Re: making a call while phone is locked

When the device is locked you will only be able to make emergency calls, the option to make out going calls while the device is locked is not present.

Re: making a call while phone is locked

With the Z10, at this time it is not possible to make calls on a locked phone. I realize with previous models this option was available. A drawback is if the phone is lost and the "make calls while the phone is locked" option is allowed, the finder of this phone can make many expensive long distance calls to anywhere he wants for as long as he wants.


The owner of the phone is technically responsible for all the calls made on his phone. If he looses the phone and he calls in the phone as missing, he is responsible up to the time he called in to report the lost phone. In a few hours someone can run up a hefty phone bill.


I leave my phones fully locked until I will require them.
