    Exclamation Nokia 5800 Slide Lock Not Working Properly??

    I have a Nokia 5800, and I was wondering if when you slide the lock on the side down, is the screen supposed to unlock instantly?

    I find myself sliding it back up, and then down again slightly harder, sometimes maybe like 5 tries, until it unlocks, or to lock it.

    Is there something wrong with the switch?

    I've experienced this before...I think there's a way for the slider, the screen backlight and the lock functionality to get out of sync.

    I found for me, it tends to happen when you get a text message or call and you grab the phone to look at it and the screen hasn't gone off yet, you then slide the slider to unlock the phone but to turn off the backlight, then you slide it again a few times to get it into the "correct" state where the screen is on and the touchscreen is unlocked....

    Well, the thing was that it was EVERY time. I had to slide it really hard or quite a few times to get it to lock/unlock, no matter what. It wasn't a single slide.

    Anyhow, I sent it back and have a new one on the way.
