    Highly annoying. I know you can get lockpicker for the incredible to disable this. I was wondering if there is a app for the X that will do the same.

    note to OP: moved to root because by default you have to be rooted to have this issue. ;) GL.

    Can't you just go into the security settings and remove that option? You still have to use the slider, but you do not need to use the numberic keypad.

    Do you have exchange email? I know D1 users with exchange email that requires a password have complained about this to no end.

    yeah sounds like you have exchange email or one of the options selected in security, but since you say you don't I will take your word for it.

    So do you have a exchange email setup?

    Edit: So what does it say when you go to Location and Security > Setup screen lock? Does it say none?

    I have exchange and I talked to the IT admin and he claimed he removed the security policy requiring this. However I've searched other forums and apparently this is a persistant problem.

    I know with the Incredible you can download lockpicker but it doesn't with the X

    Email the dev from the market, and see if they plan on adding the X to the list of supported devices? Maybe it would be a quick add?

    I work in an office. It has a window, but it isn't
    In a house, near some mountains.
    i do know that my company requires this to be eligible to use exchange on the phone. i didnt know this has been an issue even if IT disables the feature. i had my exchange admin mess with enabling and disabling the feature, and it seemed to work fine. if an answer isnt found, i will see if i can find some answers at work on monday.

    however, this is most certainly related to exchange, and not the settings in the phone. 2.2 enabled the pin to be controlled by the server admin. if there are problems, moto needs to know. this isnt a known issue as far as i know.

    if the admin truly did disable the feature, maybe try to remove the account and re-add it?
