Default lock button only locks keypad?

Please Login to Remove!

Just received Bold 9650 and the lock button only locks the keypad and not the device.

I'm moving over from a ATT Bold 9700 and the lock button on that locks the device where I had to enter my password to unlock. and yes, i have a password set. The Curve 8900 also locked the device and not just the keypad.

I've check all the settings but couldn't find the option to have the lock button lock the device and not just the keypad.

any ideas?

RIM changed the functionality of the lock button with the latest round of OS updates.

You can press the "K" key to lock the device with the password.
