Keypad settings how do you change the settings so the keypad doesn't lock.  The phone keeps asking if you want it locked and locks if you don't choose an answer.  I want to shut that off.

Re: keypad settings

The only options Ive found for this are if you hit a button with the slider closed it asks if you want to unlock the keypad. Then you hit the right top button (says "ok") and it unlocks...this stays like this until you open and then close the slider. This is the only way I know of to unlock the keypad, I have not found any other way in settings menu or anywhere else. Good luck!!

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 will i have a code on my n70?

well, you can choose to use a 'PIN code' or a 'Lock code' or 'Memory card lock'

1. PIN code actually locks up your SIM card, so anywhere you put your SIM card, the message on your SIM card will not be read by anybody without knowing your password. It'll ask you password each time you switch on your phone, but after switched on, it'll not be locked anymore, so anyone can read your phone after switched on.

2.while Lock code, locks your mobile phone like 'keypad lock', the different is, instead of just pressing , left softkey and * button, you need to put password on it (it lock after certain idle time - or you can choose to lock it anytime you want by pressing the on-off switch one time (don;t press too long) and choose the belowest which said lock phone ). this type of lock is commonly used.

3.Memory card lock, locks any application which access your memory card, such as images, text, songs, data that is stored on your memory card. but this type of lock, often bring troubles when the memory card get corrupted. so I suggest number 2 type of lock (lock code)

WARNING!!! all password should be remembered, as if you forgot those password, no body can help you unless technician.. see those articles which people post when they forget their password, so you know the risk and the consequences. But they're actually safe as long as you remember ^^

Good luck, all the best!!
