    Now that I have 2.2, I like that we now have the option of using a pin number or a password to lock our phones from prying eyes. I going the pin route for now. Now that we have these options, what will you use to secure your phone?

    If/when I ever get FROYO I'll be using the PIN option! I was never really a fan of the pattern lock, although I think it's great that we're given so many options for such a simple task haha

    COOL. Correct me if I'm wrong but stock Android had this already right? starting with 2.0 i believe.

    I'm with the ever patient DROIDdidme too thinking "WHEN I get it...... "

    I use the retina scan with the front facing camera that this upgrade activated.

    That and the pattern work wonders.

    I looked at that as well and decided that charging it was too much of a pain in the ass.

    I LOVE the pattern lock. I find it very fast to unlock the phone this way.

    I use the PIN. I am curious how long the PIN's are for everyone. Standard on many devices is 4, but you can choose whatever for this. Mine is 11 digits.

    I never locked my phone before (not a fan of the pattern lock and didn't like having to unlock it a million times a day) but with my 2.2 I now use a PIN.

    It's 4 digits and it is set to lock after 15 minutes.

    I use App Protector Pro with the Pin

    App Protector Pro - Android app on AppBrain

    That way if somebody wants, they can enjoy the goodness of froyo, but they're locked out from things such as photos, facebook, messages, task killers, etc unless they know the PIN :)

    My PIN is 6 digits long and somewhat of a pattern. I found the best ways are to think of a random word and use the numbers for that, or ever do a pattern with the number pad.

    No pin. No pattern lock. Not even a lock screen. I hate not being able to get to my phone instantly.

    Clearly you don't have a girlfriend. My phone is locked, my messages are locked.

    And that isn't because I'm not a good boyfriend but because she insists that what is mine is hers and that statement apparently doesn't go both ways.

    You're right, I don't have a girlfriend, I have a wife.

    A wife that also has her own Incredible. :p
