Ok, call me crazy/paranoid but why is the maximum length of the lock-code 10 numbers?

My normal (secure) passwords are around 20-30 characters and that's with letters, numbers and symbols.

If I would follow xkcd's proposal to use words it would be even longer.

At least when the KB TOH is out could you relax the lock-code restrictions?

(I would use partition encryption if it was available too)

In update10 (most likely) default max lock code lenght has been changed to 42 chars (there is config key so that in future activesync can change the lenght value according to organization security policy) and we have also added option for qwerty support for the devicelock code. So you need to wait a bit, but the support is coming this year, so you can start using xkcd passwords (I'm already using them in my devel device).
