    Hey soon the iPhone is coming to the UK and I'm really looking forward to buying the iPhone.

    However, I noticed that there doesn't seem to be a passwort protection at boout-up. So if my mobile would have been stolen everyone could use it, couldn't they?

    Plus if there would be a password protection any person standing beside me would see what my password is because of the nice big keyboard. isn't that a problem for you iPhone users?

    Just curious what you think about it.

    You can assign a device password (that is enabled when the device sleeps/restarts) and a sim password.

    After about 3 days of having your iphone you will learn to trust the auto-correction and text with both hands really fast so the person behind you will just see a bunch of letters popping up and 2 thumbs moving really fast and their brain wont be able to figure out what you typed:)

    Sounds fine. Let's hope the computer won't save the password somewhere because you mentioned auto correction.
