i have been a big fan of moto's app locking. but this is very frustratingly not available with the rizr z8 (why do the guys at moto change their basics aargh :mad:). what can be done for that? are there any 3rd party apps that can be dnlded?

thanks guys!

What does "moto's app locking" mean, exactly? Prevent a phone user from running a specific app at all? Require a password/PIN to run an app? Require a password/PIN to install an app? Require a password/PIN to uninstall an app? Something else?

If you explain what the feature does for non-Motorola users, you might get better answers.

And for UIQ3 apps, start with these links (on top of every page on this site):

simply put, you can set a password to personal applications that you dont want others to go thru. for example i use it for locking my text msgs so whenevr i want to access it, i wud have to key in a password. thats all.

no idea yet sorry. :frown: i've stopped using it. its bulky. try the other models like z6, very cool looking and has the msg lock. or try other companies. most samsung sets have them. try this website there are LOADS of phones on 12 month free line rental!! some of them are latest phns too. and the major point abt this site is, its easily the best deal comparison site on the web today. u know how confusing it is to find a deal with so many phone companies, models, tariffs and what nots to browse thru. this website makes it all easy by putting the power of advanced search in ur hands. in one search u can put up to 12 types of search options! e.g. what network u want, how many mins, what model, duration of contract etc etc. once u put ur specs in it searches 50,000 deals avaible in UK and gives u the best selection. now thats what i call putting the power back to the people! enjoy!
