I am having a nightmare of a time with the new Samsung Galaxy S 2, on AT&T. Initially it would not connect to Exchange 2010 using the built in account connector. A week later that now works, having changed nothing on my end. Now it connects OK, but will only allow me to set up a complex password on the device to unlock it [no PIN / swipe etc.] despite using the same policy as everyone else. On another Android I have [Atrix 4G] I can use the finger print reader, pin code & swipe pattern and switch between them fine. Our older WinMo 6.5 phones are working fine with pin numbers only. I am using the same Active Sync policy. The phone is set to lock after 10 minutes of inactivity, and I don’t want to leave it much longer than that if I can avoid it.
Ultimately I need to be able to set it up to do the swipe pattern, or at least the PIN number, some of our users need to make phone calls in the car & a complex password is not going to fly. I need the phone to sync with exchange for email, contacts, calendar & tasks, as well as the security features like full encryption & remote wipe [a must] and the recover lost password & failed logins functionality.
