Re: lock button not working

This really sux! It seems like there were a ton of people who didn't like the top button lock feature. Then, after RIM took it away in the latest OS a flood of people said they actually liked it. I'm in their camp. Why didn't RIM simply make the top buttons programmable!? I'm downloading the old OS software right now. I really hope the top buttons are programmable in OS 6!!

Re: lock button not working

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!
