The moral is that I couldn't get into the device so all the user's info was secure. I password-protect my BB for just that possibility. When my wife asked me why it was locked I said, "Sorry hun. Basic security and standard operating procedure." Passwords: Just Do It.
Now THAT is funny. I have my Google Voice number on my lock screen, so they can leave me a message and I'll get it in my e-mail.
