    How do I remove my security PIN?

    No problem changing my PIN through settings/location & security/change screen lock: "Change or disable pattern, PIN or password"
    But the option for NONE (I assume this means no PIN) is grayed out "Disabled by remote phone administrator." Also the option for a Pattern instead of a PIN is grayed out. So I can change my PIN, but how the heck do I remove it all together?
    I want to be able to use the slider lock only, without having to enter a PIN every time I put my phone down for 5 minutes. When I first got the phone I used it with no PIN for weeks, so it's possible... -Technically Challenged Old Man

    The things you speak of occur when the phone is synced to an exchange email server. Most exchange servers require pin lock. Even if you remove the account your phone is still locked up. I don't know of a way to undo this outside of a factory reset.

    If you wish to remain synced to an exchange server but do not want the forced pin lock you will have to run a custom rom. Liberty 1.5 or 2.0.1 block this. So does Apex 1.4.
