    Sorry if this has been covered before, but I did some searches and cant come across anyting.

    The only thing my GS2 doesnt do that I wish it could is to set differnt screen timeout and pin lock times. Is this really not possible with stock firmware on this phone? My 3 year old crappy bberry does this no problem (although it is set by my employers enterprise server) - screen times out at 30 seconds, but doesnt pin/passowrd lock for 10 minutes.

    I have my screen timeout to 15 or 30 seconds, but it is just a pain to have to enter pin evertime I wake it up. I have the phone rooted but havent installed any customer roms. I have Widgetlocker installed, but as far as I can see it doesnt have this as an option. I have read that Juicedefeneder Ultimatre does have this as a setting, but i dont want to buy the app simply to do this.

    Any ideas?

  2. You can change the screen timeout by just going to settings, display, screen time-out.

    I realize that, but what I would like to do is set screen time out for say 15 or 30 seconds, but set it so pin/passwprd/pattern lock doesnt activate for say 5 minutes of inactivity. I know it is possible on blackberry, and it may be possible on the SGS2 with a paid app, but it just seems it shoudl be a simple thing to do right our of the box.
