Default lock screen when viewing video

Please Login to Remove!

Hi there.

I have a Bold running v4.6.0.266. Is there any way to lock the screen but still be able to view video?

I use to be able to do it before i upgraded to the .266 OS.

i want to let me son watch a video on a flight to keep him occupied on the phone but want to lock the screen

Wow, I didn't know you could do that. How can you lock the screen and still watch the video. Wouldn't the lock screen be activated? You said it worked before so I'm just asking how you got that going?

Before the OS was upgrade, to activated it, you needed to have the video playing, lock the screen, then press in order of Send key, menu key and mute key.


My son found the combination one day when he was watching a video clip on my phone
