    Does anyone know of an application that loads in place of the default lock screen? Not the one with the "swipe" icon, but for those of us her have passcodes, or passwords on our device. I have been looking everywhere. I really like the patern code that is on Andriod, it's way nicer than the passcode plateform that we currently share with every other device os. I just would like to see something different and that could a little faster. I'm not sure if it's even possible with the current tools but it would be nice to have something better. Afterall that is why I love WebOs, it's just a noche above the other plateforms. (this lock basic code thing seems lazy though, I know there could be something better)

    there is a patch that lets you avoid entering the PIN altogether.

    Yeah I know about the patch but I really don't want the chance of someone finding my phone. It's filled with all kinds of sensitive information.

    Well, if you want something faster, just create a 1-digit PIN. A few updates ago (i think around 1.2), Palm removed the standard 4 digit PIN requirement, so you can just put a 1 digit PIN and press OK, and it doesnt take very long.

    hope this helps

    I can't bring myself to rely on it. For it to work the device has to be connected to the Data Network so if it was either not in service, in airplane mode, or I change my service before the device gets the wipe command than the person is free to look through whatever they wish.

    I did do that for awhile but my 13 yr old little brother figured it out in just a couple minutes. So I figured I may want to make it a little more complicated. Thanks though.
