Lock keyboard Blackberry Curve 8520

Hello

 

I have recently installed version 5 software on my BlackBerry but have lost the icon on the front screen that used to allow me to lock the keyboard. Now I have to push a button at the top of the phone. I have also lost the calculator. 

 

I have tried locating these icons on the application loader on my BlackBerry Desktop Manager but cannot find them.

 

Any advise on how to locate and reload these icons would be great.

 

Thanks

 

Mike

Re: Lock keyboard Blackberry Curve 8520

hey i had the same trouble....all you have to do is press and hold the * button to lock it and to unlock it just press the mute/pause play button at the top of the phone...if this doesnt help sorry but im sure it will because my phone locks!!
