The program was designed to be as simple as possible, with one goal only: prevent accidental touches to the touch screen because HTC thought it was wise to unlock the phone in your pants. It does not eat a lot of battery, since it just waits untill Windows tells it a call comes in (Answerkeys Disabler actually knows before the HTC software does ). It does not poll in any way to check if it should lock or unlock.

Unmaintained: I'm sorry I have to inform you I don't own a HTC Touch Diamond anymore. I didn't mention it in this start post, but I probably did elsewhere: it broke down on me. After several repairs, the phone company finally sent me a replacement phone. I got so fed up with all the repairs, I decided to move on and get myself another phone.
- v0.5.1 (Windows installer, CAB file)
- Fix for the situation when the LockCallsDuringCalls has the value 0 placing outgoing calls would prevent future incoming calls of being locked (thanks Polluxus and StarMonkee)
- Fixed the shutdown when updating Answerkeys Disabler bug: Answerkeys Disabler will now quit faster during uninstallation and not show the warning message (thanks BerlinTop)
- v0.5 (Windows installer, CAB file)
- Added 5 registy settings which let you tweak the workings of the program
- Again, true AppToDate support (the site hosting the previous XML file would not let me upload a new version of it using the same name)
- Fixed the startup after installation issue: Answerkeys Disabler will now always start after installation, regardless of your ROM language.
- v0.4.1 (Windows installer, CAB file)
- True AppToDate support (v0.4 created the registry key at the wrong location)
- Changed the notification of start-up after installation: if you're not running an WWE ROM, you have to start Answerkeys Disabler manually after installation.
- v0.4 (Windows installer, CAB file)
- Stylus support: When Answerkeys Disabler locks your phone, you can unlock it by pulling out the stylus (or inserting it). After this, you can use all on-screen buttons, and the device will not turn off the screen.
- AppToDate support
- Other device turn-off mechanism: Answerkeys Disabler now simulates pressing the power button. This fixes the wake-up from talk-and-end key after Answerkeys Disabler turns the device off.
- Answerkeys Disabler will now automatically run after installation. Uninstallation does not require shutting down Answerkeys Disabler anymore.
- Created Windows installer for those unconformable with cab files
- v0.3.1 (CAB)
- Changed locking behavior: If the device is on and a call comes in, it will not lock.
- Fixed screen turnoff errors: if called directly after a missed call (within 40 seconds or so), the screen will now turn off once the second call is answered/rejected/missed.
- Added screen turnoff: when during a call the device is turned off, the screen will turn off after the call is hung up.
- v0.3 (CAB)
- Added screen turn off: the screen turns off if it was off before the new call arrived. => Headset support!
- Added application icon (thanx Birkov!)
- v0.2.1 (CAB)
- Fixed the bug where only the first call would be locked
- v0.2 (CAB)
- NOT RECOMMENDED! Often locks the first call ONLY. Use v0.2.1 instead
- Slightly more efficient by using less thread functions
- Fixed the missing A when toggeling the program
- Initial version
- Add unlock by action key option (if possible)
- Support CDMA devices
- Fix locking to german landline numbers
- pop-up a dialog box if Answerkeys Disabler is clicked from the start-menu, indicatng it has started correctly
- Give me some input!
If you like what I'm doing, buy me some coffee to keep me doing it
Have fun with this one!
