    I am and have been a long time Blackberry user but have my first iPhone arriving on Monday. I really depend on the password vault that keeps all of your passwords and other information secure. Does the iPhone have such a thing?:confused:

    I have already downloaded the latest iTunes and assume that when I get my phone, I simply plug it in and iTunes will take me through the rest of the process. I am wanting to use the SIM that comes in the iPhone, so will it move service over to this new SIM? My Blackberry SIM is old and shows some wear. ;)

    Sorry newbie questions, just remember that not too long ago you wondered some of the same things I am now:eek:

    :apple:

    I found a cool app called Keeper by Callpod. Seems pretty good so far and very similar to the password keeper on the BlackBerry platform. Best of all, it is free:)

    I use an app called Kepper. Also free and does a nice job.

    I currently use lockbox. It's also free (with a paid version available).

    It does the job fine. I just recently downloaded it so I haven't played with the computer sync yet. I was just looking at some other similar apps and it looks like most of them charge for the complementing computer app. I'm not sure if lockbox does. If so, I may try to scour the market a lil bit more.

    But yes they have plenty of password vault alternatives. I'll probably look around more to see which is the best :)

    Keeper FTW. I have 20 passwords so far and the self-destructive function is pretty cool.

    I use mSecure, and am very happy with it. I went with this one because I liked the UI and features best (duh!). It's 2.99. It has blowfish encryption, a "self destruct" option, and very handy profiles (e.g. bank accounts, credit cards, memberships, websites, etc, as well as user-defined profiles). The desktop companion it syncs to is $10 though.

    wow but 40 bucks for the Mac app. It seems pretty neat, but I think that's pretty overkill for what I'm needing from it

    $40 for the Mac app is well worth it.

    Best. Mac. App. EVER.

    Try the demo. You'll love it.

    I agree, $40 sounds like a lot for a password keeper, but it is SO worth it! My passwords sync beautifully between the Mac and iPhone apps, and even if you're not going to be using it on the Mac the iPhone app is also a great standalone app. Highly recommended!
