Default keyboard unlocks after answering calls

Please Login to Remove!

My 8100 BB keyboard always unlocks when I take incoming calls. Aftwards, I have to hold the asterick key to relock it.

I've checked the settings to see where the phone will remain locked, even when accepting incoming calls, but I cannot find anything. Does anybody know if this is possible?

My app version is -- i downloaded it from the sticky in this section titled "Latest OS: 8100 (Multilanguage + EastAsia)"

Thanks for your help!

That may just be the way it is.

FYI, consider setting a password. The device will stay locked when answering an incoming call in that case, and there are many good reasons to password lock the device. Do that, set an appropriate time-out, and put your contact info on the owner screen in case you lose it.
