Default Length of Security Timeout

Please Login to Remove!

As I did with my old Palm handheld, I've set a password on my new Blackberry Curve so that there might be a bit of protection should I lose or misplace it someday. However, I don't like to keep entering my own password several times a day. The length of the security timeout can apparently be set to a period between one minute and one hour. I'd prefer something longer, like 2 or 4 hours or maybe even more if I know the BB is going to be in my pocket for that long. Any way to increase it?

I believe you stated the parameters correctly.

I don't know of another way to increase it.
