Just got the LG800 through Solo Mobile. In the manual, under common features, it lists Lock Mode, saying this mode allows the phone to always lock and require a password. Someone in another forum mentioned this by holding the # key but this does nothing. Holding * goes into vibrate mode. In security, under lock all I see is Unlock, Lock Now, Lock on Power on but that's it. Am I missing something? I was under the impression I could have the phone always lock, or at least press a key to make it lock immediately so people can't use it,
When I lock my SGS II i would expect all the buttons to lock! However the power button function remain active and its far too easy to accidently power off my phone or set it into flight mode.Does anyone know how to disable this "feature" ??
Later version of OS 5 have changed the functions of the old Mute/Standby and Keyboard Lock keys. The new functionality seems to be that the Must key is now a dedicated Mute key and the Lock key lockes the keyboard.
My question is, what has happened to the old Standby mode? Holster mode still works fine and so does screen dimming/blanking.
How then do I put my phone into the incredibly useful and battery saving mode of Standby? Is there another button combination that I have not managed to find that still does this?
RIM had a KB article about this a couple of months ago but it gave no specific information about how to use Standby Mode and in any event this particular KB documan=t has now been removed.
I'm hoping someone can help me. I have a 1st gen 4gb iphone. I want to unlock it but, my phone doesn't have a lock/power button so i cant put it into dfu mode; that means i cant use winpwn or pwnage tool. I have already tried ziphone. Please help me!
My iPhone 5C on lock mode, when i normally lock it after using , go on dark mode, like coma, and i need to click on main button and lock button in order to restart and open it again.
the day before yesterday i did to it a full factory reset with fresh copy of IOS 7.1.2 without recover any backup, it works normally and that's make me happy, until today the same thing return to it, the screen turn on dark, I try to open it by lock button without any result, so i click on main button and lock button in order to restart and open again.Now i put Auto-Lock(never) so its open without any problem!
Does anybody know if the mandatory phone locking can be disabled when changing to the Offline mode? If I remember right, in the older Communicators you used to have a Flight Mode that used to leave the PDA side of the phone open while turning the connections and antenna off (basically what the Offline mode is for).Why does the phone lock itself when turning to Offline mode when there's a separate 'Lock Phone' option just below it in the Profiles list?
Just a quick question; which is better for saving battery when my Blackberry is sat in my pocket - Keyboard Lock or Sleep Mode? I don't use the holster. Also, what are the main apps that kill battery on the BB and any tips to save battery?

Possible to lock an iPhone 5s screen whilst playing a video synced from iTunes? I can get the screen to lock and show the video and a play-button, same as with the iPod app in lock-screen, however, I can't get the vid to actually play. I read an old post here that the video file needs to be defined as 'Video Clip' rather than 'Movie' in iTunes, but I'm not sure how to do this or if this advice is even valid still.
I have a Curve 8330 and am wondering if there is a way to get the Keypad Lock and Standby Mode to function together from one of the convenience keys. I currently have Standby Mode on the Mute Key on top and Keypad Lock on the left convenience key.
I've had this problem for the past few weeks.When my BlackBerry 8703e smart phone is in lock mode and I get a missed call, it does not show any notification that I have received a missed call until after I unlock the phone. Once I unlock the phone, it would say how many missed calls I have and I can view it from there. But while on lock mode, it shows absolutely no indication that I have a missed call.
Also, while the phone is ringing, the LED turns red, but when the ringing stops, it immediatly goes back to green.Any help in resolving this issue would be appreciated. I have tried restarting and even removing the battery, neither of which had any luck in fixing this.
is there a method to lock or protect data mode from turning on? I realize you can turn it off in com manager , but is there a way to require a password to change the status from on to off, or have a pop up before it enters data mode that you must ok, because it will automatically turn on if i use a program that requires data connection.

I am currently having issues with my Atrix 4G since the start of the New Year (2012). I have had the phone since July with no problems, but not i hear and sense feedback, but it takes over a minute for the phone to reawaken from sleep mode (screen to turn on to the unlock screen).
