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!
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?
I just updated the latest software to my bb 9700, upon undating i notice that the "key lock" key and the "standy key" located on top of the phone is not functioning anymore. is that any ways that I can i activate back both the keys? or how do i lock my phone with your latest software.
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.
My iphone stock on recovery mode and i have broken lock buttun.i tried all the program that takes you out of recovery mode but nothing helped..the only way that i can get my iphone back is to put it in dfu mode but as i said i don't have lock button so i can't. how can i put my iphone on dfu without lock button?
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.

I installed LockInfo a while ago. I got everything working fine, downloaded it and plugins fine. I got them all from the same repo as I was advised to do that, and everything seemed to be working fine. Everything was up to date etc.
I received an SMS, and instead of it appearing under the SMS on LockInfo, which it does, it appears as well by the annoying Apple notification box.
I still want my phone to light up when I received a text message and the text message to be displayed under the SMS tab in LockInfo, but how do I get rid of the Apple notification box? I saw when configuring the app there was some thing about quick replying to texts and there was a list to choose form. Would any of those get rid of the Apple alert?
I noticed that after upgrading to 5.0 when the lock button is pressed the screen does not always lock. Sometimes the image will come up as if it is locked and then it'll immediately go away. So then I have to press the lock button again and hope that it works the second time if I'm lucky.
I have a brand new Nokia E63 (same as E71). My memory card is suddenly corrupted, but I managed to fix it. I believe the source of the problem is the Remote Lock and the Device Lock of the unit.The problem started after I enabled the Device Lock and Remote Lock of my E63 unit. After a couple of hours, I tried opening my apps in the memory card. To my surprise, it's corrupted! I didn't panic because I'm confident I could retrieve the contents of the card with a memory reader device. But when I inserted my memory card to my PC, the card is unreadable. I had a feeling that the card must had been badly corrupted. But how? I just got this unit almost a day ago. I didn't do anything odd. I'm an OOP-Design Patterns oriented programmer so I'm not newbie when it comes to best practices.
As I searched the web, I found that there are people who encountered the same exact problem. And their guess is also the Device Lock.So what I did is I disabled the Remote Lock and the Device Lock feature. I checked my memory card and it's still corrupted!I turn off my unit and turn it on again, but sadly it's still corrupted.I removed the memory card while the unit is on and then reinserted the card, and it worked.
In summary, to solve this memory corrupted problem, try disabling the Remote Lock and Device Lock feature. To disable the Device Lock, revert the password to "12345" (Do not type the quotes). Remove the memory card (Use the remove memory card feature of your unit!). Re-insert the card to your unit and problem should be fixed.

I bought a original packed SIM-lock-free Bold9900 and discovered that it is a German Telekom locked device. How can this be ? As a Vodafone customer this Bold9900 is completly useless - Vodafone cannot connect my Bold9900 and I see the T of Telekom Why does RIM not have a quality assurance ? All my friends - most of them are not iPhone fans - are laughing about me because I am / was stil a Blackberry fan.
i just bought a new curve 8900 at the beginning of june. ive never dropped it, spilled anything on it or anything, am a real neat freak with the device. For some reason, when i press the lock button it takes a little longer than usual to register the 'lock' and sometimes when im on the phone i hear static through the earpiece...anyone have any ideas? my blackberry button and back button also click after i press and release the button....
