How to password protect the phone

Recommended Posts

Hey there,

I understand, that I can use the Dial-Lock found in the Settings --> Security dialogue. Anyway I find it quite annoying for the daily use - I´d rather just have the phone locked, when being turned on.

This will leave the phone renderless for thieves as well and will minimize the trouble - and in addition to that: In case of emergency the dial-lock could be fatal...

With PocketPC this is no problem, but I haven´t found a solution to this in the OS or by a third-party software. Ideas anyone?

Best regards

Jens

You can still call emergency numbers, even then the lock is on. Just type in the number, and press the green Call-button. Like "112".

That´s correct. However in Germany and many other countries the police emergency call differs from the rescue call. In Germany it´s "110" - and this can´t be entered if the lock is on.

By the way: Is there a way of adding this number? Maybe somewhere in the registry?

And apart from that - it´s still annoying to enter your password every hour you didn´t touch it....

Regards

Jens

You can do this!

Click the power button once, and then select device lock.

Enter the duration - this is how long it takes to lock itself.

Enter the password.

This should do the trick?
