    Simple question on padlocks!

    Advertisement



    Hi I've got a yellow padlock symbol against my pictures on my bb8700g. I did assign the padlock but it was a while ago and I've forgotton how to put on and take off! Bit blond here!

    And what does it actually do - it doesn't protect against deletion, cos I can still get rid of the photos......

    The padlocked images are ones that can't be shared. You have either downloaded them from a paysite or came on the BB when you bought it.

    Err...... no I haven't paid for any cos they are all my own pictures that I've downloaded to the BB. And I do remember assigning the padlock myself initially, but have forgotten how I did it!

    And just to add that indeed the padlock indicates that the picture cannot be sent as an MMS.

    I have been playing with my 8700c to see if I could lock my personal pics and have not found it yet. Anybody else?

    Re: Simple question on padlocks!

    I have an 8100, and they operate fairly similar, but I haven't been able to find an option to lock or unlock the photos or other media content...only time I have seen a padlock on MC is when it came pre-loaded.
