Angry password

HELP
I have bought a 8700 (used),and it wont let me disable the password in security options/general settings.
I click the thumb wheel over the 'enabled' and all the options that are given are change password/wipe handheld/verify security software/save, and close

It's totally doing my head in as i always have to put the password in:

Any info would be great
Thanks all

Sounds like you may have an IT policy on the device. Go to Options > Security Options > General Settings. Scroll down and see if anything is listed in Services.

Yes, that is the cause. Do you use this device for work, or did you buy it second-hand and use it for personal use.

Stop it. Stop posting the same (incorrect) information over and over.
000000 means nothing. Disabling the password is done by removing the IT Policy.
