Default Any Way To Lock The Blackberry Like iPhone's Passcode?

Please Login to Remove!

One thing I love about iPhone is its passcode option, that the moment you unlock the device it will ask you for a passcode to proceed, with an additional option of deleting all media from the device after the tenth failed attempt. I tend to get antsy when guys borrow my device and snoop around, and if I misplace it I would rather have all my information confidential. Does Blackberry have an equivalent to the iPhone's passcode option?

I thought it was well known that that was a blackberry feature, I was always told that's why drug dealers like blackberries. Because of the wipe on the tenth failed password attempt.


I had no idea the iphone had that, haha. So I guess it goes both ways :P
