Default Screen/Keyboard lock issue with my 8700g

Please Login to Remove!

I had a post out here, but I think it may have dissappeared.

I have an 8700g that is up to date with all software. The problem is the darn thing will screen/keyboard lock while I am in the middle of a phone call or in the middle of typing an e-mail.

I see a couple posts out here with similar issues, but not sure if it is the same problem. If there is a resoltion I will be glad to read the thread if you know the link...

Tanx..

That's a strange issue.

So, when it happens, you are able to unlock the 8700 and procede on as if nothing had happened? Any other issues, or just that?

Yes strange it is. I unlock the device and all is back to normal. The timeout is set for 30 mins, I changed it to 1 hour, but no luck. I even tried reseating the SIM chip, but no luck.

Phone: Unfortunately I have to call back the person I was talking to... this is most annoying especially during work conversations.

E-Mail: The e-mail still exists, but again annoying especially when I am on a roll.

It does this 3-4 times a week, no pattern, no specific time, but when it does it is well before the timeout settings...
