    I would like a PIN or password for start-up of this Tab, similar to that on a phone for SIM upon start-up.
    I don't want to encrypt the device, nor do i want an annoying screen-lock.
    I find this weird why this is this so difficult, and not standard supply, really obvious to me!?

    Settings >Lockscreen and tap Screenlock. Swype screen is the standard default.

    There is a small but significant difference between "an annoying screenlock" and "the annoying screenlock" Must be my South African that confused me.

    Agreed Bosbouer.
    I know that brosko....but don't want the standard screenlock with PIN, I want only an access PIN or password at start-up.....why is this so difficlut to understand.....IT SHOULD BE THERE AS STANDARD!
