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.
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.
go to your options and go under your password you gotta set a password now too get it back for the 8530
