    i am trying to password protect my phone so my toddler doesnt purchase anymore apps on my behalf. is there a way to password the market so nothing can be downloaded without the password like it is on the iphone?

    well i installed protector. it kind of does what i want, but not really. I guess i need an iPhone if i want that feature. thanks for the info tho.

    You know you have 24 hours to uninstall and get a full refund?

    Admittedly you would have to check after getting your phone back but the notifications should still be there (unless your toddler clears them I suppose)

    Seems like a bit of a leap based on trying out just one app. I don't have suggestions off the top of my head (I lock the entire device) but I know I've seen discussions along these lines before.

    I use "App Protector" which password protects anything i wan't.
    Especially the Market, and install/uninstall via any method.
    works fine.
    What does an Iphone do that is much better/necessary?

    Not if he was only here to troll to begin with.

    I just purchased App Protector and love it. So much so I may lock important apps and the dialer and disable that friggin' system PIN lock that causes me so many headaches!
