Turning off "Lock" on Windows Mobile 6.1

I installed a program which forced me to add a PIN to lock my phone. I assume this was a registry edit. Anyone know which key I can edit it turn off the password protection? Under "settings", the checkbox on the Password tab for "Prompt if device unused for" is greyed out, otherwise I would just uncheck that box.

Also, on the screen that says "Emergency phone calls can be made" when entering a PIN, anyone know how one would make the emergency call, out of curiousity?

im not sure if this is what you mean, but if you want your phone to lock automatically when you turn it off without having to use a pin then you need a program called device lock 1.1

Sounds like your using the "Lock" app in windows? All you have to do to get rid is uncheck the box "Prompt if device unused for" box you'll get rid of it!!!

Do you have any corporate data, programs, etc on the device? and if you want to place an emergency call you dial 911 on the pad as if that were the code then the "unlock" soft key changes to "dial" or "send"
