You know, I didn't realize that your phone shows when the password screen
is on! Never paid attention. <sheepish grin> I have mine set to never ask
for the password, but the password is set. That way, nobody can change the
owner info, or even view it without the password, which I have always
thought was a good compromise. But now I'm thinking of changing it. I will
probably set it to once an hour or once a day. Pretty slick.

BTW, I also have a backdrop that always shows my address and phone number.
I think that might also help. (It's the backdrop by the now extinct Power
Pen software, for those curious ones)
