Default Re: Blackberry Encryption and passward

Can someone explain to me how, if I enable encryption on my Storm 2 9550, and someone gets my device before the password protection time-out has operated (ie. 30 minutes) my files are secure and inaccessible.

I don't understand how encryption is any more secure than the device's password if to decrypt only requires knowledge of the device's password.

I must be missing something here

Please advise, thanks.
