Keyboard Lock icon has disappeared (curve 8520)

Hi

 

I recently took charge of a Blackberry Curve 8520 - I noticed that after I had linked it to my PC via  Blackberry Desktop Manager, the icon for the keyboard lock was removed from the menu.  I've looked in the obvious places in Options to try and re-instate the icon but can't seem to see anywhere which allow me to do ths.  I've also searched for hidden items but nothing seems to be hidden. 

 

Is there a way to restore the icon?

 

Thanks all.

Did you perhaps update the software? The lock has changed in the newest versions of the software across the board for devices.

Thanks for the reply.  Yes, I did update the software.  Does this mean that the lock shouldn't be showing in the menu now?

I am having the same issue when I set a password on my Curve 8520.

 

When I lock when pressing "A" button and unlock using "Mute Button"

 

But when I unlock by pressing "Mute button" it doesnt show up the password. How to do a keypad lock as well?

 

Any solution guys or thats the way it is with the new OS.
