Maiden post. Be kind to me!
I'm here on behalf of a friend (he delivers my medications, so you could say that he saves my life) who has inherited a BlackBerry Bold 9700(I think) from his son. His son insisted on his setting a password (wise) but now he has to unlock it almost every time he uses it.
Is it possible to be prompted for the password upon power-on, but not after that?
What choices are available? I skimmed the manual but there didn't seem to be many lock/unlock choices.
I've seen "Make call while locked" but yesterday he wanted to add a phone number to his contacts, and that required a password.
We're both of us in our 60's and out our stage, the need for security dwindles in the face of ease-of-use...

By default there is no option to set password prompt for device powered only. However, you can consider using 3rd party device lock/unlock app for that purpose.
Alternatively, you can try enabling SIM PIN request which will be asked on powered only.
Ah, yes, the SIM PIN password. I think that's how I run my own phone, and have for several generations of phone.
