Once you start the app you will be prompted at a connection screen. You need to check the FIRST BOX ONLY! then click allow this connection.
The 8130 CDMA comes from the store with the firewall turned off. When it is off, several apps keep asking for permission to locate local content. This happens to every file you want to lock or unlock. If you activate the firewall under options> securityoptions> firewall, then filelock doesn't ask you for permission any longer as long as you have everything set to "allow". Hope this helps. I had this same problem with audible air and several others. This fixed them all.
Thanks to dsump for the info!!!!
Trouble Shooting Guide
Q. How does FileLock work?
A. The FileLock application adds an extension to your personal files. For example:
The .lck extension locks the file from being discovered by the media player or the viewer.
Q. How do you unlock the files?
A. This app requires the user to input a password to have the ability to unlock the files from the device.
Q. How do I recover my files if I forget my password?
A. There are two ways to do this:
1. Remove and reinstall the app and set the password again
2. Plug your device into your PC and rename your files by removing the .lck extensions
Q. When I input my password and select ok nothing happens, What's wrong?
A. Typically when you exit the app it stays pointed at the last folder or directory you were looking at, so if you delete that folder or directory then the app becomes stuck. To reslove the problem restore the folder or directory.
Q. Can I disable the pop up menus I get when I navagate?
A. At this point there are not settings for this app its pretty basic. So what you see is what you get.
I found the reason everyone is being prompted to lock a file. Its a permission setting. Only do this if your app is installed and is prompting you everytime your lock a file. If you are freshly installing the app for the very first time skip to the vey bottom paragraph
Go to: Options>Advanced Options>Applications>FileLock. You will now be at the File Lock Properties screen.
Hit Menu>Edit Permissions. Here you will need to expand the CONNECTION, INTERACTIONS, USER DATA tabs.
Match the settings to this guide.
Carrier Internet..... Allow
Modify Device Set. Allow
Module Manage..... Allow
Keystroke inj......... Deny
Browser Filt........... Deny
Theme Data Inj. .....Allow
Screen Capture...... Deny
Security Timer R..... Deny
USER DATA: Allow
Allow all fields
Note: each device is different so if an option isn't in my guide just allow it.
Save and exit
Now run the filelock app. Once you start the app you will be prompted at a connection screen. You need to check the FIRST BOX ONLY! then click allow this connection. And it should be fixed. I succesfully did it on a 8310
