    If you use the Standby Mode (hold down the MUTE button on top left) it should lock the phone and make it not react to any button push unless you hit the MUTE button again.

    So just use the security lock and put your phone in standby. It's easy and free.

    There is a built-in lock feature on the device that does require a code everytime to use it. It is located under option> security> then enable security or password> and hit same and just enter your code and confirm it. Be warned if you enter incorrectly a certain amount of times it will erase all your information.

    If you have the password enabled it should lock on it's own. You can set a period of time until it locks in the options. Also you don't need to lock it since standby will disable all buttons except for the mute button.
