Re: locked key pad

You will have to take it to phone shop and they will use a flash lead and plug it into a laptop or pc and they can reset the code the only code you can do your self is the puk code if it is not this code take it to phone shop not a big shop they wont do it but take to one thats in a market or to somebody other than a major phone shop as these wont do it because it a safety measure incase the phone is stolen if it is the puk code u can ring up your network provider and they will give you the code over the phone if its not puk code has to be done at shop as you cant buy the programme to do this you can get it off the net but the flash lead is not cheap but they should unlock it for about 5 pound hope this is some help.................

What is the default password for micromax x2i mobile

The Keypad Lock Icon is seen on top of the screen at various positions depending on the number of icons displayed. An Open Lock signifies that the phone’s keypad is unlocked and a closed lock signifies that the keypad is locked. You can unlock the keypad by pressing Unlock (by right soft key) on the phone, followed by the Send (GREEN) key. Similarly for locking the keypad, press the End (RED) key, to be followed by the Send key.

The user guide for your phone does not indicate a default pass code. Most default passcodes are either 5 or 6 zeros. Some are 12345.

Lock the keypad

You can manually lock the keypad to avoid pressing keys by accident. You can still answer an incoming call and the keypad will lock again when the call is finished. The keypad remains locked until you unlock it manually.
Depending on your phone model, you can activate the automatic keylock. When the automatic keylock is activated, the keypad locks shortly after you stop pressing keys.
Please note: with some phones you can still use external keys when the keypad is locked. If you wish to lock the external keys you must lock them separately.

K800i To manually lock the keypad:
  1. From standby, press the * key.
  2. Select "Lock keys".

To activate automatic keylock:
  1. From standby, select "Menu" > Settings.
  2. In the General (tab), select Security.
  3. Select Automatic keylock > On.
To unlock the keypad:
  1. From standby, press the * key.
  2. Select "Unlock".
  3. hope this helps Thanks and God bless

Key pad lock and unlock Nokia 1200

My local Nokia Care Center provided the easy answer (which does not appear in the
owner's manual):

In the Menu, go to Settings, then select Phone settings, and activate "Keyguard Settings," and "Automatic." That done, you must select the time interval until the keypad self-locks. To unlock,
touch the "select" key (upper left key) and * (lower left). That combination also will relock the keypad.
