    I read on the front page how others were having the proximity issue like I was and that if you did a reset of settings then it could fox it. So I went ahead and did that. I went in and started changing all my settings back and I realized that the only option I had for my passcode was to require it immediately and not after 5 min like I usually do. I've done some searching and saw that a google or exchange account could cause this.. But I only have mobile me.. So that can't be it.. The only other option I've seen is to do a complete restore.. Whig I'd really really like to stay away from. Does anyone have any ideas?? Thanks!

    Found the same results you did, ended up just doing a complete restore

    Same here, I was hoping they had the same settings as the Auto-Lock. Unless there's another work around that we don't know?

    SE Penna.
    This is a known(?) bug in iOS4. There's a few threads where users have the same problem after a full reset. I suggest doing a backup BEFORE you do a reset.

    It would take me far too long to get everything back up and running if I did a full restore... So I guess I'll just wait it out and hope that the antenna update fixes this as well...:confused:

    I Have Time Options

    I have the 3G updated to iOS4. I have several time options for the passcode, I also have AOL, GMail, and Mobile Me accounts.

    I was hoping 4.0.1 would fix this.. No such luck. Has anyone found absolution short of wiping the whole phone clean and Starting new.. That would take FAR Too long...

    You can get the settings back by using the iPhone Configuration Utility - the details to this solution are on this forum somewhere...

    However, I did this yesterday after experiencing the exact same Passcode issue, and then this morning on my way to work I found all my iPod content is no longer there (apparently). Googling this issue suggests that use of the iPhone Config Util can cause this problem...

    It's a never ending succession of problems. My third iPhone since the 3G model, and I've never experienced anything like it!
