Bold locks when playing video

I just got my blackberry bold (I have had other BBs before) and I've come to like playing video on it. Watching tv-series etc.


I have enabled password protection on my bold in case I would lose it. The password protection locks the phone down when it has been idle for a while. This happens also when I am playing video.


Is there any way to avoid this?

Re: Bold locks when playing video


I have the same problem. The phone is supposed to lock after some idle time but I dont know why it locks when playing a video.

If anyone knows a fix please help

Re: Bold locks when playing video

Jonathan, it's nearly 4 years since your post. Please say that you found a solution (and tell us what it is) or is this fundamental security flaw (having to turn security off in order to be able to watch video) still unresolved?
