How to Unlock Keypads on a LG Cell Phone

By April Khan

Using a keylock is one way of guarding your phone against accidental dialing. Most of us have had it happen one or more times; we put our cell phone in our pocket and then pull it out later only to find that we have dialed the last called number over and over again. Locking the keypad will disable redialing, accidental answering or any other mishap from occurring. It is important to remember when locking your keypad, to take note of the unlock instructions.

Tips & Warnings

  • To lock open-faced handsets, you can use a standard keyguard lock. Flip phones, open-faced phones and touch screen phones can generally be locked by using a key located on the perimeter of the phone or by using a phone lock code. Instructions on how to use the phone lock code is located inside your user manual. These codes require a four to six digit number to unlock the handset for use. You can still call emergency services with a standard keyguard lock on, but not with a phone lock.
