    S60 acting on alert on top of the locked screen

    Hello,
    As part of our (J2ME )application requirement on S60 3rd edition FP1 phones, the user has to accept/reject a canvas based screen within a limited time. This screen is shown based on a network triggered event. This works fine when the phone doesn't have lock configured by user.If a lock code is configured and if phone is locked when this screen is shown,user has to unlock the phone first (by entering the code) and then act on the screen. so is there any way to bypass the phone locked screen and enable the user to act without unlocking the phone?
    Thanks
    Sandeep

    Do you mean the keypad lock feature of the device ? Unfortunately there is no option to bypass this keypad lock feature from a Java Midlet.

    Thanks Gopal for the reply. yes even key lock also is a problem for us. I was referring to phone lock here, where user can configure a lock code to unlock . Can it be done using any C++ APIs?
    Thanks

    With Symbian C++ Yes and No. With N-Series there are APIs that do work on some devices at least, though I'm rather sure non of them are in public SDK, but some could be found propably in Symbian partner SDKs (or you could see what AT commands are supporting), for E-Series the whole security model is designed differently, and unlocking is very problematic, and some functionality is rather impossible to implement actually..
