Had this phone for 4 days so far. LOVING the battery life.
Most Nokia users are used to the left soft touch key followed by the * which is generally in the lower left corner on most phones. So, if you're used to that sequence the way I am, it also still exists on the E71. Top left 'soft touch' key followed by quick press of the triangle looking key in the lower left corner also produces a lock and unlock function. Top left bottom left. Easy as that. You're way works too but I would spend too long looking for the * in the middle of all the keys. I can lock it w/o even looking at the phone using top left bottom left.

Now I need to find an autolock program from this phone. I had one for the E70 and am not sure if it's the same one or not. Haven't had time to look.
