| | Device Password Protect on Curve 8520
Please Login to Remove!
I recently downloaded a lock app to lock my handheld and key apps that I want privacy for. For both, a password is required. I am currently using the lock app on apps only, as I have discovered an in-built BlackBerry password setting under Options however, I am not sure if this setting is to password protect the whole handheld or for a feature on the phone. I would like to use it to password protect my phone from any kind of useage, if that's what its for. Also, if it is for this - I notice there is no option to type the password in twice to check that both passwords match and you don't lock yourself out of your own phone!? However, it does have a: 'Change password' option, which makes me think it might not be for the handheld but for the Password Keeper.
If anyone could tell me for certain what this is for - I would be grateful & if its not for device password protecting, if Curve's come with a BlackBerry in-built one or not, before I go ahead and use my downloaded app to do this.
Also, my BlackBerry automatically locks with the BlackBerry Curve keypad lock feature that comes as standard (part of the phone) and which is unlocked using the play button - as I have the downloaded app to do this with, I would like to disable this auto feature so that it doesn't conflict with the downloaded app but also b/c I find it annoying the way it locks automatically after so long, especially as I never wanted it in the first place. Thanks.
