    None of the buttons on the external key pad will work except when you push the END button the display will show the time.

Sorry - answer found.... my vx10000 has front touchscreen when locked you tap the unlock, and it unlocks....
The xx9900 :
To unlock the phone is by pressing the OK button in the middle of the phone. This is the largest button on the phone and elevated from the surface above other buttons.

    CLICK HERE for a PDF version of your manual

    Page 18 indicates the way to unlock the front display/keys is:

    (The lock code password is the last 4 digits of your mobile #)

    Activation of lock mode: From Standby mode press key with x and lock picture on it (# key) --- for 3 seconds

    De-activation of lock mode: Press the right Soft Key (unlock) (above red power/end)and enter your 4 digit password.

    Please consider changing your rating to FIXYA if this is the solution to your problem.

    Thank you.

The lock symbol is showing but the door can open and no functions on the oven will work apart from the clock

This is the keypad lock (symbol looks like a padlock?). Find the button that has a padlock symbol near it, hold down for 3 seconds, should unlock your keypad. This should be described in your user manual if not indicated on the touchpad.

Keypad in w350i not 2 repair tat

Remove the external key pad and press the internal keypad on the phone board directly, may be the external key pad rubber is not contacting the one on the phone board.

Or you can loose the phone, and clean the internal part of the key pad. There might be dust on it, you could also use this medium to service your phone. If it does not work after all these, then I think you have to change the key pad completely.

I wish you the best.

Can you tell me how to access the front touch-screen full-keypad?

You can only have the front screen touch keypad when you touch twice (double click) in the area where you want to type. (for example when you browse on the internet, text messaging or adding contacts). If you can't use the touch keypad the phone will tell you (for example in MSN messenger, you have to work with the keypad inside the phone).

Three numbers on my phone keypad not working.

You need to remove the external casing and replace the keypad inside.
