    Since upgrading my iPhone 4 to 5.1.1, the phone bypasses the passcode by itself often. By that, I mean I slide to unlock and it just unlocks, when it should be asking for my passcode. I'd say it happens every 1/5 times I unlock it. I tried rebooting it a few times and it hasn't changed. Anyone else having this problem?

    So you lock your phone and immediately slide to unlock and there is no code? Is there a delay in the passcode setting itself? IE: you can choose "immediately" or "5 minutes" etc. Check that.

    Nope. I've had my passcode set to be required at, on various times, immediately, 1 minute, 5 minutes, and 1 hour, and the iPhone always behaved exactly as it should in each situation.

    What's your passcode required timeframe?

    My passcode is set at 1 minute, but I can let the phone sit for 10 minutes or 3 hours after pressing the sleep button and it unlocks without a passcode.

    Have you tried removing the passcode altogether (not disabling), rebooting the iPhone and then installing the passcode as if it was the first time?

    Are you using an app that delays or prevents locking the phone? Is it plugged into power when this happens?

    I have never seen this at all, on any of the 4 iOS phones or 3 iPads. We have a standard 5 minute delay and nobody at home ever remembers not having to enter a passcode (We have the numeric set) after the 5 minute time.

    While I wont say it's impossible, I will say it's unusual and not been seen here. Is the phone JB at all?
