If/ when an A6 jailbreak is available I'll be using Exchange Unlock again. It can't come soon enough! I hate having to use a passcode.
amen

Yeah, you can..but I still think a 4digit passcode which is activated every single minute is more secure.

I wish I could set my phone to require a passcode to power off. That way if it's ever stolen, the thief would not be able to turn it off and disconnect it from the network, so I'd be able to track it down with Find My iPhone.

No, I think it's foolish to have one, at least in the case on why my entire family has one on their phone. My dad doesn't want my mom to go snooping in his phone, my mom doesn't want him to do the same thing, and either does my little brother. I don't have one on my devices and never have.

And the funny thing is that I have access to their iCloud and iTunes accounts, aswell as their e-mail accounts, so it's not like it works anyway.

I also have their passcodes.

Complex after five minutes locked. Why did you make I like ponies mutually exclusive

I think the full keyboard should come up regardless of having only numbers. Only numbers already tells the thief you only have numbers.

Find My Friends requires your password unless you have PassCode set. This would allow him (and me) to access that, and other similar features, more easily when one doesn't really have the need for one to begin with.

Yeah, and once you have a passcode you don't have to enter Find My iPhone/Friends password again pretty cool huh?

PROTIP : If you have a passcode on your device and for some reason or another you are trying to recover your data from the device after water damage or severe damage to the device. You will be unable to access it because you will need to enter a passcode before given iTunes access.

Take off your passcode if you live a wild lifestyle

Used to have one. Started as a simple one, then went to a more complicated one. But my phone basically lives in my pocket these days, so i don't feel the need to have one- at least not for now.

I have too much sensitive stuff on my phone not to have one. I just use a four digit pass code.

Btw, keeping a good eye on your phone doesn't matter too much if you are mugged. I've only been mugged once but they didn't take my phone which was a dumb phone at the time.

It is? I enter it in one time in the morning, and that allows me to sign into Find My Friends all day long without entering my Apple ID every time.. how is that pointless?

If I travel, I'll use a 4-digit passcode. At home and for normal day-to-day stuff I don't use a passcode because I got tired of entering it. I know it doesn't make any sense - I spend 90-95% of my time at home, but that's when I don't passcode the phone.
