Default keyboard lock engaging when I don't want it

Please Login to Remove!

I have a Bold 9000 and have implemented an almost complete set of alphabetic speed-dial characters.
When I select the letter "a" from my home screen to dial the most frequently used number I call, the keyboard locks down, since apparently the (*) key is what puts the keyboard in the locked condition. (* & letter "a" are the same key).
My searching finds no way around this, shy of opening my contact list and selecting that contact's number and hitting the "dial" button.
I would love to be able to completely disable the keyboard lock feature, but failing that, can the keyboard lock be assigned to another button or another series of buttons?
Ay Assistance Appreciated,

David

Go to phone-options-dial from home screen - yes and see if that solves problem. With some OS builds, certain symbols or letters are hard coded to lock phone.

Also, please change your device information in your BBF profile

If you look at the speed dial list you'll see A is assigned keyboard lock. I know you know this. I have not found a way to change this, or delete that speed dial setting. I don't believe that there is a way.

While at the "Phone-Options" menu to make sure I had "Dial from the Home Screen" set to YES... I saw the "Speed dial numbers" menu item and opened it and much to my surprise, I do see that the letter "A" is tasked to "Lock System".
I did NOT know this, and am intensely displeased . I made the swap from a Curve 8310 having the total access to every letter of the alphabet for my speed dial.
Such a small item of disatisfaction to convince me to go look for a different phone :(

You are going to find things like this with everyting, I think. I have my gripes, too, though that isn't one of them; and none of the gripes I can't live with.
