LG :: NEON No Way To Automatically Lock Or Require Security Code?
May 3, 2010
I have ATT version of the NEON and I would like it to automatically lock and thus require a security code to dial out or look at my text messages, etc. etc.So for example I would like for it to require a security code everytime I unlock the automatic key lock. (the key lock doesn't require a code just have to open it or hit the yes button). You can set the phone to require the security code (default is 0000) when you power up the phone, or when a new Sim Card is put in or immediately.
Immediately would be ok if it stayed on but the immediately option only works once.So short of going through the menus and setting it immediately each time or powering the phone off and then back on Does anyone know a way to do a lock on the Neon? Don't most phones have a lock feature?
I set up active sync for my C7, note that this implies automatic changes of your phones security settings, e.g. you are forced to set the security code of your phone. The timeout is fixed to 15 min, after you need to enter the code again if you want to use the phone!When seeting the security code you are forced to enter digit AND letters!I first tought it is a our corporate security rule, but IT department said no, it is the phone.Even worse when entering the security code it does allow only digits.If you keep pressing the lower right key, the alphabetic keys appear and you may enter a letter.(if you manage it you will need to send your phone to Nokia care, because it does not start anymore)Now when ever I want to access my C7, e.g. check my email, I need to enter the security code - accepted. However entering digits AND letters every time is quite annoying.
The phone froze and so it restarted but now whenever I try typing my security lock code in the phone tells me that I have to wait 5 minutes, as I have typed it wrong in 5 times. I wait 5 mins but I keep getting the same message when the security lock code I am typing is 100% the correct one.
I've lost the 4 digit user selected security lock code which is required to reset the phone.Virgin says Samsung should help recover the code and Samsung says Virgin should help recover the code.A while back, I found a code on the web that allowed me to go into a service menu which listed among other things the lock code. I can't find any information on how to get back into that menu.
By the way, yes, I tried the last 4 digits of the phone number, 0000, 9999, 1234.If anyone knows how to get into the service menu on this phone
The only codes I've found so far are:##786# which gets into an info menu but doesn't have the lock code.##33284# which requires a 6-digit security code which I don't know.
I changed mine security code, then after a while to check if I remember it correct I went again to the place where it can be changed but pressed cancel so not to change it again, now the phone does not approve my security code at all, neither the old one, any clue what happened?
i bought a nokia c3-00 yesterday, on changing the security code the phone now ain't unlocking using the new security code. I have tried all the procedures of turing in off, letting it stay idle but the phone aint accepting the new security code or the default one...
I have all my data on the phone and now i cant access it. What should I do?
I have forgotten the security code of my nokia x3-02. I tried unlocking it with master code but i found out that the master code solution works only for DCT-3 and DCT-4 phones. I really want to know if there is any hope for unlocking it because i really like this phone
ive just updated my nokia x3 but when i updated it ovi suite restored my phone using an old backup file. this backup file held a diffrent security code which ive forgotten. ive spoke to nokia and the care point in sailsbury. the repair point says i shouldnt be charged for the repair. im awaing a responce from nokia, about them charging me if i use the repair option on the website. I dont feel i should pay as ive followed the instructions that ovi suite gave me. i think the repair should be free. i was really shocked after the update and then my phone asked me 4 the code. i thought that the nokia software updates were fully tested before realsed to be installed into customers phones. i cant belive it
The phone is currently locked (security code) and it is asking me to type in "blackberry." Unfortunately, the "a" button does not work and I am unable to unlock the phone. I have tried a hard reset (removing the battery) but have not been successful.
I got my kid a new cell phone to replace an old VX8300. Before putting it away or giving it away I was going to wipe out all the old information and hopefully reset it to factory settings.Unfortunately it appears as though one of his friends changed the security code from the default last 4 of the cell number to something else without telling him. Very funny practical joke. Unfortunately my kid has no idea when this happened and his friend does not remember what he changed it to.
I tried every 4 digit combo I can think of and nothing worked. Verizon told me there was nothing they could do. They say they have no master code to reset it and they can't plug it in and reset it manually either.Is this true? Is this phone locked forever? I don't want to figure out what the old code was. I don't care to. All I want to do is to reset the entire thing. Is there no way to do this once that code is changed? If so then Verizon and LG should make that abundantly clear to people because the odds of someone changing that code and completely hosing their phone is not that low.
Every time I try to sign into my App Store it asks me for my security code for my credit card. I'm putting in the correct code but it will not work. Is there any other kind of code I should be using for this??? I just want access to my apps?
I purchased this phone before 3 months.Never used or changed security code.One week ago I updated the sotware using nokia suite..But afterthat when restarting the phone , it asks security code..i typed the default seurity 12345..but it doesn't accepts. change or reset.Product Code-059B7V9 Model-C7-00 Type-675
