I got the same thing, too. Turns out the new OS moved the unlock key to the 'mute' button located on top of your phone. It took me a while to figure it out. g/l sir

thanks for the right answer,  but the icon is still a quicker move rather than the re-use of the top button. again appreciate ur reply.

I had the same problem - the lock is now the "A" key - you'll see a little padlock diagram on the button - push that key and the phone will lock - to unlock you need to push the mute button which is on the top of the phone.  Another button I couldn't find easily. Hope this helps.
