Keyboard locked message

I constantly get the message "Keypad locked - unlock keypad?" on my phone. It then takes two clicks to unlock so isn't difficult but is very annoying! How can I get it to stop doing this?

In settings in your phone it should have something like display settings and then something like keypad settings, when you get there it had the amount of time it will take untill it automatically locks or a setting to stop it all together,
what this setting does is to stop you dialing random things when your phone is in your pocket/bag/ or just rolling around in your car. Eg: dialing a number calling it and wasting your credit/phone plan.
i hope i could be a help.

I have a nokia 6500s-1 slide phone and my 3 yr old daughter pressed something while she had it, and now i'm locked out of the phone, tried all I can to no avail. Can't give you an IMEI number as the phone...


It seems that the keypad is locked. Does your poweron? If yes then press the poweron switch and you will find an option LOCK KEYPAD or UNLOCK KEYPAD. If it is the earlier then your keypad is free. If the later then select Unlock option and free up your keypad. If former then your there is no way that you can unlock your phone except re-installing the firmware. The IMEI number is below the battery. But, it will not help despite everyone asking for a SW generated password. get the firmware re-installed. It takes about half an hour.

How do I 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.

K530i 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'.

Keypad Lock/unlock feature samsung a767 propel


Pretty frustrating, huh? Especially with the wait time after you press each button. You'll be surprised at the solution.

I searched the manual, looked at all the options in the phone, searched the internet, and called tech support and talked to the guy for 20 minutes, all without any help.

I mentioned it one day to my receptionist. She took the phone, slid it open, and the keys were immediately ready for use. It's a shame Samsung never bothers to tell us about that. Or in the case of the tech support guy, don't even know.

It turns out to be a nice feature, and now whenever it asks me if I want to lock the keyboard, I say yes. I don't have to worry about starting a call if the phone is in my pocket and I move the wrong way. When I do want to use it, I just slide it open and get to work.
