The only options is to lock now or at power up, the best you can do is set security to one of your directional pad options, its the closest shortcut

Love the name. We stopped selling for them not to long after the merge because they have made it such a hassel to work with our customers. However you won't find much resolve for that problem.

You might have to explain what you mean by warped. I can tell you common causes of this problem. The causes of nearly all (I say nearly because I like to leave a cushioning margin) software crashes is when the software doesn't know what to do. Imagine if you will, I have blocks, and I need these blocks to go into one of two places. I get you to do it for me, so I hand you Block A and tell you to take it to point A, Block B to point B, simple task right? What if I give you a block and I tell you C and there is no Point C or you forgot somewhere on the way and remembered it is C?

Now, some people have it in their head that these machines are infallible but that isn't the case as they operate on electricty and are exposed to the enviroment. Dropping, extreme temperature, shock, inactive power flow, and pretty much anything that can alter that electrical flow will of course alter the stored data. This is why it is something of common knowledge to remove the battery and replace it to clear the cache.

So, since the reprogramming didn't work, it isn't a SIM based phone, and removing the battery doesn't work, it is likely that it is a problem with the board or the EPROM. To fix this, either the phone has to be reflashed or the main operating board needs to be replaced. I'm sorry if you may have found the information a bit overwhelming but I feel it is helpful to understand how it may have happened and what to look out for rather then just saying, "Oh, it are broke."
Now, for those of you who have a similiar problem who hold SIM cards (If you should find this through a google search or just trying to find an answer to this problem with another phone) GSM Phones (or phones which read from the SIMs about the account) can be dirty or damaged which can cause similiar effects as this. You'll know this to be the case when this happens when you either try to place a phone call, send a text message, or any reason that the phone tries to connect to the towers.

I hope this information has at least been helpful. And welcome to

SOURCE: How to unlock LG Rumor from sprint

The LG Rumor is a Sprint CDMA device. This means that it is activated on a network using the Electronis Serial Number programmed into the device. Once the device is powered up, it registers to the network and if that ESN doesnt match an active acct, then no service, and you may get a message asking you to activate your device. Sim cards are only in GSM devices (not including nextel and a few devices that have been dubbed world phones, allowing them to work on both CDMA and GSM services.)

So, all this was to explain simply that you can never put a sim card in a LG Rumor. There is nowhere for it to go. SRY!!!!!

LG Rumor 2- deleting sent message contacts

THIS WORKS!! This will erase ALL phone numbers saved by text messaging. Go to tools and settings... Select settings.... Select more.... Select security.... Enter lock code, if you have not changed it, it is either 0000, or the last 4 numbers of your phone number... select erase reset... Select erase messages... Select yes. You have no saved numbers under text messaging if you followed these steps. My pleasure.

Need to unlock lg rumor

the lock code is the last 4 digits of your phone number (unless you previously changed it when you first got the phone). This is the default for all phones - again, unless you already manually changed it. If you did then you'll need to call customer service and they will reset your lock code. Pretty easy.
