Pls, let me know how to that.

This option is only available from "UMA" service providers e.g. T-Mob US, Orange UK, etc (with appropriate package).

Hmm.. UMA started working last night all of a sudden. It's the second day since I loaded 5.0.0.461. Maybe UMA was down the first day I had it setup.

I just had a nice test of UMA with the 8900 and this release: I'm snowed in NJ today and had to host a meeting in NYC. Used a conference line and tried to call in via Verizon (land line via FIOS) -- but got an "all circuits are busy" message. So I called in from my 8900 instead, using UMA.

I wound up hosting a 1 hour meeting using the 8900's speaker phone, connected over UMA through the T-Mobile-provided Linksys router that comes with T-Mobile@Home service. The connection was superb: excellent sound quality -- sounded corded, and not a single hiccup during the 1 hour UMA call. I also continue to find that UMA / Wi-Fi seems to connect almost instantly with this release.

I'd suggest that your problem isn't with the OS release itself, but instead perhaps with settings that may have defaulted to something you need to change with this release.

Downloaded an official release of this build and reinstalled it hoping the keyboard lock bug would be fixed. No such luck....

Overall though, I'm pretty happy with this build.

Bug? I believe its a new RIM feature... "Lock" icon is not present in any of the newer builds for other devices either. If you press the top left hand side of the phone it will lock.

It will if you set a device password.

Just hold the "A" button down to enter standby mode. As the screen indicates press the mute key (top right hand side) to exit standby mode. I believe this mode accomplishes pretty much the same as locking the keyboard. Someone please correct me if I'm wrong.

Hey thanks for that
The setting a password to use KB lock was my only gripe with this build so far
