Default Security Timeout Workaround?

Please Login to Remove!

My company has a mandatory 20 minute security timeout on my 7250. I use the device more as a phone than email device, so it gets quite annoying to have to key in the six-character code if I go more than 20 minutes of no activity. My complaints have fallen on deaf ears. "Tough" they say, "Blame Enron and the new anti-corruption laws."

Is there any work-around or application than can "press a key" every few minutes and fool the timeout? I'm aware the security policy may prevent installation of new software, but I'd really like to try something.

No workaround. Don't even try it - many companies have a termination policy if employees mess around with security.
