FINALLY FIGURED IT OUT!!! I too recently upgraded my BB and all of a sudden I could no longer unlock my keyboard by hitting the * and green bar ... The message would come up "keypad is locked. Press the lock button to unlock" ... For the life of me ... I could not see any LOCK button on my blackberry .... BUT I have finally found it ... the LOCK button is not visable on your keypad ... if you hold your BB and look at the very top ... left hand side ... you will see a very tiny image of a lock ... press it down and VOILA ... keypad is unlocked .... PHEW ... I was going mental having to constantly take off my battery to unlock my keypad .... Anyways folks .. hope this helps

Well how does anyone know there are two buttons on top of the BB? I had the keypad lock problem (remove battery to release) until told about these buttons on this post. Thanks!

I registered in this forum after seeing ppl needing help and also after finally I found out how to unlock this **bleep** phone without switching on and off the phone... just press the top left of the phone down, and you will be able to lock and unlock the keypad...
take a look at this picture to understand where I am talking about...

I have people who have upgraded and are too used to * + Green to lock/unlock.. what about all of them? Pressing the actual lock button doesn't help wihen they're all in hard covers. GG RIM.

my problem with the Bold is somewhat different. When I try to unlock the old way, it says "Keypad is locked. Press the Mute button to unlock." That saved me trying to find a button to unlock, but the problem is the mute button takes longer and longer to unlock, like I have to hit it 25-30 times now! Every time I've unlocked it, it has taken more times pressing the mute button (which IS on the top left but it is meant to MUTE not LOCK/UNLOCK).
Is this their way of pushing me into the Storm?
