BlackBerry Smartphones Key lock

I just upgraded my Storm to v. software and have noticed a really annoying problem with the locking function. Where previously, by pressing the lock at the top button to left of the phone would lock both the screen and four buttons and the bottom of the phone - I can now press the green call button, button disconnect red, "back" button and menu and they all unlock the phone allowing me access to the screen.

Someone else has had this problem after this upgrade, and is there a solution to solve?

See you soon



beer, there has been problems with the Vodafone after upgrade, here is a link on our forums.

Hope this helps you

  • Full of blackBerry Smartphones key lock?

    Hello. Is enybody please knows how to make a lock key on the curve?

    I mean not a key lock, as if the locking of the upper keyboard button is pressed. This, after pressing a button is always displayed a message, that the keys are locked and must unlock them. This consumes a lot of battery through pressure on the keys at random if your handheld is in a Pocket, etc.. I want to make a such keyloch as if your handheld is in the original case. Hope so, it is possible without the case.

    Thanks for your advice!

    ... I discovered, its potential affecting only the pocket computer sleep mode. To do this, I have to press the right top key on the top, not the upper left button (it's only for the locking of the keyboard is not complete as I described).

    If the laptop is in sleep mode, it continues to receive everything (phone calls, emails, sms, etc.) but the buttons are locked except the gren and Red call and menu buttons, and back buttons. You wake up the Pocket since the previous day by press the button top right again (same way as you do this the simple keylocking).

    I hope this helps.

  • BlackBerry Smartphones cannot lock the phone through blackberry ID


    I take a phone of my coleague who has left the company. For some reason, I can't able to connect on the phone. Firstly I didn't at first, the password of my coleague ex, I went online and changed the password. However, when I want to connect with my new password to unlock the phone, I have this message:

    "You have exceeded the number of attempts to connect.

    For security reasons, you have been locked for 15 minutes. "Click on forgotten password if you need create a new password.

    But after 15 minutes and try again, the message... helpppp

    You try the BlackBerryID, or the security password, on the device?

    It looks like the BlackBerryID if you are locked out for 15 minutes.

    A wrong entered security password would give you only a message something like «wrong password 2/10»

    Then, to change the BBID of this device and make it 'your own' device, you'll need to do a wipe of the device security. This will delete all the data in personal, contacts, calendar, etc. and restore the State of the plant basically.

  • BlackBerry Smartphones phone locked

    How can I get my phone unlocked? When I turn it on there is a white screen and says "Reload Software: 513"... If you know who I can reach to make it unlocked or can help please let me know... Thank you Kelli

    KB13003"JVM 513" error message appears on the BlackBerry smartphone

    From a PC, you can install any bundle of BONES to a BB via this procedure:

    Note that although written for "reload", it can be used to upgrade, downgrade, or recharge - it depends on the OS package you download and install on your PC. You can even use a different OS package carriers simply insert, between steps 1 and 2, the deletion, on your PC, a file named PROVIDER. XML. remember that you remove from your PC, no matter what other packages devices OS BB as having more than one installed on the PC can cause conflicts with this procedure.

    If you are on a MAC, you are limited to only your sanctioned carriers OS packages... but can still use any level they currently have to sanction. See this procedure:

  • Smart phone BlackBerry Smartphones is locked

    My device is locked my password won't unlock it. Request to Enter 'blackberry to continue. What I'm doing. Said that the last attempt! Information will be erased in case of failure! I click OK. Reading the screen: enter the password (last attempt): I enter the password and it does not work.

    1. what says Sudeep is incorrect. Once you have tried your final attempt to password, your device will wipe itself of all personal information, preferences, messages, calendar, address book, etc.. You will have a "cool" device

    There is nothing "make" can do to save the device of a security wipe, or retrieve the information for wiping.

    2. If you have had your password numbers, (e.g. 1234), try replacing, as in many cases, alpha character you press the ALT key to enter the number when you set up the password.

    So a password '1234', it could in fact be "1st" do make sense?

