    guys

    when u want to unlock phone before drawing the patten, u need to slide an inverted triangle from left hand to right hand side......

    so now suddenly the style of moving it became an mirror image ...i mean now i have to move it from right hand to left hand.....i found this wierd with my x10

    is there a way to reset it back to original style

    The same question is asked quite alot on here...

    Its simple, put your finger at the top of the slide unlock, and drag it to the other side :)

    Alot of Xperia X10 users have had this problem in the past, even me, and once I found out how to change it, I felt so stupid because of how simple it is :D

    Or R.T.B.M

    Read The Bloody Manual :)

    I think that one has tripped every X10 owner up :p

    is it in the manual?

    Not too sure that this isn't another brilliant move by SE to further confuse all it's customers.

    My job is pretty great. You don't work there... th
    Canada.
    Not sure if it's in the manual, but I figured out how to switch it by myself just playing with it. I wanted to see if it would slide the other way if I put my finger up top, and bam, it changed, haha.

    Don't people toy around with their phones seeing what you can get it to do? :)

    By the way, there's no such thing as an inverted triangle. Triangles don't have an up or down. It's just a three-sided shape regardless how you spin it.

    How do you think I got thanked so many times? :p

    When I first got the phone I would play like buggery with it or read a question on here and pick the phone up and play with it till I figured it out.

    But then I know there are people like my mum who have my 3 year old daughter shout at her "You just press the X button Nanny" I have lost count of the times she has asked me how to send a text from her phone and now has instructions written down on how to send texts, enter contacts and how to take pictures! Bless her :rolleyes:
