HI, new to the forum. I have done a search for this and didn't turn up much - probably due to the basic knowledge needed.
1 - How do I turn the thing off, I have had the SPV M2000 for 3 days now & can't seem to turn it off, the top on/off type button only seems to dim the screen.
No, you can't turn it off. You can, however, put it into a standby mode - you'll still recieve incoming calls, but the screen will be off. Just *press* the power button to do this. Holding it in is what causes the backlight to switch on and off.
2 - Is there a screen lock on it ? Went out the other night with it in my pocket, got it out later and it was on the Orange web site. The internet button had been pressed whilst in my pocket.
There's a way to disable all but the power button while it's in standby mode, this is what I use while it's in the holder. If you tap Start -> Settings, then tap the System tab, and Button Lock, there'll be two options: Lock all buttons except Power Button, or Do not lock buttons. Obviously, choose the former
Click ok, exit out all the menus... and test it out. *press* the power button, the screen should turn off. Now you can press any button you wish, the only one that'll reactivate the device is the power button.
Remember though, holding the power button for a couple of seconds just turns the backlight on or off. You only need to press it briefly.
