    So, I understand that getting a passcode wrong ten times deletes data. Is there anyway I can disable that??

    I had not heard of that, but I'll be the first to ask the obvious question: how can you get a passcode wrong 10 times?

    There are those idiots out there who take phones and lock the owners out of them for the hell of it.

    No...

    This is a security feature. The ideology behind it is if someone foreign comes across your phone, they can't access any of the sensitive information on it.

    Why would that happen? How does your phone get in the hands of the wrong people? And wouldn't they just steal it?

    You want answers and help from folks? Perhaps a better way to go about it would be to not be a D.
    How about you skip using the pass code, or stop passing out drunk.

    I haven't heard of anything like this, but the setting for it would almost certainly be under security...
