Some security concerns, and friendly advice, here...
1) If all you are getting is "* + (green call button)", you obviously don't have passwords enabled on your devices. Is this not something you want to enable by default, or does your company not care that anybody who takes the devices can read the e-mail?
2) The Blackberry locks upon bootup by default, not a policy issue. This is to ensure data-privacy as malicious users cannot simply reboot the device to get to the data. Of course, if you have no password set, you have to live with the locked screen.
3) Hopefully the password option hasn't been disabled due to pressure from users. If the excrement hits the fan, you will be the first one in front of the firing squad, not the users/director/CEO etc. I'm sure there is some legal rulings enforcing data protection to help you push it to the business.
Better to light a candle than to curse the darkness.
