E71, password lock?

E71, password lock?

Hello,

 

I recently got the E71 and for the life of me I can't find a password lock setting. It could be that the E71 doesn't have one, but does anyone know if there's a way to change the lock settings so in order to unlock my keys I need to enter a password?

 

Thanks!

Re: E71, password lock?

I've tried going into there before but none of the options seem to give me the choice of setting a password... here are my options:

 

PIN code request

PIN code

PIN2 code

Keypad autolock period

Phone autolock period

Lock code

Allow remote lock

Closed user group

Confirm SIM services

 

I've tried lock code, but when I lock the keypad and unlock it a password request doesn't come up.

hi volivier,

 

you have tried the exact thing, but do try this too :

 

-please set a password at lock code.

-also set the phone auto lock period (say 1 min).

-now go to your home screen.

-wait for 1 min or press power button to see the option lock phone.

 

now try unlocking, your device should prompt for the lock code.

if this does not work out, please update ur firmware. 

 

 

If this post helped... Add some kudos!! :smileyhappy:

Re: E71, password lock?

THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU! This has been driving me insane since i got my phone.

 

For anyone else that is trying to figure this out, remember:

-If you have NOT already created a lock code, the original lock code is 1234

-Insert personal lock code

-Set autolock period (1 min or more)

-Change keylock period to NONE.

 

Thanks again, Vijay!

Re: E71, password lock?

if you haven't enabled remote locking, note that you have to enter the code before locking it using the power button way. Anyway, default code is 12345 not 1234

As hat_sg just said, the default is 12345

 

If you've brought the handset 2nd hand I suggest doing a complete Factory Reset to restore the default code.

Re: E71, password lock?

I had a Nokia E71, phone was not turing on at all, and was asking me the code to enter, I tried and tried and then it says you have only 5 option left before user data will be erased, I again tried the codes, then it turn off with a white screen that really scares me, I thought it will never turn on again, but then I took the battery off, and started the phone, it erased everything from the phone, but was unlocked from that code thing!!! Hope that will help someone who had similar problem.

The ONLY way you can get it reset to the Default 12345 is by visiting Nokia Care along with a proof of ownership (Bill / Invoice) ...
