    Never. I have nothing to hide on my phone
    But really, my phone is either
    1. Always in my hand, in sight, or in my pocket.
    2. I don't ever leave it alone or out of my pocket in a untrustworthy area
    3. The only place i really leave it out of my sight is in my house/car.

    I would not lock a phone but this is an iPhone. It is a mobile computing device with 32G of local storage. Of course I lock it.

    Even though it doesnt leave my hand, I mean side, I lock it. But I use it for everything and have lots of info on it.

    I go back and forth. Sometimes I put the passcode lock on it, but then I get tired if having to enter in a code every time to unlock my phone. So then I disable it. I think that it is important to be secure but I also like convenience.

    I've got a lock after 2 minutes. After a while putting in the code becomes second nature, when I use other people's phones without a passcode on it my thumb is hovering ready to type a code in automatically!

    I have mine set to immediately. I wouldn't care, but I have a nosy nephew that likes to go through my pics and texts if I accidentally leave it laying around.

    We enforce a 10 min lock out maximum on our phones, so the longest option we can use is 5 min

    1. Always in my hand, in sight, or in my pocket.
    2. I don't ever leave it alone or out of my pocket in a untrustworthy area

    I set mine to lock after 1 minute. Even though I always have the phone on me, I can be absent-minded at times. It was tedious at first, but now, it'd feel weird if I didn't type in my passcode, lol.

    Mine locks in one minute and requires a passcode after 15. I always have my iPhone with me, but you never know.

    It's always nice to have a lock code to keep unwanted people off my phone and in the case that it gets lost or stolen whoever takes it wont be able to use it without figuring out how to unlock it.

    Used to use password lock but I stopped using it. Wanted to make sure my son could pick up and use my phone in an emergency. And my phone may as well be glued to me. If it werent for my little cherub I'd definitely use it.

    I did for a while, but it got very annoying very quickly. No one ever touches my phone except me, anyway.

    Mine locks after 5 mins requiring a passcode. A 4 digit number takes about 1 second to punch in and being a police officer I would hate for my phone w/ sensitive contact information to get into the wrong hands.

    I don't passcode lock my phone; it never leaves my side.

    We found an iPhone in the bathroom at work today. It was locked. Since we are underground with no cell signal the phone may or may not already be in airplane mode to save the battery, but at any rate, the owner won't be able to use Find My Phone. So we put the phone in a secure location and put a note on the bathroom door. Too bad we don't know whose it is.

    I have mine set to lock after five minutes. I have a lot of personal and business information on my phone. Maybe I'm just old, but it strikes me as funny to hear people talk about what an inconvenience it is to punch in a 4 digit pass code. It takes me less than a second to input. In my opinion it's actually a very convenient way to lock a phone.

    I keep password on my phone as my 3 year old is well versed to use it from his experience on iPod touch . I have lot more apps on iPhone and I don't want him to mess with it.
    I do agree that's it's an inconvenience but it's there for a reason. On a side note I have my office mail on my phone and IT mandates it. I did have my password before I signed up for enterprise mail though.

    And there is no risk that it will ever be lost.
