    I do on my iPad but not on my iPhone.

    I marked "no" since it is not something i would do normally. I am required by my place of work to have a complex password to access the system remotely, hence the passcode on the iPad.

    Just curious why you have it on the iPad but not on the iPhone. I'd think the iPhone would be more prone to someone messing with it or trying to swipe it. Just curious.

    As I stated in my post, the only reason for the passcode is our company's requirement.

    I have chosen to not use the iPhone for work and hence the no passcode on it.

    I've been locking phones for as long as I can remember. If I ever lose it, no one can get in it easily. For me it's better to be safe than sorry by locking it up.

    I voted NO.
    I had been using the pattern screen lock, but I just turned it off this week. It just became a hassle every time I wanted to check one little thing on the phone.


    BTW - Good poll question!

    We are in a different era. More people are using Smartphones, and tablets.
    When you leave your house or car, you lock it and set the alarm.
    So why would you not have your phone pass code/password protected?
    You would think with all the personal info stored on the devices, that protecting it should be done without a thought.
