Phone Autolock Period disable.

Hello,

 

I'm using C7-00 phone. I'm not able to disable the Phone Autolock period. Whenever i tried to disable it is giving the error message " unable to Unlock phone". The Phone auto lock period is set to 15 min. Even i'm not able to change this auto lock period to some other value.

 

Please help me out in resolving this.

 

Thanks,

Abhilash

Sadly no other option - This is how I did it -

 

put phone in <Offline Mode> (press power off and select) then press Call and type *#7370# (Will erase all data on phone memory - not SD card - so back up first)

This worked for me - tried other solutions I found, but only this one worked.

Re: Phone Autolock Period disable.

FYI I have this exact problem on an E6-00, for me it is stick on 20 mins.  The funny thing is I setup the "Lock code" and "Autolock period" to 720 mins and it worked for a the week I've had the phone.  Then I think I was presented with a "Tip of the day" kind of notification with I think a "Show" and "Cancel" (in relation to advising me that some function or other is best used with auto-lock)  and I picked show, little to know knowledge it reconfigured my phone in such a way that the setting is stuck on 20 minutes with no way to change it.

 

I should have worked out that, oh, you'd already set that up, nothing for me to do.  Or it should have been a lot more informational about what things it was going to configure for me, maybe the button should have read "Configure" not "Show".

Re: Phone Autolock Period disable.

When you try to disable or change the phone autolock, does it prompt for your lock code? I believe it's supposed to. Try this: change the lock code to something else. Reboot and then change it back to the original code. Now try disabling the phone autolock. I believe this once fixed a similar problem in another forum.
