Re: Touch screen DISABLE.

I haven't seen this myself, but even with my bold 9780 (no touch screen) when the phone is on your face/ear the screen just dims and stops working till it is removed.. (I think there's some kind of a light sensor or so)

you may want to try keeping the phone close enough to your face and not remove it often (e.g: switching sides)

if I'm wrong someone correct me, please.
Regards.

Re: Touch screen DISABLE.

lol, as for the holster there are many options you can disable or enable them, I never found them interesting and I never had a holster either.

but if the screen doesn't stop working when you're talking on the phone, then there might be something wrong with the firmware and you may want to re-install the OS or re-set it.

if you don't know how to exactly do that then take it to a professional because errors can kill your phone !!

I don't remember exactly because I don't have my 9900 at the moment. You must buy an app for 0,99. Face lock or something like that in app world. It works.

Re: Touch screen DISABLE.

It's a trial version.  Soon it won't work anymore :smileyhappy: maybe call lock is the one at 0,99. You are welcome
