Re: Bold 9000 key to unlock issues?

I know this post is old, but I ran into a similar problem recently.  I discovered an easy solution to this problem in the form of an app from SRID Games. The app is called "Slide Lock OS10 Style". I had the same problem as you with the mute/unlock button not working on my BB Bold 9000. This app allowed me to use alternative buttons (or gestures) to lock/unlock the buttons of my phone. Have a good day!

Re: Bold 9000 key to unlock issues?

Hi every1 I got it it really worked for me. After locking my phone wit the side button which I newly set. I just tried to keep the power off button pressed for a few seconds and there it was the phone unlocked and asked me 2 option to turn of or to fully power off the phone. And I just pressed the back button and the phone was unlocked allowing me to use the phone again. So there u have it. If this works for me it will work for any blackberry user. All the best of luck.
