Certain information is needed in order to know how to lock text messages. Information such as the make and model of your phone as well as what you hope to accomplish by “locking your text messages”.
However, in any event I can help you through it provided that you are using a Motorola phone. To do it, you simply select the message you want to lock, by highlighting it in the list of messages. Then you can press your ‘menu/function’ button and there should be the option to lock/unlock the message. Simply select the feature and the message should be locked.
The thing is that by locking the message, it only means that it cannot be changed/modified or deleted. It doesn’t mean that it will be locked with a password or something like that. So if that is what you were going for then you would have to use another form of locking.
Keep in mind that we are dealing with Motorola phones here and the instructions that I just gave you above are generic enough to work with most handsets.
Is it possible to text to a person in another country who has their service and not the United States phone service? You will need to register with an online service. Since America uses CDMA and a majority of the rest of the world uses GSM the txt must be translated from one type to another. If you go to a website called http://www.ipipi.com/ it will tell you all about it, and you can then register with them. You send your message to IPIPI they translate it and forward it on to the person you intended it for. There is a minimal charge for the service.
In comparing the 3310 to the 6630, it appears that the 6630 Smartphone gives you several options as it relates to SMS messages, where the 3310 did not. With the 6630, it is my understanding that you need to define the Message Centers first, much like you set up addresses in your address book and then when a person you have in your address book calls you, their name is associated.
In order to view the Message Centre of an SMS message, you first have to make sure that the Log is turned on. On Page 26 of the User Manual for the 6630, it shows how to set this up:
– Monitoring all communication events
– Monitor all voice and video calls, text messages, or data connections registered by the phone, press [the ring looking button] and select Log, and press to open the general log. For each communication event, you can see the sender or recipient name, phone number, name, service provider, or access point
-You can filter the general log to view just one type event and create new contact cards based on the log information. Subevents, such as a text message sent in more than one part and packet data connections, are logged as one communication event. Connections to your mailbox, multimedia messaging centre, or Web pages are shown as packet data connections
