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.

PLZ HELP!

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:
"How to back up BlackBerry smartphone data using BlackBerry Desktop Software for Windows" http://blackberry.com/btsc/KB12487
"How to perform a clean reload of the BlackBerry Device Software for Windows" http://blackberry.com/btsc/KB11320
For Mac:
"Back up and restore BlackBerry smartphone data on a Mac computer using BlackBerry Desktop Software" http://blackberry.com/btsc/KB18776
"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.

 

Thanks,


-FS
