    Ive read that locking/security can be bypassed pretty easily if somebody gets hold of your Droid X. Is this true, and if so, are there any good 'locking' apps available that offer reasonable security. (my BB wipes the phone after 10 wrong password attempts).

    Thanks.

    Once the Droid X gets the 2.2 update you can pick a password or pin number, or just pick a more complicated pattern.

    For additional security options check out Estrongs security manager in the marketplace.
