Basically for the security code, you need to hit the 'function key' (page 14 of the user guide, the bottom left key) so that it recognises the next button press as a number and not the letter on the key. For example, hit the '7' key and it recognises it as a 'v', unless you hit the 'function key' first.

When you enter the SIM code there is no need to do this and I have no clue as to why you should now have to this a) for the security code and b) why it now asks for the security code! I thought it was something to do with me setting the remote lock facility and setting a new security code. Obviously not.

So does this work have you tried it yet on your phone khalidelmeknesi?

Also do you have to do this every time you turn the phone on?
