    Hey guys this is pretty severe, especially for those of us on corporate accounts.

    Severe how? Are you gonna get hacked by some micro ninja while your phone is in your pocket?

    Unless your phone gets stolen or lost I see no problems.

    I don't see how this is a problem you would not run into with any other phone.

    WTF, people actually lock the phone? Annoying as hell to put in more numbers after sliding it.

    my friend does. it is funny because if you punch in the wrong password a few times it locks the interface for 5 minutes and then later for 15 minutes to prevent you from just constantly putting in passwords to break in. i do it to him to fuck around with him so he can't use his phone.

    Once they have physical access, security is already broken. :p
