Lock Handheld Upon Holstering
 
Hi,

I have a Bold 9000 with OS 5.

The only way I can activate the 'Lock Handheld Upon Holstering' facility is by using the Password.

I am fine to use the password, but wondered what happens if the number of attempts for the password is reached by entering the wrong password.

Please advise.

Cheers.

All handheld data will be wiped.

The path to access this setting on the Bold 9000 with OS 5 is:

Options > Password > Lock Handheld Upon Holstering > select NO

If you also enabled encryption, you will have to disable that to remove the lock on the password setting. That is assuming you don't have an IT policy forcing the password protection.
