Unlocking Options with Exchange Password

Like many of you, in order to sync via Exchange, you have to have a password set up to unlock. Can this be byp a s s e d by other locking type programs? Stock password screen is a little dull.....

I have iGate, which is basically just a different skin---I like it, but the numbers are small. From my understanding, options like S2U2 don't bypass the password requirement. Anyone know if TouchLockPro or Throttlelock does this?

Re: Unlocking Options with Exchange Password

Just tried the trial of Throttlelock. It does not remove the need of the numeric password for exchange sync'ing.....

Re: Unlocking Options with Exchange Password

Is this a setting on the exchange server? I did not know there was a policy to enforce that

When you set up the device to sync with an exchange server, the security settings of the server (as set by the IT guys) require that the password of WinMo be activated. Most have it locking every 5-15 min or so.... I'm fine with locking, but I'd like to have a program that does it more creatively/or more stylish than the standard screen....

Hey... dunno if this helps, but here's what I do... I wrote up a simple MortScript that does the following (attaching to this post):

Code:
RegWriteDWord("HKLM","Security\Policies\Policies","00001023",1)
After you run that the first time, you can go into Start -> Settings -> Lock and make sure your settings are as follows:


1) "Prompt if unused for" checked
2) set to 24 hours
3) Simple PIN (with my PIN of choice entered)


Then, since the Exchange server policy gets reapplied daily (once a day as far as I can tell), when I see the lock prompt happen the first time (usually late at night or early AM for me), I unlock with my PIN and run the mortscript once manually. This basically resets the policy to prompt me every 24 hours instead of every 5 minutes... which means I never see that PIN prompt for the rest of the day (except on startup).. and for me, unlocking and running the mortscript once a day isn't the end of the world.

I've considered writing the MortScript to monitor for the reg change (say every 5 minutes or something) and auto-apply the fix, but I wasn't sure how that might affect battery life (and my Touch Pro doesn't need any more excuses to have it's battery drained )...

Re: Unlocking Options with Exchange Password

Try this from Zenyee. It lets you set the security timeout for up to 24 hours.

I've used it for a couple years on a couple different phones. Apparently it resets itself every time you use the phone, as I have never had to unlock it with the password since installing it.
