Anyways to answer ur question...NOthere is no password but there is a lockbutton on the top left of the player.

haha long story....after the 200th call i wanted to talk to samsung. The p3 was out of stock apparently at dell. (the black) I called up samsung and asked them if they had it in stock. they said yes. N then i asked why they are not supplying dell with the p3's. the manager told me they have not recieved any erquests of shipment. I FLIPPED! I waited for a month and a half and PAID(i got charged) for an item DELL was OUT OF STOCK and DIDNT request another SUPPLY REFILL!!!! I complainded for about 30 minutes and finally they asked me if i wanted the silver p3. they toldme that they had that one in stock. I was speeeechless! All that time they could have told me. I finally got the p3 5 days after the order. so in total i waited from july 5th to june mofoin 30th for this amazing player TnT


What i suggest you do is call up dell.....whenever they are open.....and ask if the p3 u ordered is in stock. If not cancel and order a different color. It'll save youa lot of time, frustration, and an eternal hate for dell. =) YOu'll prob recieveby the 20th if they have it in stock.

The first place i ordered was from dell, and this was about the 23rd of june. And to this date dell has yet to ship my P3, so i ended up going to B and H and got it with no problem at all. My dell order is actually still in and im amazed that they're really taking this long just to ship it. I can say i'm never ordering from dell again.

But more on topic, no it does not have a password thing like the P2 has, the only thing close to 'locks' is just a hold button.

I ordered from Dell, it took them about a month and a half (after one cancelled order) to get the P3 I wanted in stock, but they didn't charge me for it till

a) It was in stock and,
b) It was being sent to me.

So that being said it seems like dell has a permenant shade of grey on when they will charge you for your product and why.

As for that "expected delivery date" be ready for that to get pushed back by a couple of weeks, probably, a couple of times.

As you can see there is a fair few Dell haters on the P3 forum. We've all had some rough experiences with the corporate goliath. And many of us would like to go kick our respective "customer service representatives" in the junk for making us wait so long

No password, but you can lock the P3 either from the screen or the top button.
