    Follow the below steps:
    >>On Start, flick left to the Application list, then press Settings > Lock + wallpaper.
    >>Do one of the following:
    >To set up a password for the first time, turn on Password, enter your new password in the New password text box, then re-enter it in the Confirm password text box.
    >If your phone already has a password and you want to change it, press Change password, then enter your phone's current password in the Current password text box before entering your new password.
    >Press Done to save your changes.

    In addition to this, you may want to set a time limit for the screen time-out, which is the amount of time before your phone locks itself. To do this, press
    Screen times out after and then select the time length you want.

    Thank you.

    Hi there,
    In order to resolve your query just do the following:
    From the Windows Phone 7 home screen, flick left to the Applications list and then press Settings.

    In the settings, select Lock and Wallpaper.

    How to Set a Password:

    If you have not set a password for screen lock, you can set it by sliding the option against password.

    You will be prompted to enter the 4 digit password, confirm the password and click done.

    Changing the Password:

    If you want to change the password, open the Lock and wallpaper option and click Change Password.

    Enter the current screen password and then specify the new value you want to set. Once completed, click the done button.

    Hope this will help...
