    Does anyone knows if the Hero has a simple 4 digit pin lock option?
    If I lose my phone I don't want anyone snooping around and being nosy.

    There is a gesture lock.

    EDIT: Settings>Security>Set unlock pattern.

    Thanks, I don't have the phone yet. I guess the gesture lock screen better than nothing. I'm waiting for the Sprint Hero and I'll get rid of my iPhone and At&t overpriced rate plans.

    Cool.
    There are 9 dots on the screen and you pass over (at least 4) of them in an order of your own, then when you slide down the unlocker you redo the gesture and you are in.

    I don't mind the Gesture Lock - but I do prefer typing a PIN code instead. I can't find a setting to change from gesture to PIN - so I'm guessing there is no way to use a PIN - is that correct?

    I find the paternal unlock feature to be very cool and with ( by my maths) 362,880 possible combinations its pretty secure.
