    Encryption

    So with the latest update we now have device/SD card encryption available. Anybody actually using it? I for one aren't....yet.

    I haven't either. I don't know if it will slow things down at all. I was hoping someone else would volunteer to be the guinea pig.

    I turned on encryption for phone and SD card. Rebooted phone and let it "encrypt" the data. Powered off phone, removed SD card and put card in laptop, was able to mount card and read all data without issues. Put SD card back in phone, powered on and plugged phone in to laptop via USB cable, but did not unlock phone. Phone was not mounted, so could not read data from it.

    Am I missing something?

    The encryption only applies to new files you put on your SD card after you enable encryption. Try moving a word document over to your phone and then moving it back...it should be encrypted then.

    Tried that and still no encryption on phone or SD card of the new files/folders I placed on phone and card.

    I'm going to do a factory reset, wipe the SD card, enable encryption and test. Trying to verify data is encrypted to protect corporate data and use the phone while meeting security policy.

    Just yesterday my phone stopped letting me use exchange because it said encryption was required. I figured no problem, I'll do it. Problem is, it won't let me, I keep getting an error saying there is not enough memory.

    I've tried clearing my phone's internal storage, and sd card to no avail. I figured they must be referring to RAM, so I tried force closing all running apps and it still didn't work. I've also tried clearing caches, rebooting, etc.

    Any ideas?
