    Actually, I know about the phone locks. Thanks alot for the help anyway but I wanted to know how I could lock the keypad like we do in other phones by pressing the hash # button and then the menu button. But as Comega82 said, there is no keypad lock in flip phones, he is right because I cannot lock the keypad for sometime...until i unlock it again. Thank you very much the help. God bless you all!

Okay, i understand that you have a Sony Ericsson Phone and hence would like to annotate to the above information that, you can lock the keys in these different ways:

1. Phone lock:
Protect your phone against
unauthorized use if it is stolen and the
SIM card is replaced. You can change
the phone lock code (0000) to any
four- to eight-digit personal code.

Automatic phone lock:
If the phone lock is set to automatic,
you do not need to enter your phone
lock code until a different SIM card is
inserted in the phone.

To set the phone lock:
1. Menu-->Settings -->the General tab
-->Security -->Locks -->Phone protection
-->Protection and select an alternative.
 Enter the phone lock code -->OK.

2. Generally, the Sony Ericsson phones have the automatic keypad lock under the
General Tab--> Security...Check for that...

For more information on your phone, check for user guide of your phone
in the following website:

Hope this helped you....

If it is a flip phone, most flip phones dont offer the ability to lock the keys because they are thinking there isn't a need for that since the keys are hidden by the top of the phone, if it is a candybar phone usually the menu key and the * (star) key are used to lock and unlock your phones, if its a smart phone there may be some options in the settings. You didnt mention what brand your phone is based on the model number sounds like a samsung. you can go to samsungs website and research the model number and usually they have information on how to do everything you need with the phone. most cell phone carriers have this info too, you may have to dig threw the website a little though

I forgot how to lock my keys , so I can carry my phone in my pocket & not have to worry about keys being pressed accidentily..Help?

Just press the menu key and after that press the * key..
Your phone will be locked..
You can also lock your phone using security code by searching through menu-->settings-->phone settings-->security code..
You can also check the automatic key guard option and select it to automatically lock the keyguard in stand by mode so every time you do not want to lock it manually..
To unlock the key guard do the same by pressing menu and * key..
The default code is 00000 or 12345
If you use a security code you need to give the code to unlock your phone..
Thank you for using fixya..

Your phone's lock code is used to lock and unlock your phone.
The default lock code is 1234.

If you enter a wrong lock code five times in succession, your phone prompts you for the security code.
