Set Nokia 5230 to request lock code (not pin) at startup.

Hi,

 

As the title suggests I want to set my 5230 to request the lock code at startup (the one thats 12345 by default). But not to request the code when bringing it out of standby.

 

I used to have it set that way, but since updating the firmware I can only find the option to request the sim pin or to set it to lock after x minutes.

 

Has it changed in v40 or am I being thick?

 

Thanks

I think setting the SIM PIN to ON may do the trick...

That would secure the phone, but as I say, i want it to request the security code, not the sim pin code.

 

I'd rather use the lock code than pin code so unsupervised little fingers can't block the sim with 3 wrong guesses at the code.

 

For now i've just set it to autolock after 720 minutes. I'd assume it wasn't possible to set it to only ask at switchon (and offline mode) if i'd not had it set up just that way before updating the f/w
