    I turned on my Screen Lock pin function after a while of having it off because it pretty much reduces the speed of my Pre. Low and behold, it still slows down the Pre. Either the screen doesnt come on or if it comes on, it'll take a while to respond to my touches. I then turned it off and the Pre responded really fast and started theh app i wanted really fast too. I pretty much put all the stuff i dont want people to see in Zumodrive and then decided to use the Pre with the screen lock pin function off. Try it. You'll see how much faster your Pre is without the lock function. I really wish i can lock my phone and not have to wait a minute for it to come on...But its all good, i guess...

    I simply turned on Homing Device and added everyone i know, incase if someone steals my phone i can easily track them with Homing Device. Homing Device and GPS fix (i set mine to look for a fix every 25mins even if the GPS already did itself) gives you an accurate location of where the person who took your phone is at. I remember when i left my phone in my GF's car on purpose, then went on my computer and sent the keyphrase via IM to my phone. It worked!

    I've never noticed my device being slowed down by the lock screen. On another note, I believe Homing Device has to actually be running to work, the app could quickly and easily be closed, or the phone could be rebooted.

    That's what I use, the instructions aren't the best but if you have any common sense at all it's straight forward. I can essentially track my device on any computer and see where it's at down to the driveway via google maps satellite view. This runs in the background (no icon, notification, etc.) and starts at every boot so if someone was to steal your phone they wouldn't even know it's running.

    I wonder if making a patch for that is even possible. I too hate pressing enter after entering my PIN. Its weird because its just one button, but for some reason, I dont like it. lol
