The Privacy Protection lock usually is enabled when you swap out a SIM on the device. This can be undone by putting in the previous SIM and disabling the SIM lock. If you set up a Privacy Protection password in the past then try to recall it. The password would have needed to be 6 digits long. Your previous SIM will still need to be active for you to be able to turn off the SIM lock.

Locking X-tigi with a password?

How do I go about that? I tried normal phone lock and even entered a password but it doesn't pick the password.. I have tried: Tried locking but it doesn't pick the password on unlock


Go into Settings and then Security. Select Clear Security Credentials. Now try again to set up a new password lock. If you are still getting interference then put your phone into Recovery Mode and select Wipe Cache Partition and Clear Dalvik Cache. You may not be exiting the application properly or missing a step to save your password. Since you are experiencing problems with the lock function it may be best to avoid it completely.
