<admin_mode_password perm="PERMISSIONFLAGS">VALIDVALUE</admin_mode_password>


This setting is accessible when the phone is running in administrator (admin) mode. The default administrator password (admin PW) is “0000”. When the phone is running in user mode (i.e., many settings are not available), you need the admin PW to switch the phone to admin mode. This setting requires confirmation (see Settings/admin_mode_password_confirm).


We recommend that you replace the default admin PW by an individual one; if you do not, an unauthorized third party with access to the phone could set an admin PW unknown to you. In such a case, you would no longer be able to switch from user mode to administrator mode.

If you set your own admin PW, be sure to write it down and store it in a secure place. If you lose your admin PW, you will not be able to return the phone to admin mode without a factory reset of all values.
