Xperia Mini/pro :: Use Keyboard To Unlock The Phone Instead Of "slide To Unlock"?
Jun 26, 2012
my touch screen cracked after I droppet my Xperia Mini Pro on the pavement. I can still see everything on the screen, but when I try to unlock the phone by sliding the touch screen, there's no reply. The keyboard however works fine, so what I'm wondering is if there's any way for me to use the keyboard to unlock my phone?
SE/Google wants to make the slide to unlock available, but the way as it is currently implemented is very annoying.The on/off button already locks the screen nicely and I really don't need another obstacle to pass.On the other hand if you use slide to unlock the screen should not be black ever. I know the X10 mini battery is just not good enough for that...
mi Xperia Mini Pro's touchscreen stopped working today. I cannot enter the phone to backup my data because I cannot swipe to unlock. Surely some genius from Google thought about this? Is there a backdoor or a way to enter the phone and use it with the keyboard?
When ever I try to unlock (dragging lock button from left to right) , I am unable to unlock in one go. It is taking multiple attemts to unlock my phone.I also observed that when I get to call, to cancel dragging the icon from right to left this is required multiple attempts.i.e many time dragging icon from right to left.
I don't know whether it is software problem or hardware. I have tried the repair operation also. my xperia neo is uptodate and running 2.3.4 os.I also tried to un install apps but I couldn't find any difference.Also once I unlock, those 5 screens, I can scroll inbetween and can touch home button. But when I long press on the screen to add widget/folder I am unable to do it as soon as I unlock phone. It is taking some time to respond.
As I purchased this phone in UK and using it in India, I am not sure how much service I can get in india from SE.I have bill for the mobile too.in other posts somebody told me to remove yahoo and i did the same but didn't find any difference.in short the touch scence is not responsive during unlock and for a while once get the home screen. I also installed andvance task killer app and killing apps frequently that also not making any help.
A few times a week it becomes almost impossible to answer calls as you cannot slide the unlock across the screen. Latest android 2.1 on phone, have tried repairing this and using service / app killers. It is not a dirty screen as often once you have missed the call you can unlock the screen easily.
My Xperia Mini Pro has a fault with the keyboard - when I slide it out it activates, ie the background light comes on but then it goes out. Sometimes it stays on a for a few seconds whilst fully open but then goes off. Nothing physical has happened to the phone and it doesn't seem to be a loose connection or anything. I've tried updating the software but that didn't help.
I have an x10 mini pro which has been great until today (on android 1.6) All of a sudden some of the keys on the slide out keyboard stopped working. Did a factory reset which didnt solve the problem. Decided to upgrade to android 2.1 and now none of the keys on the slide out keyboard work. Tried to reinstall android 2.1 and still doesnt work. Also tried the repair bit on pc companion.
my xperia mini pro slide out keyboard has turned into an azerty keyboard after updating to ice cream sandwich ,i've checked the layout of the azerty keyboard ,even the symboles have changed places as it was an azerty keyboard, how can i return it to qwerty ? ps :i've tried repairing via pc companion ,it didn't work ..
In my brand new xperia x10 mini pro the slide out keyboard keys are mixed up - instead of "," I get "?", instead of "." I get "?" etc. I run software update, software repair - nothing changed. I get only 2 types of Chineese as Input method.

Im using an iPhone 3GS MC Model 3.1.2 jailbreaked & unlocked by blackra1n. Well, here's what happened. I installed androidlock 2.0.1 through the sinful iphone repo on cydia. Had fun with the lock for a while and now I just want the old default slide to unlock back, so I removed androidlock. After that slide to unlock won't come back, its "tap to unlock" instead. Its only in the lock screen, calls and slide to power off are there. Tried rebooting the phone, reinstalling then removing androidlock a couple of times, installed 2.0.2 androidlock and removed, still tap to unlock.
How to move the 'slide to unlock' bar up? id like to reposition it up under the clock, it would feel more natural there. Id like to keep stock unlocking but would be ok with a tap to unlock or it being invisible. It would just be more comfortable under the clock.
phone turns on, but will not unlock. Nothing to do with passcode. It wont slide to turn off. Have to hold off and home button to shut down.Was on phone with apple from someone elses device. Total backup and restore
Got an iPhone 4s, woke up today and I'm not able to slide to unlock any of my notifications. I can't even turn my phone off because my lock button broke ages ago so I've been using the assistive touch to lock or turn off my phone but I can't do that now as Screen won't let me do anything.
I've updated my mini pro today wid icecream sandwich, but one feature is missing, i cant find face unlock option, while i see other people have posted pics with that option. Why is it that my cell aint showing that feature
