Touch on Settings (the gear icon) then Phone Settings and then Security. Enter the lock code when prompted. The default lock code is the last four digits of your telephone number. Now you can set a passkey to lock/unlock your phone.

Touch Edit Codes to select a lock code: • Phone Only: For unlocking the handset only. • Calls & Services: For access to Calls & Services Security.

Enter the new lock code at the “Enter New Code” prompt

Enter the new lock code again at the “Re-Enter New Code” prompt.
