Default 8520 Screen/Keyboard Security

Please Login to Remove!

Hi all

I'm moving from a Nokia N95 which had a screen password. This allowed me to setup a password that prevented the screen/keyboard from being used, even though the phone was left switched on.

Does anybody know if the 8520 or 8900 Curve has this facility - can't seem to get a definitive answer on this from the specs on the website.

Thanks in advance.

Options > Password. You can set a password there and the timeout time as well.
