Default Password Question

Please Login to Remove!

My sidekick had a feature where if the unit wasn't used for a specified amount of time (1 min, 5, min, 1 hr), you would have to enter a password to get into everything. Does my Pearl have this feature as well and if so, how to activate?

On a more basic note. Can you put on passwords to access certain applications (email, phonebook)? If so, how to do this.

Is there a way to put a password on if the phone is turned off that you have to enter when it is turned on again? Thanks.

For your questions 1 and 3 yes BB does have this feature. Use the search tool on your BB, it walks you through step by step.

For your question #2 I don't think that is possible.

Options > Security Options > General Settings is where to look for options one and three.

And No...two isn't possible.
