    I've never used the encryption feature on any of my Android phones. I was scanning the net for comments about its functionality, but I couldn't find anything that answered my questions.

    Anyone here have their phone and/or MicroSD encrypted?

    - How exactly is the data encrypted? Can I still access the content via USB?
    - Is there a hit in performance because the data is encrypted?
    - Is the data encryption disabled after entering in the code? How long does this process take?
    - If I also encrypt the MicroSD card, does that mean it's not readable on a computer with an SD or USB adapter?

    I'm especially curious after reading this article a few months ago. The FBI couldn't crack a pimp's (yes, a pimp) pattern lock phone and had to inlist Goggle's help. I don't know if they were ever able to gain access. http://www.pcworld.com/article/25190...tumps_fbi.html

    Any feedback would be appreciated.

    I'm curious about this as well. You'll need someone that's enabled encryption to answer your questions, but I did find this info from the developer: Notes on the implementation of encryption in Android 3.0.
