| | Phone Turns off with Keyboard Lock On
Please Login to Remove!
I've had my Pearl for three weeks and aside from the couple annoyances like having to go into an application to check the battery level and having to go into profiles to check whether the phone is in vibrate or normal or whatever (since there is no icon to tell me it's in vibrate) I like the phone. These things I think I can live with. However, the other day the phone started turning itself off, or I thought it was turning itself off. I noticed this only happened when I had the phone in my pocket. I usually carry my phone in the back pocket of my jeans, the phone is snug in my back pocket (I'm female, I wear tight jeans). I lock the keyboard before I put the phone in but apparently locking the keyboard doesn't lock the power button. I finally tried this on my own, when I lock the keyboard and hold the power button for a couple seconds the phone turns off. If I hold the power button again the phone turns back on. What good is a keyboard lock then? Am I doing something wrong or was this phone really designed with a keyboard lock that locks every key but the power button? If this is the case I think I may return the phone because that's just stupid.
