    I have my corporate emails on my iPhone which requires me to have a passcode. Is there any way that I can bypass the requirement and turn the passcode off?

    For those of you unfamiliar with the scenario, where normal phones have an on/off toggle in the settings, my phone does not.

    No. That is setup by your IT department at your work. There is no way to bypass it short of removing the email account.

    I'm glad there's no way to do this. It's turned on for a reason, so that if you lose your phone, or it's stolen, no one else can read your corporate email. Wise up.:rolleyes:

    I fully understand the reason it's turned on for. However, I (as well as the IT department) have the ability to wipe the phone instantly. And maybe the fact that I haven't lost my phone for as long as I can remember gives me enough confidence to be without the passcode.

    For someone who use the phone as much as I do in as many different capacities as I do, it gets truly annoying to type it in constantly.

    I'm plenty "wised up." I just understand my risks and wish to take the calculated route for my convenience.

    Yes you might be, but clearly your employer isn't.

    If you do want it removed it will have to be configured at the Exchange level.

    If you do end up trying to hack it to remove it, is it really potentially worth your job?

    +1 OP Think what would happen if you were mugged... Corporate stuff is locked down for a reason. I doubt you will get IT to agree with removing the lockdown.

    I deal with plenty 'wised up' people who have corporate Blackberrys. As if having never lost a phone is an accurate predictor. What these 'experts' ignore is they are not taking the risk, the corporation is.

    Oh yes, let's have a different corporate policy for those people who have shown a skill for not losing a phone. Typically, it's upper level executives, who would have the most sensitive emails, who think they should be exempt from corporate policy. "Yes, we secure our Blackberrys and iPhones for mid-level managers but our Sr. VPs and CEO devices are wide open." Instead of setting the example, they want exempted.

    Remote wipe can only be used after the person notices the phone has been lost or stolen. Nothing like being told on Monday morning, "The last time I remember having it was Friday afternoon."
