Explanation: Here is an excerpt from the owner's operating manual on one of our cell phones, an Audiovox CDM 9000:
"Your phone is equippped with the Security Code and the Unlock Code to access various security features. You may change the preset codes for added protection.
Security Code - to access Secret Number, to set Call Restriction, etc.
Unlock Code - to unlock the phone.
Keypad Lock - this mode is useful for preventing inadvertent pressing of keys (for example, when the phone is in a purse or pocket). With this feature on, incoming calls can still be answered and programmed emergency numbers can be called, but the following functions are not available ....
Automatic Phone Lock - if you activate this feature, the phone will automatically go into the phone lock condition after it is turned off.
To Unlock the Phone - enter the four-digit unlock code. The "Phone Lock" indicator will go out.
To Change the Unlock Code ....
