    I'd like to increase the keyguard timer, but the answer here doesn't help me. Under "Settings & Tools" the only options I have are 1. My Account; 2. Tools; 3. Bluetooth Menu; 4. Sounds Settings; 5. Display Setting; 6. Phone Settings; 7. Call Settings; 8. USB Auto Detection; 9. Memory; and 0. Phone Info. I've looked under all of 'em and can't find anything about the keyguard. 7 seconds is way too quick for me! Any ideas how I can change the timer?

I just called Verizon about the keyguard being too easy to unlock and they were clueless. But here's a solution: As above, using the OUTSIDE keypad, click OK, go down to keyguard settings (number 6), then hit unlock options (number 2). This gives you the option of using a one step unlock process (hitting the OK key) or a two step (hitting the OK then the Clear). I think it is still too easy to accidently answer the phone but at least this will cut down on the dialing.

    To activate the keyguard, hold down the zero on the outside keypad.

Look under "Settings & Tools", then "Keyguard Timer"? There should be several time options.

From the main screen, press ok once. You will see a numbered list of things (1. contacts 2.messaging, etc.) Scroll down to 6. keyguard setting and click ok. set your desired time and you are good to go!

Dude.. you seriously go through all those options to Lock the phone everytime you're done with it? That's insane! Isn't there a shortcut to lock the phone?

Posted on Sep 03, 2008

On the front screen press ok and go down to keyguard settings and from there you can change it to always off, 7 seconds, 15 seconds, or 30 seconds

Only thing I find to help me, from calling people accidentally or whatever else it decides to do while in my pocket is to lock the phone every time I put it up. A huge pain yes, but less embarrassing than unwanted calls etc.
Settings and Tools #9
Phone Settings #6
Security #6
Enter lock code(whatever you made it)
Lock Phone Now #4

I can answer calls, but to make one I have to enter the code first. Have to do it everytime.

They keyguard only helps sometimes. it's really pretty lame cause if you have anything in your pocket it is very easy to accidentally hit "ok" which in turn makes it easy to call or text people in your pocket.
it should be a series of buttons instead of just the one. i call people all the time without knowing it

Posted on Aug 14, 2008

You have to use the menu on the outside of the phone, looking under "Settings & Tools" then "Keyguard Timer"

From the manual, the shortcut to locking the phone without going through the menus is to hold the x character for 3 seconds on the inside QWERTY keyboard (doesn't work from the outer keypad); you will notice there is a little picture of a lock above the x.

My env2 wont charge. whenever i plug it in, the battery stays the same. what do i do?


This seems to be a common problem for the env2. If you hold your charger a certain way in the phone does it charger? Is the charger port broken or damaged?

If so the easiest workaround is to get an external battery charger and extra battery to charge the phone.

Check out the following link for information on the battery charger and other options for the env2 charge issue.

ENV2 Keyguard Lock problem


When your phone is closed, hit OK for the menu, then hit 6 for Keyguard Settings. There, you can not only change the time it takes for the keyguard to automatically go on, but ALSO change the keyguard unlock options from One Step Unlock (just hitting ok) to Two Step Unlock (hitting ok then clr). It's not a 4 digit code, but it's a lot better than just hitting ok, and much more time efficient than locking your phone every time you put it in your pocket.

Lg env2 not charging


The issue is the charger port on the ENV2 breaks fairly easily.The first step is to contact your carrier to see if it is coveredunder warranty. If it is, great get it replaced.

If not, you have 3 options:

1. you can get the charging port repaired. The cost is about 50 dollars. I recommend Cellulardr.com

2. you can get a new phone. cost ???

3.You can get an external battery charger to charger the batteryseparate from phone. cost about 25 dollars. Check out the following linkfor ones that are available on ebay. A extra battery is a good idea aswell so you can have one charging at all times.

LG env2 Key guard


The options for the keyguard can only be accessed from the front screen. If you open up the enV and try to find the option it's not there, so on the front screen go into Settings & Tools, Keyguard.

How to unlock your keyguard on your phone


Assuming you're trying to get past the keyguard on the outside screen, simply hit the "Ok" button twice

If you want to turn the keyguard off alltogether, go (using the outside screen, this is a must) to: Ok > Settings&Tools > Keyguard Timer > Always Off > Ok

That should do it.
