The default screen saver on Nokia 5500 Sport is activated instead of a correctly implemented custom screen saver if the keypad of the device is unlocked after the first screen saver activation.

How to reproduce

  1. Open the Themes application and set a custom-made screen saver as the active one.
  2. Go back to the system standby screen, lock the keypad of the device, and wait for screen saver activation.
  3. Dismiss the screen saver from the screen and unlock the keypad.
  4. Wait for the screen saver to activate again.

The default screen saver is erroneously launched in step 4.


Currently there is no workaround. This defect cannot be reproduced with Nokia 5500 Sport (firmware version 3.14).
