I got the Hero last week (replacing a Palm Centro), and so far this phone is outstanding. Love the SenseUI, the feel of the operating system and the quality of the phone. I've been doing a lot of customizing in the operating system and have the following questions. Currently my set up is this: I turn on the phone and swipe down to remove the home screen, then I enter my log in security using the patten program. Is there a way to bypass the swipe screen and go directly to the patten app? And more importantly, is there a way to program the phone to delay the need to re-enter the security patten for a certain number of minutes. (I could do this on the Centro). What I would like the result to be is that if I turn off the phone and decide, say 10 seconds later to turn it back on, can I delay the need to re-enter the pass code somehow (for a number of minutes that I choose)?
