What a waste of time.

    You have to hit the media Key. If it is anything like the last two blackberries I have had, the media key is on the top middle, if you look at the top of the BB. You know, look at the top where the softkeys are, the middle one with a play/pause icon on it, with a slash through a speaker... that is it.

    I know it is .. but you have to wait for a minimum of 1 minute for it to lock with a password ( security timeout )

    Make sure you have passwords enabled, now go either hold down A or go into options>screen/keyboard and go down to one of your convenience keys, there will NOW be an option for 'Password Lock'. and Fizzle7, Read the BB prompt, it says 'hit the mute button to unlock it', mute being also the media key, otherwise known as the 'hey music! start, now stop, now start!' key. Great for playing 'Green Light, Red Light' with the kids.

    They just moved, it, press (short press, don't hold it) k to lock. That's how they made it on the Bold, I assume it's the same on the Curve (?)
    Doesn't work unless you disable 'dial from homescreen' under Options>Phone Options>General Options. Even then, it doesn't work on all phone models.

    I personally liked 4.6 better, my phones default T-Mobile OS. I loved that you could lock the keyboard without need for locking the phone with a password. Now I have to sit there and make a password because I feel obligated once it asks me to input one to actually... make a password that is hard to figure out... my anal-ness... and also, now I have a viewable voicebox! no more having to dial my number to get to my messages to delete them, listen to them, see how long they are, or who they are from... also audio postcard and video mail is a nice touch with OS5
