Default Security Issues, plz help!

Just uploaded v. last night (if IRC), and I've been having issues w/ the password protect option. The 'enabled' selection under options>secutrity options>general options has a little red lock icon beside it, so I can't turn it off!?

I can't seem to figure out why, but half the time when the pw prompt comes up, it's 50/50 as to whether or not it is A. in ABC entry mode, and B. will even accept the pw. I changed the pw once, but the new one included an 'N', and everytime I tried to input that N it quickly flashed a 'make emergency call' prompt. I'd have to delete that one digit and try all over. Half the time it'd work and half it wouldn't. Then the kicker. For some reason it reverted back to the original pw. Now, it accepts only the original pw, even though I never changed it? I've had issues along the way where it'd tell me I input the wrong pw, but it wouldn't subtract from my remaining attempts. Weird. I'm just confused/frustated, because I'm at work and I need this mofo to work.

Can anyone lend any advice or suggestions? Most importantly I want to be able to toggle the pw protect on/off, I can deal w/ the original 7key alphanumeric pw I started off with, so as long as it keeps accepting it, I'll be happy. Ideally, I'd want to be able to have the 'autolock' app lock the ketypad when not in use, and have the pw protect kick in after set time (i.e. 1hr inactivity). Thanks.
