The it policy on my enterprise server makes me lock it ever half hour. Its not too bad but it can me a hassle some times. ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~
Always have, Always will!!! Never had it enforced through BES though. I'm not on my companies BES, and I know they do, but other places I have work never enforced it. I always wondered why. But I do lock my personal BB out of fear of losing my phone.
Passwords can be broken... but understand if your data is important than setting a password is better than nothing... and passwords like "momsbirthday" and "ssn" are easier to break than "&##j38#*)."

I tried. It always comes out of standby by itself (no incoming calls, etc.). I must not be doing something correctly.

Yeah password here. Must at some point test it. Wipe after 4 wrong passwords. Personal use but keep a lot of work info on it. Nice to know it secure.

My personal devices are not passworded. My corporate device is. Loss of my personal devices would be annoying, but were I to lose my corporate device anyone finding it would have access to employee files, trade information and various other things that I wouldn't want every tom dick and harry to be privy to.

Passwords may be able to be broken (as mentioned above), but I strongly doubt they would be able to break mine in the 6 attempts they get before the BB is wiped!!
Locks / PW Protection / National Security....all that!
Wouldn't think of having it any other way...I don't play when it comes to my handsets.

Best investment for your blackberry, lock your device from any place thru the internet, Adjustable lock out time, gps/cell tower location if lost
I have password protected every BB I have ever hadMy BB is password protected and has been since day one. I store so much private stuff on it, as well as the thought of someone going through my private emails freaks me out too much not to.
I did have the media card protected on an old Pearl of mine, the Pearl died and now I can't access the stuff I had saved.
I always protect mine-with an eight digit code mixed with numbers and letters. My bb is completely personal,and I wanna keep it that way. My bb password is kinda like my wife's wedding band......................................it reassures me.
