Hey does anybody know how you can password protect your e-mail, texts, and visual voice mail on the Instinct?
I already raised the privacy issue in other threats...
In any case, the only one way I protect myself with this new phone is to lock it everytime (turn auto lock on). That really sucks!
I wish I could individually lock each features separately - visual voicemail, email, text message, etc...
I have the same frustration. A phone that DOES so much NEEDS to be easily, selectively secured. With my old phone it was no big deal to toss it to a friend and let 'em make a call or two. With quick email access, etc, this is like handing out state secrets!
Hmm i dnt understand. Does the whole phone lock and then you unlock it with a number that will give you access to the whole phone?
Yes, I have set up my Instinct to lock after inactivity or when pressing the power button. When you press the power button again to unlock it, it shows with a nice big number pad to key in the numeric password. It is all one-handed and fast. No hassle at all!
It's not a hassle to lock/unlock the phone.
The problem is that once it's unlocked, you can't just lend your phone to your bro/sis/friend to use because now, they can look at all your email, messages, visual voicemail, etc... That really sucks ! It's not that hard to add in a lock for every feature that needs to be locked/unlocked. They already have this ability for voice, web, etc....
ooo, yeah Iphone's the same way and nobody has ever complained about that. All windows mobile devices are the same and I think maybe everyone is getting a little too picky lol
i agree people see an incredible device and try to pick it apart the instinct is the best phone in the states right now.hands down.
I totally agree. I brought that up in a post I created, but I kind of worded it wrong, so no one really understood what I meant. I think that there should be a full lock feature to lock everything therefor, when someone is playing around w/ it they can't see all of my business. Also, I'm kind of annoyed that you can answer a call on a locked phone. All of my other phones did not do this.
