    i just went from the HTC EVO to the Epic, and one thing i wanna find out. is there any unlock pattern or password or anythingfor the Epic? they really need to update this phone with one because i cant lock my phone. People could just read my stuff whenever they want to or if im away from it. its mostly pictures. what can i do for now, and think they will make a Update for this?

    It has a lock pattern just like the Evo does. :)

    It locks as soon as the screen turns off. Alternatively, you can use "lockpatternonoff" by curvefish to toggle if the pattern lockscreen comes on or not.

    As an example, if the phone is in my pocket, I toggle it on so that I have to pattern unlock it. If the phone is in my holster, I keep it toggled off.

    No problem. If you want me to explain lockpatternonoff a bit more, let me know.

    you should break this out into it's own thread. there is no stock settings (i don't think any android device provides for it at this time) but check the market for encryption apps.

    good luck and report back if you find a good one.
