Default keyboard lock

Please Login to Remove!

i installed the latest firmware on my 8700 and for some reason everytime i reboot the device it goes into keyboard lock. I looked everywhere and cant find where or if i can disabled it.

Holster lock is set to off so thats fine but everytime i have to reboot it it goes right to locked. not sure if its normal or not

anyone?

installed: T-Mobile_BlackBerry_8700_v4.2.1.107

go to options > security options > general settings > and see what password is set to.

That is interesting. This is happening after every battery pull?

yea first time ive ever seen this happen. most of our devices are 8800's now so i thought it was maybe a specfic setting on this particular 8700 model.

i installed the firmware and as soon as it rebooted it went into locked keyboard, i pulled the battery and everytime it does the same.

Was this happening before the OS update? I've never used an 8700 model personally, so I don't know too much about them.

Would it be possible to revert back to the old OS and test this theory out?
