Locked Curve 8520 and can't find mute button to unlock

Hi.  I have a BB Curve 8520.  I just was searching the options page and then I believe I clicked the speed dial option.  The lock keyboard option was 'a', and I clicked it and it locked the keyboard.  I hadn't realized there was a lock for my keyboard (and had been searching for one).  However, I can't get it unlocked.  When I press the menu key, it pops up that 'keyboard is locked.  Press the Mute button to unlock."

 

However, I don't know where the Mute button is, nor can I get it to unlock.

 

My theme is precision zen (I believe) if that makes a difference. 

 

Does anyone know how I can unlock my keyboard??  And then how to successfully lock it in future?  I guess I don't understand the speed dial aspect of the phone.

 

Thanks for any help!

Re: Locked Curve 8520 and can't find mute button to unlock

A quick Internet searchon the computer  found your simple answer and effective answer.

 

I want others to know that the long button at the top is almost invisible on my version of the Blackberry curve. There are three buttons on the top edge of the phone. The mute button is in the middle. I had to push on the invisible top edge of the phone right in the middle-- had to push hard and it worked.  I had pushed the buttons on each side because I could see those but of course they didn't help. I didn't know there was a button in the middle. Thx for the response.
