cool, 1st time one of my threads made it on front page of CB "from the forums" haha I was gonna make a poll but i dont know how, and was feeling lazy :/ I had mines set to 1min just in case my phone got stolen or lost but Sometimes i get annoyed when having to keep typing my password in when I constantly use my phone. So now i just set it to 5mins or 10mins, seems about right.
Always password lock with data wipe! My wife figured this out the hard way with her last android when she walked away from it in a store for no more than 5 min. I sent the signal out to wipe it within half an hour, but the [insert nasty name] had already pulled the SIM :angry: She spent a lot of time changing info and watching her accounts, aside from paying for a new phone on top of that!
With my previous Berry's I would set it to lock after 15 min and wipe after 5 attempts. I figure that's enough time for me to complete a quick communication exchange where I wouldn't want to have to put my password in every time. My iPhone has a similar setup, though I can't set the password attempt limit to anything other than 10, with data wipe enabled.
I have my 9650 (non-camera model) set to lock after one hour. I experimented with shorter settings (1,2,5, & 20 minutes), and though they offer way more peace of mind, I went back to one hour because I got tired of entering my password (it's 21 characters long) especially while traveling by automobile. My BlackBerry is on my person most of the time, and when I set it down I just press the left convenience key to lock it.
Ive got password lock set for one hour and since i keep it in my pocket i frequently use the top screen lock button.
no one else has mentioned it but i have device and media card encryption disabled. contacts encryption was too annoying when receiving a call and media encryption left me with a bunch of .rem files....