  • BlackBerry smartphone Password Lock/keyboard Lock on Blackberry 8520

    So I have updated my curve to the new version 5. I noticed that there wasn't any more keyboard Lock/Password Lock. My previous software, it was named keyboard lock and I put it as one of my convenience keys. After the update, I noticed that he had ceased to exist. A friend of mine bought a new Curve 8520 with the update already installed of course. She had the locking of the keyboard, but he was named Password Lock instead. I have been looking for ways to get this feature to my Blackberry because I think it's more practical, rather than the button ' silent mode / mute "located on the top of my unit. The shortcut to lock my phone which is the 'A' on my keyboard quickly "locks" my keyboard only. I would like the feature set to be blocked if.

    Any help would be appreciated! Thank you!

    The keypad lock is the A"" key. To unlock press on and hold the Mute button on top of your Bay for at least half a second. If you set a password under Options/Security, a new padlock icon appears. This can be set to a touch of comfort.

  • BlackBerry Smartphones PRIV locked - unable to access with original pattern.

    Hi team,

    I recently bought a Blackberry Priv and installation the Google account on this topic for a few days. Things worked well and have set up a scheme for the phone lock.

    However, one night, the phone rebooted and I am unable to connect to the phone with the boss. I tried to reset the device via the Google Android Device Manager, but it says unable to communicate with the phone. From the looks of it the Priv is not connected to the internet (worked fine before). The phone is now displayed in the model to unlock the screen and so called ' emergency calls' and 'To launch Android, draw your pattern' but I am unable to connect using the previous model, I have set up.

    Please notify. Thank you.


    If you hold the power followed by typing Reboot. Do not REBOOT on your screen?

  • BlackBerry Smartphones BBID locked out

    Hello. Is there a way around this headache? I forgot my BBID IDs I needed to purchase an app. As indicated, I opened a session on the Web site on my PC and reset my login and my password. Online, I can sign with no problem however my laptop seems to expect the old username and passoword so I keep getting locked. The only option seems to be a security wipe. Is there really no other way to change data BBID on my mobile? I'm not willing to risk a wipe of security that the phone is still usable. The application providers will lose out however that I can not connect to make purchases! Please HELP someonne!

    If reset you, which means it's now a new BBID then, Yes, you will have to do a security wipe to use the new BBID. It will eventually catch up to you and you will need to perform the wipe.  BBID is used to BlackBerry Protect, BBWorld, BBM and more. If you never remove the sim card and use another sim card, you will also need. There may be more that too I don't think off the coast of the hand.

  • BlackBerry Smartphone keyboard lock

    I just bought a Blackberry 9800 in my company for his personal use. I find that that's what I think is called a "IT lock" on this subject. I can't remove the blocking the activation/deactivation is blocked. My company say that they can help the account is dead. How can I remove this lock feature? I get a letter from the company stating that I have the phobic quite legitimately.

    I can't seem to access to all Blackberry at all that they would be able to help I know.

    Can someone tell me how to unlock the phone or how to get I touch with someone to Blackberry who could do?

    Thank you

  • Password blackBerry Smartphones active locked on

    Any one out there ideas.  I want to disable my password, but the key activated shows a lock and I cannot reset.  If iI select the only option I get is to change password. If I select what I have to insert a new password.

    is it a company or a personal phone you bought the 2nd hand?

    If it's a telephone connected to a BES server company then your company would use a policy to enforce the requirement of password, so you cannot turn it off.

    If it's a personal phone, purchased 2nd hand she may have an old it policy out there - you have to follow the advice here to remove it.

  • BlackBerry Smartphones Smiley locked model will not be unlocked

    My daughter (including BB is) downloaded a smiley face pattern unlock BB App World and entered a password but the app will not now recognize the password and if the handset is actually locked!  Is there a way to get around this, like the restoration of factory settings?


    You can try one of the following steps:

    Type of incorrect passwords for 10 times and the unit will automatically be dragged to the default factory settings.

    Otherwise, connect your device via USB cable to your laptop / desktop.

    Now open BlackBerry Desktop Software (CD, which is given in the box, install this software first).

    Once connected, restore your device to the default factory settings.
