    Security PIN code and how to stop it from locking on standby

    Advertisement



    I want to turn on the security feature where you have to enter in a PIN code when turning on the phone. When I did that, it worked fine. Only problem is when the phone is on standby for several minutes, after the screen turns off and everything, the phone gets locked. When I push any button to wake it up, I have to enter my PIN code to unlock it. It gets annoying after a while, and I don't want to keep entering my PIN code to look at my phone.

    Any way of enabling the PIN code at phone power up and disable it from turning on after going on standby?

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~
    I don't believe so, no. You could try bumping up the timeout feature, though.

    Perhaps they'll eventually fix this, & offer a choice.

    That's the thing about SECURITY you have to type your password in.

    Corporate businesses don't care about it being convenient for the user they just want their data protected.

    REMEMBER RIM just stepped into the consumer market it's ONLY been 2 years. Give it time.

    What you might want to do is enable the sim PIN instead of the BB's security. The sim PIN is only looked at on power up and down of the wireless. It will ask you for the pin code anytime you power down and then power back up the wireless whether that be from just turning wireless off or shutting the unit down. It won't ask when it just goes to standby mode.
