    You want to lock the keypad, right? I think I missunderstood what you were asking, which I believe is "how do I get my phone to lock the keypad after a set amount of time and then unlock it with a combination keypress like top left 'selection' button + *". The bad news is you can't. You have to download one of the keylock apps on the internet. Download a free one. Nokia does not put the app on the their phones so they can charge you money.

Don't know how to set key pad lock


Before locking the keypad first remember if the keypad lock is assigned with a security code.
Default value of the security code is normally 0000.

1. To lock the keypad first press the option key, then select the LOCK KEYPAD.
2. To unlock the keypad press the option key then press the "C" button.

You can check more lock/unlock optoons in the users manual, downloadable from this link. Read page 63 and on.

How to lock a Samsung Intensity cell phone


Unlike flip phones, cell phones like the Samsung Intensity are subject to accidental keypad-pressing and dialing when they are in your pocket, purse, or even a holster. To avoid unintentionally using up voice or data minutes, you can lock your phone and temporarily disable the keypad.

There are two ways to lock a Samsung Intensity - the standard keypad lock and the security lock.

- To use the standard lock:

You can lock your phone at any time from the main screen by holding down the "0" key for about two seconds. The keypad will immediately lock, and you won't be able to use any functions or make any calls (except for calling the local emergency number). To unlock the phone, press the right option button (in the upper right corner of the keypad, next to the End button) followed by the Menu or OK button.

You can also set up Auto Key Lock, which will automatically lock your keypad after the backlight turns off. The Auto Key Lock setting can be found in the menu under Settings & Tools > Phone Settings > Auto Key Lock.

- To use the security lock:

The security lock also prevents your keypad from being used, but it requires a code to be entered in order to unlock the phone. To enable the security lock, go into the main menu and select Settings & Tools > Phone Settings > Security > Lock Phone Now. (You'll need to know your phone's security code in order to access this setting -- by default it is typically the last four digits of your phone number.)

To unlock the phone, press the right option button and then enter your phone's security code, followed by the OK button.

You can set your phone to go into security lock mode as soon as you turn it on by enabling Phone Lock Setting under the Security menu. Every time you turn your phone on, you'll need to enter the security code in order to unlock it. However, once you unlock it, it will remain unlocked until you either manually lock it or turn it off and then back on.

I want your phone locker?


Hello,

You can set up a security code to lock your Nokia 6288 keypad in case a thief tries to call from your stolen phone

Published on Mar 14, 2007

You can set up a security code to lock your Nokia 6280's keypad in case your phone opens in your pocket and calls one of your contacts, annoying them and potentially running up a huge bill.

The code will also stop a thief from using your stolen Nokia 6280 to run up a huge phone bill before you can alert your network provider.

To set the security code, click Menu > Settings > Phone > Security keyguard. You'll be prompted for the Security code. By default this is 12345. Enter this and press OK. Select On and click Select to see the message 'Security keyguard activated'.

Now when you slide your phone shut and press Lock, you'll see the message 'Keypad locked with security code'.

When you slide it open, you'll be prompted to enter the security code. Type your code and click OK to activate your keypad.

Of course, if any potential phone thieves are reading this, they'll now know the default security code is 12345.

To change the security code, go to Menu > Settings > Security > Access codes > Change security code. When prompted, enter your current security code and click OK. The enter your new security code (a PIN between 5 and 10 digits in length), click OK and enter the new code again to verify it. Click OK and you'll see the message 'Security code changed'.
Hope this helps.
