    I just realized that I do not have the "Never" option for auto-lock on my jailbroken iPhone 5s. I compared it to a friends phone running the same ios version (8.1.2) and she had the "Never" option. For other reasons, I restored my iPhone just now and set it up as a new device. Immediately after restoring the iPhone I had the "Never" option, but right after jailbreaking and activating Cydia the "Never" option disappeared. Anyone else noticed this? Any idea why this happens with the jb?

    TIA

    Do you have an Exchange email synched to your phone?

    It is. Some Exchange administrators prevent a device from never locking. You could try either contacting your IT department or installing something from Cydia that prevents that option from not appearing.

    Thanks for this information - I was driving myself crazy trying to figure it out. It makes sense that my company would set this restriction, so I'll just live with it.....I'm just glad to know root cause.

    Thanks again!!!!!
