    Strange goings on with Nokia 6280 key lock

    I've just got a Nokia 6280 as an upgrade, and I have to say up to now I'm very pleased with it (apart from the battery life, though I usually stick my phone on charge every night anyway so it doesn't really bother me that much).

    But this morning it had me very confused. I bought a pouch for the phone yesterday, and when I went to put the phone into it, the key lock turned off. I thought I'd maybe hit a button by accident or slid the phone open slightly, so I tried again, and as soon as I got the top part of the phone into the pouch, off went the key lock. I thought I'd found a magic trick or something

    This went on for a while, I tried turning the phone upside down without the pouch near, and nothing happened. I tried running other things down the phone past the speaker, replicating what happens when I put it into the pouch, again, nothing. So I tried running the pouch down the phone in the same way, and off went the key lock.

    It took me a while, but I think now I've figured out what is going on. The pouch I bought has in it a magnet, I'm assuming that when you slide the phone open, rather than there being a switch inside that tells the phone its opened, there is probably a magnet inside (the speaker possibly), when the magnets part, the keylock turns off. Hence, when I run the magnet past the speaker area of the phone, it gets confused and thinks its opened.

    Or at least I hope this is whats going on, and that I'm not actually losing my mind. Can anyone confirm?

    Hi, the magnet is doing the trick that's for sure and regarding the battery you should definitely check the charger, I had the same problem and changing my charger helped.
