7610: no more able to unlock the keypad. Help please!!!

Hi everybody,

I have a 7610 since a week and found it wonderful until yesterday:

"I am unable to unlock the keypad!!!"

Its' crazy! i only use Nokia phones since 4-5 years. I previously had 3310, 3410, 6610, 6600 and now a 7610. I am used to nokia, but i have never seen a weird problem like this:

When i power up the phone it lock immediately its keypad by itself. When i try to press "unlock" then "*", the phone don't react to the "*" key!

I have check under the keypad to see if there was dust, water or something. But i have found the keypad contacts and everything else in the phone is fully clean.

So, because the * key don't work, i cannot do a master reset with the "green" + "3" + "*" trick. I have test it and nothin happen!! It's crazy.

Did someone ever seen this problem? Does anyone have an idea to reset the phone or unlock the keypad via a computer? It'll piss me off to send it to Nokia because they don't offer support for the 7610 here in Canada. I'll have to send it to the states...

Thank you very much in advance!

Max

I know this is possibly very basic, but do you think it has anything to do with the security autolock function?
