Blackberry keeps locking itself

While using my phone, the screen locks and when I press any button it shows,"keypad is locked .........".

I tried uncheckong the password option but it still locks the phone.

i even tried restarting the device but it didn't help.

It disturbs me while using any app.

Re: Blackberry keeps locking itself

Hi sumantm,

Just to verify, the password lock feature is disabled and the BlackBerry smartphone is locking the keyboard and not requiring a password to be entered?
If this is the case, please try to first back up all your data using the BlackBerry Desktop Software and then perform a clean reload of your BlackBerry Device Software. For further steps, please see the following KB articles.

For Windows:

For Mac:

"Perform a clean reload of BlackBerry smartphone application software using BlackBerry Desktop Software on a Mac computer" http://blackberry.com/btsc/KB19915

Please test to make sure the issue has been resolved before restoring your backup file. Let me know if that fixes the issue for you.
