    Good evening all -

    Just curious, do you password protect your iPhone, or not?

    Exchange policy makes me password it. But, to be honest, I don't mind. I like knowing that no one can mess with my phone if I leave it sitting around for a while.

    So do you password protect? (Ashleigh is still bemoaning the loss of her 3GS and cursing that she's back to using a 2G!)

    Lock code for sure! How hard is it to enter one when you need to use the phone. Really!!

    I have always password protected mine. I've got a nosy nephew that likes to go through my phone. LOL. I wish you could password protect stock apps too.

    the way the iphone uses the code is very irritating. The android systems use a much better way by sliding in a figure across the screen. Better protection and better usage.

    This is not a huge deal. The same thing is also available for free for jailbroken iPhones. I tried it and didn't like it. To me, the Android way was very irritating. To each, his own.

    I use password protection. Haven't you read The Scarpetta Factor??? She lost her phone and all sorts of havoc resulted. It's fiction, but the point was made....
