    Question Treo 650 locking program that stays active when re-set?

    Hey group,

    Does anyone know of a good program for the Treo 650 that will lock the phone, then use a numeric touch-screen to unlock it again?
    I tried using MicroLock, but the programs can only be used while the phone is on. Once it is reset, the program is useless.
    And the default Treo security settings are annoying. If you set the phone to lock every time it turns off, that covers ANYTIME. Even when the screen just turns off. And using the keypad to type in the unlock key takes much longer then a touch-screen does.

    I was using the PPC 6700 for two weeks, before I sent it back in favor of my Treo 650. But I really like the unlock touch-screen for that phone.

    I also know that the program I am looking for might not exist, because of the Treo's use of volatile memory for storage. But it is worth a shot in asking


    Any help will be appreciated.

    Thanks,
    Russell

    TealLock stays active through a soft reset.

    Hey EMN

    Have you used this program, is it worth it? I just wasted $10 on MicroLock, which I can send you the file if you would like to check it out.

    I downloaded the program, but I can't seem to find a way of using the touch-screen feature. The password prompt is set up the same way as the Defult Treo locking settings.

    How do I set it up to use the touch-screen?

    Have you tried to setup a hardware button mapping? I find it very fast and convienent. Under the LOCK SCREEN category, goto the Password Key Entry settings. There you setup your Quick Password.

    Then under the SECURITY category, you enable quick password.

    When you type in your password, you can use your quick password for a few seconds. If you don't type it in correctly, you have to type in the full password.

    Hope that alternative works for you.

    Thanks everyone for your help. The TealLock works very well. I would like to know if it will stay active once the battery runs out, but I don't want to risk it.
