Does anyone use encryption (the one you select in security settings)? It says that you need to enter a pin every time you turn the phone on. I was wondering if knock on counts, or if you have to use another code - which would be dumb?

Since no one seems to have tried it I did. Knock on doesn't seem to count.

I thought it meant you need a PIN whenever you turn the phone on/off, not when you wake it up... Knock-knock just works for waking it up..

I thought it meant when the phone is powering on and off as well. The knock on feature wouldn't be a good encryption password. Although I think you can use either a PIN or the grid to swipe a password.
