Default 4.5 Keyboard shortcut questions

Please Login to Remove!

Compared to 4.2:
1) I used to be able to go directly to address book by pressing and holding SEND key (Green) from home screen, not so on 4.5
2) Is there a keyboard shortcut for Ping?
3) Looks like I cannot lock the device with ALT+ENTER anymore. If not, didn't RIM add auto lock feature to 4.5?

If you have only one language installed alt+enter should still work.

Set dial to homescreen to NO and let's see what happens.

You mean Dial from Home Screen... No, it doesn't make any difference. Still ALT+ENTER will not lock the phone! Now it only just hits enter, before the language selection was showing up. I turned that off, still no good!

Still NO GO.
This is very inconvenient! I have to go into menu and use keyboard lock button every single time.. I don't think everyone has this problem, if they did, there should have been a topic about this....

PS: another big MINUS for 4.5
I cannot go into ADDRESS BOOK by pressing and holding CALL/SEND key anymore! Nobody commented on this either.

Try holding down the */SYM key for a couple seconds.

I have 8300, not 8100.
I started using stand by instead of locking it, but that doesn't work for me because then Pings are ignored!
