Default Password protect and answer calls?

Please Login to Remove!

Had a BB for a while but have never password protected it since I got one with a built in phone (used to on my 950 back in the day) - so I wondered if I could ask a newbie question. If I set a password to lock after 15 min or so of inactivity and I get a call, will I be able to answer it while it is protected, just not be able to call out until I unlock it?

Thanks

Depends. On the same screen where you enable the password there is an option to allow calls when locked. Caller ID will not work when locked, but you will be able to answer the call.
