    oky thnks for ur kind rply but still have problem

    1. in some N73 mobile i saw, when u give a password to memory card so whenever u want to open the memory card on the same device(N73) it will ask u for password and that i want too, when ever i enter to the memory card it will ask a password from me.

    some time my friend take my n73 mobile from me, and there is some personal data in my memory card so they can enter in the memory card and thus it is not secure.



    2. as u told me that fallow the step for the auto lock code,i did so but when it ask for code i give it 12345 but it didnt work, and i hv buy new mobile and i didnt changed the code, so wht can i do now,

    please kindly solve that problem for me.



    thnks

    best wishes

Well zarshad lets solve ur first issue MEMORY CARD.
so like u told dat uve set a password to protect ur memory card from unauthorised access right?but bro the password set on that is working perfectly fine. it will prompt u the password when u will insert that card into a MEMORY CARD READER SLOT( IN LAPTOPS,DESKTOPS ETC) and IN ANOTHER N73 OR N73ME fone.so dont worry abt the card password. u can access it but not on other device except ur N73ME.
and ur next issue. THE KEYPAD LOCK. LETS GO STEP BY STEP and confirm the same steps that im telling u,u make the changes in ur fone settings ok?so here we go:-
1.Goto ur fone menu and select the SETTINGS icon,where ever its located or where ever u moved it.
2. Select the option that says SECURITY with a lock in front of it.
3. Select the option that says PHONE AND SIM.
4. select the option that says AUTOLOCK PERIOD. By default it would say NONE.
5. When ull select this,it would say NONE and USER DEFINED. So select USER DEFINED.It would Say "Lock after (minutes)". Mention the number like 1 for 1minute or 2 for 2 minutes or whatever time u want ur fone to autolock it self "1 minute" veing the least time. u can't select the time in seconds.
6.Next it would ask u for the code. By default the code is 12345 IF u haven't changed it as per ur wish.IF u've changed 12345 to other number ull have to input that number vich would be a 5 digit number.
VOILA!!!!! uve set ur fone for autolock. and ull have to input that code everytime u want to access ur fone.NOBODY n i meant it NOBODY can access ur fone after this. IVe followed the same steps n ive set up my fone to lock itself in 1 minute.IF U WANT TO LOCK IT MORE EARLY MANUALLY,PRESS THE POWER BUTTON ONCE AND THEN SELECT THE OPTION "LOCK PHONE"
WHEN U SET UP THIS AFTER LOCKING UR FONE A KEYLOCK WOULD APPEAR ON THE SCREEN.

OK?so follow these simple steps n im very sure that ur issue would resolved

    well thats really strange cuz even in my fone and my frends who have N73 or N73ME,ive tried the same thing like u told me but memory card didnt ask me for a password in the same respective fones but ven i inserted dem in different N73 and N73ME it did ask me to access the card.. so i guess its not really a big issue to think about. But still u want to set it authorised n i really well understand dat u want to lock ur personal data... i told u the autolock thing and bro like u told me that u entered 12345 so dat means u have awredy changed the default code from 12345 to another.ok ill do one more thing.. If u could just confirm me a step before STEP 4 that i told u.below "AUTOLOCK PERIOD" ull see "LOCK CODE",right? so just try inputting 12345 as the code and press OK.If it succeeds then u can change the lock code because after this ull see "NEW LOCK CODE" and then u can input any 5 digit number that u wud like to be the fone's security code.After this it would ask u to verify it,input the numbers that uve just changed [ that is the new lock code] and prees ok,after this ull get on screen "LOCK CODE CHANGED" and then continue following the step 4. if the "LOCK CODE" doesn't accept 12345 as the lock code so that means u awredy changed it,its confirmed. then after this ull have to format ur fone to make the code back to 12345.ALSO to cut these steps short,lets try a simple step:

    Press the POWER button once and goto the option dat says "LOCK PHONE" and prees ok,it owuld ask u for the code,put in 12345,if it accepts n u c a lock on the screen then it confirms that the fone default code is 12345.

    JUST FOLLOW THESE STEPS AND TELL ME IF UR ABLE TO GET UR FONE AUTOLOCK ITSELF.IF IT DOESNT WE'LL HAVE TO FORMAT UR FONE [NOT UR MEMORY CARD] AND THEN WE CAN FOLLOW THE STEPS FROM SCRATCH

    NOTE:- ull have to take the back up of ur fone,if we have to proceed with format,but that's an another issue ill help u with if we have to do this.

    PLEASE DONE FORGET TO RATE ME AS UR VALUABLE RATINGS MAKE ME TO SEARCH AND PROVIDE U WITH EASY AND DESCRIPTIVE STEPS FOR UR SOLUTION.

    THANKS
