Thank you very much for pointing me in the right direction! Indeed the phone had an IT policy and to your advise, I searched and found what I was looking for. The password is now disabled
I am thinking about using the pearl over my 8700c. The only thing that is really stopping me now is how you have to use both hands to unlock the keyboard. With my 8700c, you can use the "clicker" and choose unlock without have to press the star+green phone button.
Know of any shortcut for easy unlocking the keypad?
