    Screen Lock

    How can I have the N1 "lock phone" after say "5 minutes of inactivity" like it does on my EVO. I cannot find this option and I have to enter a password as soon as the screen times out. Thanks

    If they were only on your phone--I don't think so

    If you had them on sdcard try this or something similar:

    Recuva - Undelete, Unerase, File and Disk Recovery - Free Download


    Also, if you don't already--start backing up your sdcard to pc and use MyBackUp Pro to bu apps, system, screens, playlists, etc etc

    I don't use them, but you might check out some of the lockscreen widgets on the Market

    Also, I am on MIUI now so can't test, but maybe ADW Launcher--it has a lockscreen feature--I don't mess with it either, so not exactly sure of features for time off--

    Your welcome Tammy

    It just takes time and lots of reading forums and research

    Always have current bu's of sdcard and phone (nandroid) and you can recovr from almost anything

    Sorry Tammy, if you are not rooted, you won't be doing full phone bu's (nandroid). It is like a full image backup on a pc. You can get MyBackUp Pro from Market and it does a good job on backing up many things.

    Just keep a recent sdcard bu on pc--and your photos will be ok

    Tammy, there's a few apps that will automatically upload your photos as you take them, thus giving you an online backup.

    Take a look at the Google+ app, or SugarSync
