    Java is about your only chance, with the 6230i being a series 40 Nokia.
    Have a look at <http://www.getjar.com> they may have something there
    for you.

    Wouldn't the security keyguard be sufficient, perhaps with automatic
    keyguard on? In my opinion, S40 has been way ahead of S60 with this feature,
    automatic keyguard has only recently appeared on S60 devices.

    Another security option for low end phones is to use the restricted numbers
    feature on the SIM card. You can block all calls and text messages, or allow
    only calls and messages to specifically assigned numbers. This would not
    block others reading the messages stored on the phone or similar if this was
    important.

    I completely agree, I moved to S60 a long time ago and the first thing I
    found was the auto keyguard feature missing. I personally hated the
    idea of having to unlock the phone with a code every time I wanted to
    use it, but if some people like mikie prefer it then so be it.

    restrictions are normally a network level feature, but it would be good
    to be able to handle it on the phone.

    I agree there are network level restrictions that can be used but every SIM
    card I've seen supports restricted numbers or fixed dialling numbers, this
    setting being protected by PIN2. Here you don't need any network support. It
    is completely between the phone and the SIM card. A set of allowed numbers
    can be programmed, where wild card numbers are allowed. This is something
    I've taught kids using when they tend to lose their phones. The one who
    finds the phone can only call "home" or "friends", not very useful if
    someone wants to steal the phone. But useful if the one wants to inform
    he/she found the phone. Are you familiar with this?

    On my S60 phone the setting appears at contacts, SIM contacts, fixed
    dialling contacts.

    Very interesting, I hadn't looked there before. I like that very much,
    it could come in handy.
