Default 8520 OS 5.0 - can't lock keypad???!!!

Please Login to Remove!

Hi all,

I've had my 8520 for over a year, and right after midnight on New Year's Eve I got the dreaded "app error 523" so off I trotted to my service provider who took the phone and upgraded the software to 5.0

Only hassle is, the icon that i had to lock the keypad has vanished!!! How do I lock the keypad now??? I haven't been home yet today to look in the manual, so please excuse me if this is a dumb question!

AND, I'm SERIOUSLY peeved that there are no games loaded with this upgrade, especially considering I can't access App World in this country! GRRRR!

Thanks in advance
L.

Just press and hold the "mute" button on the top edge for about 3 seconds. The screen will go blank, and the keyboard will be locked. Press it again to unlock.
