Samsung :: Finesse How Do You Activate Security Lock

Sep 12, 2009

Samsung Finesse How do you activate the security lock without having to go through the menu, type in your code, then have it lock.I am not talking about the screen lock button at the top, because when you use that and turn it back on the screen is unlocked and it doesn't require pass code. I'd like to have the screen lock whenever the screen times out, or it comes back out of "locked" mode.On some phones you push a combo of buttons and it locks? any idea?

Samsung :: Impression Phone Lock Reset

Jun 28, 2010

My stepdaughter has a Samsung Impression and she forgot her password to get into her phone. As a result, her phone won't let you past the phone lock screen.

I've tried removing the battery and entering *2767*3855#, but it just say "unsupported character" when I hit the # key. I even tried *2767*2878# and it says the same thing, "unsupported character".

How can I get into this phone? To make matters worse, the calibration on the touch screen is so off that it's virtually unusable in the portrait position.

Samsung :: Omnia - Keyboard - Lock Screen - Address Book - Touch Screen

Apr 22, 2009

I have had the Omnia from Verizon (I believe that's i910) for a couple of weeks now and I am sorry to say that I hate it. This is the first phone that I ever bought that I just can't get to using. I originally picked it because it was the best multipurpose smart phone that Verizon offered and I heard a lot of dissapointing things about the Blackberry Storm. Also, the battery life was supposed to be amazing and it has wifi which the Storm does not.

However, there are certain things that I just hate about the Omnia and I am hoping that you guys might be able to help me out to solve these issues.

1) The keyboard. I have very small fingers and should have not problem with this. I have tried all of the available text input methods and even tried downloading "Zoomboard" but it still takes forever to create a message. I found myself just pulling out my laptop logging on and replying to an email that way since it is much faster.

2) I hated the lock screen. I found it boring looking and tedious to use. So I installed "S2U2" which got rid of the boring part. But it is still tedious because when I receive a call it creates a delay from when I push the answer button and when the call is actually connected. Plus it always tries to reorient it's self with the accelerometer. Which I hate waiting for.

3) I hate the stylus. There has got to be a way to set up the phone so that I never need the stylus. Some of the included apps from Samsung do make it easier but I still find myself whipping it out to use the VZNavigator, Opera, Skyfire, Calendar, file explorer, and email. Not to mention that the stylus is tethered to the phone, looks stupid, and constantly gets in my way (although, I did just read about a case from Brando that may solve this issue.)

4) I hate closing apps with the "X" It is a pain in the butt to touch without the stylus. I find myself starting outside of the screen with my fingernail and then slowly working it in to hit the "X." Plus when you do this the "X" the app doesn't actually close it just runs in the background consuming memory and battery power.

5) The key pad hides and locks every time you make a call. This makes checking voicemail and using automated menus incredibly annoying.

6) The address book sucks. I hate the one that Sumsung installed because it is not very responsive to my finger and often skips right over the letter I am looking up. The search is a nice feature but it requires me to hit another button, then open the keyboard, and either pull out the stylus to type a the name in the search box in portrait mode, or rotate the phone to landscape, wait for it rotate then type the name in the search box with my fingers. The Windows Mobile one is even worse. I find myself just pulling up the keypad then spelling out the name with the alhpanumeric buttons and hoping that only one or two names come up. If more than two does I then have to close the keypad and ever so carefully select the name with my thumbnail.

7) The touch screen and optical mouse respond to everything. And I mean everything. If when I through it in my pocket after I thought I locked it I can feel the haptic feedback working as things are accidently being selected.

Here's the deal. I know this phone has a lot of great potential and I know some people have found a way to solve most of these issues. I just do not have the time or patience to troubleshoot every single one. Also, I am coming from an iPhone which had none of the above issues and was incredibly intuitive to use. However, it sucked for syncing with exchange, and had no ability to manipulate office documents. I would be still using it if my company didn't for a switch from ATT to Verizon. I love how easily the Omnia syncs with my outlook and exchange accounts, I love the wifi ability, the ability to edit office documents, and the fact that there are a million great apps out there for it. I heard there were ways to basically clone the iPhone onto Win Mo which would be awesome. Is there anyone out there willing to help me! Thank you all for your time. I look forward to your feedback.

Samsung Galaxy S II :: Screen Smash / Screen Lock / Can't Get Data Back?

Apr 5, 2012

So as things are perfect and smiley in the world, the way to make your day complete is to drop your brand new samsung galaxy s2 from a pathetically small height and watch as the whole screen shatters to bits. Enough to put anyone in a great mood.Fixing the screen isn't the problem though. 02 have agreed to fix it for me, for a small fee, but they have confirmed that the whole phone will be flashed before hand. This is not good. I have a lot of memories on the phone that i would like back.I have connected the phone to samsung keis, however, since the screen locked, the dam thing won't let me in to my own data. Understandably this is to ensure absolutle security to your sh** but I can't help wondering why samsung didn't install an option that allows you to unlock the phone from your computer. really need some help figuring out how I can get my sh** back. If anyone knows how to bypass the screen lock or just refresh it. Any advice would be greatly appriciated. I'm not in a great rush since my mum refuses to pay for the fix. and it'll take me a few weeks to save up.i can't unlock the phone because i can't see the screen and i think the touch pad is bust as well.

