    Lock? What do you mean? As in not receive any text messages at all?

    What device are you on?

    im on the new pearl, i think its the 8100... by lock i mean, say somebody was to use my phone, i dont want them to access my messages.. with other cell phones, such as the razr, when you click on Messages, it prompts you with a password screen

    im not sure people understood, by lock i also mean, locking certain parts of your phone,such as camera, sms, adress book etc..

    On my 7100t, you go to:

    settings>options>security options>general settings

    I enabled the password setting, which prompted me to enter a new password. Then I set the security timeout to my interval of choice (i.e. 5 minutes, 1 hour). Now it self locks the keypad and side keys after it "times out" when not being used. Then that password is needed to "unlock" the phone, and use it for anything besides 911 calls.

    Hopefully you can follow a similar path to find what you are looking for.

    Just to add info to the above, if your phone is locked and rings it can still be answered, but you can not go to the home screen access messages photos etc
