Apple iPhone 3GS

Secure my device

Lock the device screen, set and change security lock, and locate device.

  1. When you're not using iPhone, press the Power/Lock key to lock iPhone. Locking iPhone puts the display to sleep, saves the battery, and prevents anything from happening if you touch the screen. You can still get phone calls, text messages, alarms, and notifications. You can also listen to music and adjust the volume.
