    Before I updated to 3.0, I had the ability to set my passcode lock to different time intervals. Now after the upgrade to 3.0, the only option I have is immediately. Has anyone else seen this? Anyone know of a fix?

    Is there a configuration profile installed on your phone? Check under Settings > General > Profile. There will only be a profile menu if one is installed.

    Works the same as it always has as far as I can see: I have mine set to lock after an hour and it does just that.

    It's happening to someone I work with. We have a corporate security policy pushed out to all mobile devices that forces users to use a strong password, six characters. After updating to 3.0 there is only "immediately" in the passcode lock option.

    I do not have a corporate server policy as everyone here is still in love with BB. I did however notice it changed from 5 min to 1 min. But the 5 min option is back. I suspect there was a new default to immediate. Contact your IT guys and let them know to look into it and push it back to 1 min - 5 min if they will allow it. Immediate seems extreme unless you are working with super secret stuff.

    Same thing happened to me after the 3.0 upgrade - delete the Exchange email account setup in Mail.

    Passcode options come back, reset to a higher value, then add back the Exchange Mail account.

    Works for me - immediate passcode options now replaced by more options.

    That's exactly what I did when the same thing happened to me. Weird though.
