Set up a screen lock

  1. On a Home screen, touch the Menu key (=).
  2. Touch "System settings".
  3. In the "Personal" section, touch "Security".
  4. In the "Screen security" section, touch "Screen lock".
  5. Select the desired screen lock.
  6. Follow the onscreen instructions to set up your screen lock.

Once you've set up a screen lock, you can choose whether the phone locks:

  • instantly when you press the Power key to go to Sleep mode (useful if you have set a longer time for automatic lock),
  • immediately when the screen goes to sleep after being inactive for a set period of time, or
  • after a certain number of seconds or minutes after it goes to sleep.
