    locking the ring volume on e815

    Just got a new e815 yesterday and still trying to figure everything out.

    Is there a way to lock the ringer mode so that when I have this phone in my pocket I don't accidentlyi turn off the ringer by bumping a combination of volume and speakerphone buttons? I don't want to lock the entire phone, just the ring volume.

    Thanks

    Thanks! I knew there had to be a way to do it.

    The documentation with this phone is horrible. Is there a better online manual or FAQ for this phone that has more than the paper manual or CD that came with the phone?

    The manual says either 1234 or the last four digits of your phone number. I tried 1234 and it didn't work. The last four digits of my phone number did work as the correct pass code so apparently Verizon does that automatically as part of the setup.

    0000 is the default 4 digit, 0000000 the default 7 digit

    Correct -- VZW automatically resets this to the last four of your phone number every time you go through the activation process (i.e., *228, option 1).

    Very standard Motorola interface -- it comes natural after about six or so Motorola phones over the years...

    you can also push menu then * to lock the keys when you place the phone in you pocket. granted you have to unlock them before you can use the phone again, I think its easier than going into the lock applications.

    if only more thought would have been put into this phone, like maybe having to hold the buttons for 3 seconds before it changes the ringer, we wouldnt have to lock a flip phone.

    LOL... I think alot of this has to do with how soft the buttons are and where they are located. I don't push the volume buttons on my razr nearly as much.

    Nah that is madd unneeded; its a flip phone. The only annoying keys are the left scroll buttons. They always manage to get pushed in my pocket and change the ring style from Loud to something worthless. Therefore locking the ring styles is so much easier because you can still change them by opening the phone up just not able to do it closed.

    I prefer to be able to set the phone from loud to vibrate with the push of the volume buttons so i just set the soft details volume to 7 so that I can hear it if it accidentaly gets switched