Nokia :: 5800 Does Factory Reset Also Reset Sim Lock?

I have a 5800, which has been unlocked by the provider (Tmobile) so I can use an 02 sim. The phone currently has the expired certificate problem, and as suggested in the forums a factory reset may fix this. I know that most of the phones setting will also be reset. But will a factory reset also reset the sim lock, and lock the phone back to Tmobile?

Samsung Galaxy S II :: Changed Screen Lock Password?

Dec 5, 2011

I somehow managed to change my screenlock password, it used to be a four-digit code.I had the phone in my pocket for a while and after that I can't get in.s there anything I can do besides reseting to factory settings? If I connect the phone to my computer I can't reach any data on the phone so I can't save pictures and stuff like that so I'm not very keen on reseting the whole thing. read somewhere that I might be able to use my gmail-account but I don't have that option. When I type in the wrong password five times it just says I have to wait for 30 seconds. Over and over again..

Samsung Galaxy S II :: Folders And Lock Screen Query?

Aug 8, 2012

Is it possible to have anything other than the clock on the Lockscreen, an you have a widget on there or something?and Secondly:I'm not too sure if this is the right way to go about this but being a bit of a novice with respect to smart phones I'm open to other suggestions.I'm off on holiday soon and want to take a few audiobooks with me. So what I thought was that I create a Folder on my Home screen called Holiday Books and stick in the audiobooks that I want to take with me.

Q1) How do I put the (MP3) audiobooks into this Holiday Books folder?

Q2) How do I associate a particular music player with the audiobook files as I don't use the music player provided on the phone?

Samsung Galaxy S II :: Can't Receive Calls Or Lock Screen

May 29, 2011

Anyway, last night I set my alarm as I normally do before bed and this morning I over slept by a disgusting amount because somehow all of my apps had spontaneously crashed while I was asleep! The force close notification kept coming up for a number of different applications before I was forced to simply turn it off. When I turned it on again a few seconds later, most of my settings had been wiped along with much of the data kept on the actual phone memory. Some stuff was still there, like all my apps, my connections and passwords, but my home screen was defaulted, as were my message tone, ring tone and input settings. Also gone were any phone numbers I had stored on the phone itself as well as all of my inbox messages.

So, I went into the settings to put my screen lock back on because I noticed that had been reset, too. I did the normal routine, picked the pattern, confirmed it and so on. But after I put my phone down and locked the screen, when I picked it back up again and pressed the home key to activate the screen, it was just unlocked. I didn't have to input the unlock pattern. However, when I went back into the settings to make sure they were all okay, it made me enter the unlock pattern to get into it! How odd.

IPhone :: Lock Info And Annoying Apple SMS Alert On Lock Screen

Aug 27, 2010

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?

Nokia :: E71 Reset Lock Code

Jan 15, 2009

I've just upgraded the doftware on my phone to v200.21.118 and all seemed to be be well. Phone rebooted and then went through the set-up stage of asking which country, city, time etc.It the asks for the lock code and so I eneter the code I had changed it to ages ago, which doesn't work. So I figure that maybe the software update had reset the lock code to the original '12345' but this doesn't work either.Anyone have any idea how I can reset this? I'm now unable to use my phone! :-( I seem to remember on some old Nokias that you could enter like a master code to override this.

Samsung Galaxy S II :: Screen Lock: Only The "password" Option Is Available On New Android 2.3.4 And 2.3.5?

Oct 12, 2011

I'm having a problem with the new Android, 2.3.4 while using ActiveSync to connect to my corporete email on Exchange Server ... A corporete policy gets pushed to my phone and I need to accept it. OK, no problem ... I accept it, but the Lock screen settings ( under Settings -> Location And Security -> Change Lock Screen ) only allows the "Password" option, saying the other options,e.g. the PIN way is remotely disabled by administrator, although that is NOT the case. I've double checked with our system admins on this.Our system admins are NOT forcing the "Password" option ... they're OK with just using the PIN, and I had it like that, in the old 2.3.3 version !For this setup ... this will display the long PASSWORD for lock-screen, instead of just a PIN which is what I prefer to to use instead:

* Android 2.3.4
* gingerbread.xwki4 on Samsung Galaxy S2
* Exchange 2007 sp3

This policy is NOT forced by our admins, since this is the policy:Here are my complete Password tab settings on the server, so you can see the admins are NOT requesting this long password ( PIN is enough! ):

Require Password - checked Require alphanumeric password - unchecked <--- attention, this is UNCHECKED.
Enable password recovery - checked
Require encryption on the device - checked


But with this update, you need the following for the unlock screen of ActiveSync for Exchange Server:6 letters, and one number in the previous version ( 2.3.4 ) you needed 6 letters, TWO numbers and one sign I want to be able to use ONLY 4 letters PIN, as it is allowed on our network, as you can see in our policy just pasted above in this thread!
