I found out how to lock the keypad on the 9700 after this new screwy update to the 9700.To lock keypad press and hold "A" for 1-2 seconds or push the "lock button" at top left edge of phone.To unlock the keypad go to the very top left corner ridge on the very top of the phone and press the "lock" button.Will take some getting used to but will prevent unwanted calls while holstered or in purse.The best way I found to lock keypad without a password.
I have a blackberry bold 97000 v 188.8.131.524(platform)184.108.40.206.Since the past 2 days my top left phone lock button is not working.when i googled it some said that you need to revert back to your old os to make it work.Is this a confirned bug in the new os?
Is there anyway to revert back to the old way of unlocking the bold, like from early 5.0 OS? like when you were supposed to hold * and the call button, because I absolutely despise this new mute button procedure and my mute button on my bold is already becoming unresponsive.Basically I'm wondering if perhaps there's a application that can switch them or maybe even a way to configure a different button on my bold to mute because as it is the default button (top left of the bold) is pretty much becoming unresponsive on my phone and I don't really want to get locked out.
With the new 5.0's rolling out, our keyboard feature seems to be done away with. Some of us, like me, do not have the best mute button. If I don't hit mine just right it doesn't work. Sometimes it may take 5-6 presses.
Maybe I just can't find it on my 8530, but is there an auto lock feature on this blackberry? Sometimes I forget to and it would be nice if it didn't pocket dial anyone on accident.I know there's auto dimming of the screen, if it locked also when it did that, that would be awesome.
Just upgraded from bold 9000 to 9700. I upgraded my OS to version .743. After that, I stopped getting visual voice mail notifications. The message is there when I dial "1", but doesn't show up at all under the VVM menu, nor do I get the visual indication(s). It did work on the AT&T OS out of the box. Second issue with this O.S.- phone does not lock when it is in the holster. I have to believe both these issues are with the .743 version of the OS, but I may be missing something. I've read others with the VVM problem, not none of the threads seem to offer a solution except to say that AT&T WAS having issues with this back in November.
Can anyone help me? I am trying to tether my BB Bold 9700 to windows 7. I have unl data plan but not "tethering". My BB desktop software does not have the modem feature. Is there a way to do it? If so how?
Can't get Activity Log to pick up any results. Use feature heavliy with 8350 model and can't get it to work on the 9700. AT&T is carrier and current software is V220.127.116.115 and software is enterprise server based. Any suggestions here?
I seem to remember seeing this somewhere before, is there a way to disable the annoying auto-suggest feature during voice dialing? You know, when you voice dials and the automated voice comes off saying "next time say name... "

I upgraded my phone with the newer software (available from the Sticky above) and am hating it. My "send/share" feature doesn't work on pics, the phone has been running slow, internet has been touchy, and a whole host of other dislikes. Can I DOWNGRADE my software? Or am I stuck?
I have a problem with my Blackberry and would be grateful if anyone knows what the problem is.I have only my Blackberry 9700 bold for 1 month or so.I am unable to lock my keypad by using the lock key on top of the phone. This has happened before but after charging my phone it started to work again. I have turned my phone on and off, tried charging it and the button still doesn't work. Although the keypad will lock when I put it into the leather case.Do you think it is a problem with my blackberry and I should return it? Or is this a problem people have had before and if so, how do I fix it?
Is there a way to disable the lock and mute buttons on the top of the BlackBerry Bold 9700? I just received my new windshield cradle that grips it from top and bottom, and the buttons are invariable pressed accidentally for a variety of reasons. Perhaps an application that can shut them off, or some type if setting?
Since my last software update on my BB 9700 I can't lock my keyboard.Now I have v18.104.22.1683 (Platform 22.214.171.124).The Icon "Lock keyboard" is not longer on the desktop and I can't find an alternate to lock my keyboard.Why? I want lock my keyboard.What can I do?
I just upgraded to the bold 9700 running OS: v126.96.36.1996 1. When I go to view pictures and hit menu I don't have the option to email/mms the picture, I have to go to Compose email, attach file and look for the picture, why is it like this? Is there something I did wrong or a way to fix this? 2. I don't have an option for keyboard lock. With my 8900 I set my left smart key to lock the keyboard and you have to hit * and call to unlock it. I know rim removed it so is there an app that can do this? When I hit the lock button on the top it locks it but it has unlocked several times in my pocket already and I don't want to set a password.
I have a BB Bold 9700 white. I recently downloaded a couple of apps from appworld and they ran fine.The thing is my network company is 3 and personally I think they are S*** to be honest. The network keeps going onto 'SOS calls only' alot of the time so I called the company up and they asked me to reboot my BB. After archiving all my apps in appworld I rebooted it and guess what...all the apps disappeared.Downloaded appworld again to check if they were on it but no luck. They were however on my memory card but the thing is it says it cant open the file. All the files end in '.cod.rem' and they are all 'forward locked' whatever that means. Anyone know what's going on and how to get the apps working again?
So my wife and I just picked up two new 9700s in white and black from T-Mobile with their buy-1-get-1 offer We're both already blackberry users. I was upgrading from a Pearl 8120, and she had a Curve 8320.After letting them charge for a while I finally fired them up to start playing with them.My first goal is to set them up as similar to our old phones as possible.
I checked the OS'es that shipped with each one and my black 9700 had 188.8.131.520 and hers had 184.108.40.2066. So, I went to upgrade mine.But, while playing with some of the settings before upgrading I noticed that I was able to set my left convenience key to lock the keyboard on my 9700 but not on hers.In fact, the white 9700 that shipped with 220.127.116.116 didn't even have the lock keyboard icon in any of the menu screens at all.
I upgraded my OS to 18.104.22.1686 and then went to check the left convenience key nothing.Went into settings and where it was previously set to Lock Keyboard, was now set to "Nothing".Is there no Lock Keyboard feature in OS 22.214.171.1246? or am I seriously missing something?
I have had Blackberry for over 4 years and got so used to the keypad icon to lock and unlock by pressing *send and now I downloaded newest upgrade os>743 and now that icon and feature is gone and its pissing me off, anyone know if or how I can get it back. (If it ain't broken, why think to fix it)
I have been given my new 9700 device. Great! But I like to switch languages and before I used the ALT-ENTER shortcut to do this. Now, when I try this shortcut, it locks the BB Does anyone know how I can disable this? I've gone to Languages and changed the following:
Is there an "auto" keypad lock in the bold 9700? by that a mean can you set it to auto lock the keypad after a certain time of no use like the nokia and other phones, The only way I have found to lock the keypad is with the button on the top left.