Once it does, I see the cellular signal strength icon showing it was disconnected and trying to re-acquire the cell netwrok (not the wifi part, the AT&T part).
This long delay puts a real damper on how I can use the phone to make a quick call, or snap a random photo to capture a moment.
Once I'm in, however, it'll work fine for a while, and then if I am NOT using wifi, it may lock up the screen refresh (I get haptic and audio feedback on my taps until the buffer fills, but screen freezes and even turing the unit off does not shut the screen) and sometimes it'll be minutes before I see the cell signal thing do the same thing, or I just get tired of waiting and pull the battery.
if this is a settings thing or a hardware or OS issue. My phone is under warranty, but I don't want to swap it out without knowing if there's a fix. I hate to get a new phone and find out it's happening again.
I have a firm-issued BlackBerry that frequently locks itself after long periods of inactivity. I also choose to manually lock the phone from time to time. When coming out of lock mode and needing to enter my password, when in portrait mode, I sometimes get the MultiTap keypad and sometimes get the the full keypad. There doesn't appear to be any consistency in which one the BlackBerry will choose to offer me.
If I have a choice, I would prefer to use the SureType keyboard or even the full keyboard every time if possible. Can anyone lend any insight as to how to set this default keyboard when coming out of lock mode?
I'm a dedicated BB users and have been using many models over the years, but this is the first annoying problem i encounters with the 9700.i bought 2 tMo 9700 last week for me and my wife. when i got home, i updated the os of my 9700 to .586
the problem started when the battery level reach 40%. whenever i'm in a call or the bb in keypad lock mode, it suddenly shut off itself. and then i can't turned it on unless i plugged in the charger. but after it turned on, i can unplugged the charger and the bb would be normal until the battery reach 0%.
i thought i was a battery problem with my 9700, so i tried using my wife battery, and it was still the same problem coming out. so then i thought it was an OS problem, so i upgrade it to .593, and it still gave me the same problem. then i tried downgrade it to .578, and it still the same.then my guess was it was a faulty 9700. but i tried the software upgrade to my wife's BB and then she had the same problem as i am.
what's wrong with our 9700's? can anyone help us? i have been looking all over the internet but found no solution.we have the same apps installed beside add ons: ubertwitter, opera mini, google sync, googlemaps,foyage, blackcorpo theme.
here's a problem I searched for and got nothing back. In lock mode, The options are unlock, place call, place emergency call, and cancel.Had the phone in my front pocket. Later I took the phone out to make a call and I had VM from the Sheriffs department saying they were getting an emergency call from my number, if I still had an emergency call "number" or 911 again. Evidently the place emergency call got selected and the screen clicked in my pocket while it was selected. Any ideas or settings that can prevent this?
I UPDATED MY MY 4 TO NEW VERSION AND AFTER LOCKING THE PHONE I CANT OPERATE THE CAMERA IN THE LOCK MODE AND I HAVE TO UNLOCK MY PHONE TO OPERATE THE CAMERA AND ALSO THE OPTIONS APPPEAR TO BE UPSIDE DOWN SOMETIMES. WOULD THERE BE A SOLUTION FOR THIS? PHONE IS FACTORY UNLOCKED AND I HAVE RESET THE PHONE TOO. STILL PROBLEM NOT FIXED.
I'm sure this has been around for a while, but since loading .113 from .75 I noticed that while in lock mode, the only way to bring up the screen to see how many messages you have waiting is to hit the end key.A minor gripe, but it's easier to just touch the screen so you don't have to pull it out of your pocket all the way =P.They probably did this to conserve battery life but the screen stayed off in my pocket anyway due to the capacitive touch screen.
I carry a lot of personal info on my phone.It's encrypted.I have the lock code set & auto lock set for 10 mins... works fine.Why can't I invoke this lock manually ? .. so sometimes 5 / 10 / 15 mins is fine.. whatever. If I want to lock it NOW . why can't I ? besides it not being an option Would be nice to do a manual lock with PIN or lock code too.. like the normal key lock.
