Default two questions on my 8700c...

Please Login to Remove!

can it bet set to auto lock the keypad after x seconds of inactivity?


when I press a button and the screen backlight comes on, I look in the settings and it says it is set to 100% brightness...but if I press the top power key, it lights up brighter... is there a way to set it so it stays as bright as this?

1. Yes, if you enable a password under, OPTIONS, SECURITY, GENERAL SETTINGS.

-Change PASSWORD to ENABLE, SECURITY TIMEOUT to whatever you want and then choose a password.

2. Not sure but maybe under OPTIONS, SCREEN/KEYBOARD, try turning off AUTOMATIC BACKLIGHT.

nope - one char gives "pwd too short" oh well... it was nice on my old cell to have the keypad lock after x seconds and not have to have a pwd assigned.

Yeah, I don't like having to use a password either but want auto-key lock.

The best thing I've found is to enable to the "lock when placed in holster" option. No password is needed for it.
