    Hi,

    My storm is almost always unlocked when i pull it out of my pocket. Other times it appears locked, but pushing any of the 4 buttons at the bottom unlocks the screen and brings me to the main page.

    This is increasingly frustrating because I keep calling/texting poeple by accident of course. I think it's only happened since I did the update to firmware 141 (the official one).

    Sorry if this has been covered before, it's hard to find because searching for anything including the word 'unlock' brings up something completely different

    Any ideas?

    Thanks,

    Tom

    yes, this was a bug in the 141 build if I remember correctly. Update to 148 or 151. I suggest 151.

    +1. I think it actually might have been a "feature" in case the lock button breaks, you still have the ability to unlock the phone. As said above, upgrade to .148 or .151 and that goes away.

    Wish u success. Notes:

    Download latest version of desktop mgr via update w/in DM or from blackberry.com. After backup w/3rd-party apps included, do a wipe (on storm: options > security options > general settings > menu > wipe handheld). W/install of OS deselect/uncheck unwanted languages/apps.

    Hi,

    Pardon my ignorance....does the same release of 151 work on both 9530 and 9500? I have the 9500 UK.

    Is there any difference between one and the other?

    Thanks...x
