    Anyone know of a way to do a numeric passcode to unlock the device? Like how Android/iOS has? Am I missing something?

    Just set a device password via security settings and make it all numbers. I would think that should work.

    I should have been more clear. I'm referring to the way the "Simple Passcode" works on iOS. It just shows a large phone dialer pad with big numbers rather than a full keyboard.

    If we don't need a very complex passcode, just something to keep nosy, pesky people out, this works perfect.

    I really want to be able to use the dialer type keyboard with just a numeric unlock. It's a pita sometimes to type out my password on the full keyboard. I'm so used to depending on the auto correct that my accuracy is actually quite low for passwords.

    Yes, I would quite like to have this feature. I don't work for MI5 or GCHQ. I don't need to keep my data safe from governments and mercenary/terrorist hackers. I only need the most basic passcode to prevent identity theft and run up bills long enough for me to check Protect and notify the police or call lost and found.

    yeah, I would like this as well. I have a numeric password, but it's hard to type it in quickly when the whole keyboard is shown!

    You'd be surprised how easy it can be to misspell that on a virtual keyboard haha. The thing that makes the z10's keyboard so masterful is the auto correction. Obviously that is not something that is available on password entry (nor would you want it to be). The numeric keypad for sim code entry has nice big buttons. It's very quick.

    Why would you want just a numeric password? That would make it way too easy to hack your device. BlackBerry has always been about security. Have you seen the glitch in iOS6 and even a bit further back where you can glitch the password screen and view the person's contacts and such? I wouldn't want my Berry to work any other way than the way it does.

    Posted from my Z10. Is there any better way?

    I doubt those aforementioned glitches are the result of a numeric password. Do those glitches still happen when using full keyboard password on ios?

    I too would like this functionality added in by BlackBerry like ios. Be able to choose simple or complex password. But apple might choose to sue BlackBerry over that?? Lmao

    Which is why we're asking for it to be extended to the device password as an option.

    Read. It's been explained. It's not always necessary for a consumer. Only want it as an option.
