    does anyone know if there is an app that lets you bypass entering a password when my storm is locked?

    My company has settings so that it requires a strong password (8 characters and must include: upper case, lower case, number and symbol).

    It is also set so that it automatically locks after 30 minutes.

    I am looking for an app that will let me bypass the strong password and use something simple. It is a pain when driving to enter the password.

    Thanks for any help

    No there is not, if it is set by the IT policy from your company you are stuck with it.

    That is what I thought but it was worth asking. Seems like there could be an app written for it but I am by no means an IT guy!

    You could try mentioning to your IT folks that requiring ultra strong passwords (and including all 4 "flavors" of characters counts IMHO) is in fact less secure than requiring a slightly weaker password, because when the password gets past the "PITA level" people start doing things like writing it on a slip of paper or doing other that end up compromising its value (your post here qualifies), tell them that 2 flavors is usually good enough, particularly since BB's can be "remote wiped".
    Of course since your IT folks instituted the policy, I doubt they will be influenced by the opinions of a mere user.

    If an app is written to do this, you will see a wholesale removal of BBs from corporations. That would be a major security breach and one that would seriously compromise their image of secure phones.

    Nothing to offer on the topic, but having to do all of that on a Storm has got to be a pain in the a*s.
