Its nice to have a password protected BB, but its also annoying when you have to enter it EVERY time you want to use it.
I came across a tip on BlackBerry Cool that is pretty neat. Set your password to "bnm$". Then to unlock, all you do is start with b and slide over to the enter key. Its kind of fun and reminds me of the iPhone "slide to unlock" function. You can make it longer as well if you want to feel more secure. It could be, "cvbnm$" if you want.
I know that some of you have no choice when it comes to setting a password or not. Most corporate BBs on BES require you to set a password. I think this is an interesting solution. I've been using it for a day now, and it hasn't gotten old yet. We'll see though.
Give it a try.
