    Yes I always do. I also auto protect after 5 minutes. My BB is for personal use.

    My BB's are personal and they are password protected. Just for my sanity in case I lose it. But I also back up my BB's so I have my info if I have to replace it.

    On the Nokia's that I used that had it (all were Series 60 units), it was an automatic lock that you had to manually activate. Once activated it would check the ICCID (sim card serial number) and match it to the one it had stored (the ICCID of the sim that was in it when it was activated). If it didn't match, it then locked the unit down and asked for a password to be entered to bypass the lock. The nice thing was that the password was 4 to 8 digits long and there was no way to bypass it without a complete low level reflash which required Nokia Service Software or something similar. The bad side was that I had forgotten what mine were since I didn't use that password for over 18 months. Thankfully I never had an issue with my sim card during that time.

    However I don't use the content protection option because it messes up BlackBerry Messenger upon a reboot.

    I don't have password protection on mine. My provider has a way to lock the device up if someones steals it or if I loose it.

    Most of the time, no, but on occasion I do. I work with family so no chance of it being stolen at work( I convinced them to get BBs too ). Even when I'm out it's usually in my hand and God help the person that tries to pry it out by force lol!

    Most of the time there is simply no need, but when I run errands, go shopping, etc. where I can be distracted, then yes, password protect absolutely.
