Default Change Lock Screen - "Disabled by remote phone administrator"

This is annoying me- When i try to turn off the pin lock i can't choose none. i see "Disabled by remote phone administrator"

I don't want a pin lock i just want the slide- is this a bug on my phone or is this a new thing that Verizon is enforcing?

Do you have exchange server or good messaging? Is this a company phone?

delete the Corporate Account, then the option will available to disable the PIN.
Then you can add the Corporate Account back and it shouldn't ask you for a PIN.

Doesn't work for me. If I disable the pin when the account is removed it comes right back after adding back the account.

If you don't mind using the non-Motorola email program you can download this slightly modified stock mail apk from the Nexus One. It has been modified to not require any pin for security. I just downloaded it and it works great, actually prefer it to the regular Droid X mail application.

You have to realize that your company is just trying to protect their data from being stolen or misused if your phone is lost. It's a pushed security policy.

[APP] **Updated 9/22/2010** Android Email.apk latest src code w/o Exchange security - xda-developers
He may need to be rooted to push that apk.

Delete the security certificates first and you'll regain access to the low and medium security options
