If someone gets access to the contents of your mobile phone, he could potentially view personal information, photos and passwords. To protect your privacy, Nokia has included a security feature on its 6280 model that, when activated, safeguards the contents of the phone by requiring the input of a security code. Using this code, the phone can be locked and unlocked in a few quick steps.
Press any key to activate the backlight. Select the “Unlock” option. Select the “*” key.
Enter the user-generated personal security code, which is comprised of five to 10 digits. The default code is 12345. It can be changed by pressing “Menu” > “Settings” > “Security” > “Access Codes,” then entering a new code.
Press any key to activate the backlight.
Select the “Unlock” option. Select the “*” key within 1.5 seconds to unlock the phone.
Tips & Warnings
- You can place calls to the pre-determined emergency number stored in the phone even if the lock has been activated.
- Select the “Call” key to accept a call when the automatic keyguard is active.
- When the automatic keyguard is active, the phone will lock each time a call is ended or rejected.
- After five incorrect entries of the access code, the phone will automatically lock up for five minutes. Additional attempts can then be made at inputting the correct code.
