Auto-lock keypad Nokia N73

I bought N73 unit a couple of months ago. I have a common problem that my phone makes call to a top listed number in Contacts by having pressed inadvertently. Would you please advise if I can set auto-lock keypad as i enjoyed in older Nokia units.

Re: Auto-lock keypad Nokia N73

There are some 3rd party applications available that provide that functionality - a quick search of this board will find a list of them.

A more secure option though is to go to:

Menu .. Tools .. Settings .. Security .. Phone and SIM

And set the "Autolock period" to "5 minutes" (or whatever you prefer).

This will then lock your phone and password protect it against anyone who might steal it.

Hi riazrizvi,

May i confirm with you that this problem causes your phone to dial out to the list of contact numbers in the phonebook without you notice?

May i seek your advice what do you meant by "makes call to a top listed number in Contacts by having pressed inadvertently"? Was your phone already keypad lock when this happened?

Please advice.

Regards,
Howard

Re: Auto-lock keypad Nokia N73

put autolock on to my N73. Great job got me around not having one.

I also use the phone on a wired connected car kit.

Old nokia used to stay unlocked when I put it on the kit.

The new autolock does not work the same phone locks after the timer.

Something I can live with with just a tiny nuissance.

Is there another variation of autolock that takes this into account.

You might have set your phones speed dialing.... that might be the reason.... try to check your settings.
