Some time ago they locked A and Q which I had previously used for speed dial. I wasn't happy, but learned how to survive without them.
What additional keys have been locked in each release besides those which have been locked for quite some time.
So far, only the "A" and then the "Q", which were subsequently locked in different releases. I can learn how to survive without any keys too...but I'd rather have all of my keys available for speed dials. I use them all. I'd like to be the one to decide which keys I'll use for what. BTW, in older releases, you were actually able to program the 1/W key for anything, and it would survive a reboot, until some software release took care of that too. We also lost a convenience key on this device over the 97xx. I know I can use 6 tools, but would still have liked that left side convenience key. I don't mind when they (and even expect them to) add features, but when they take them away, it bugs me.
