Default Front Convenience key in 4.2

Please Login to Remove!

We have a user whose firmware we recently upgraded from 4.1. to 4.2 so that he could exclude his address book from content protection on his 8707v.

As a result of this upgrade it appears we can no longer assign the front convenience key to the application list view or default application view in screen.

I have heard rumours that:

The list view was transitioned to the icon grid with the new operating system 4.2.1. There's no way to restore it without regressing to the previous version of the operating system.

The latest Blackberries are not using the trackwheel(ie just up and down) design but rather the globe which allows up,down , right and left. So it appears that they have designed the later versions without list.

Can someone confirm that this is what has happened. Or even better is there a work around for this?

I do know that with the 87xx devices the transition to the 4.2.1 OS will show the icon grid instead of the application list. When I first made the jump from 4.1 to 4.2 on my previous 8700g that was one of the things I disliked.
