Thumbs down screen lock button

Please Login to Remove!

Anyone know how to disable OR re assign this button to something else usefull? I dont care if this button never existed as its anoying when typing an email and your screen goes blank because you accidently hit it without knowing.. A complete design flaw to make the whole torch model a let down model....

This use to be the case with the convenience button which is good because the option allows the buttons re-assignment BUT also BB have design the convenience button so you need to press it two stages before it actual triggers the action, Why couldnt they design the screen lock button the same way?

I have the inside scoop on the lock button. The engineer who designed it has pictures of the CEOs having gay relations with an underage goat. j/k. Dumbest thing ever though, ain't it? On the 9000 board there were people who actually had what, to them, were reasoned arguments as to why later OS versions which caused the mute button to function as a lock button were an improvement. The original design on that phone had one press and hold the A key to lock the inputs, and then hit a two button combo to unlock it. Simple, effective, no accidents. No chance of butt dialing the wife from a noisy bar when you're supposed to be working late. With the torch you learn quickly that a screen lock app is essential on this device.

Thats the thing - I tried and purchased the autolock and also stormslider, tried them both and both useless. No options to assign the screen lock button as no-assignment. Having the apps only make it so you need to unlock it twice, one for the screen lock button, and the other for the app!!!! How can you find them any use?
