Screen Lock


When you set a pattern (draw a pattern with four or more dots) for the screen lock method, you can protect your personal information by preventing others from accessing your device. After a screen lock method is selected, the device requires an unlock code whenever unlocking it.

Note: Screens and settings available may vary by wireless service provider and software version.
