    This is annoying me- When i try to turn off the pin lock i can't choose none. i see "Disabled by remote phone administrator"

    I don't want a pin lock i just want the slide- is this a bug on my phone or is this a new thing that Verizon is enforcing?

    Do you have exchange server or good messaging? Is this a company phone?

    If you don't mind using the non-Motorola email program you can download this slightly modified stock mail apk from the Nexus One. It has been modified to not require any pin for security. I just downloaded it and it works great, actually prefer it to the regular Droid X mail application.

    You have to realize that your company is just trying to protect their data from being stolen or misused if your phone is lost. It's a pushed security policy.

    Hi guys, I removed my work email and the administrator rights for it and I still have only the high security lock options. All swipe and face lock etc is still disabled....very annoying.

    Can you help?

    Delete the security certificates first and you'll regain access to the low and medium security options
