If you set a password and the phone is locked, the incoming call still gets through and Phone App gets its way to activate. Is there a way to "white list" your own application for password protected device?
Basically what I would like to be able to do is to activate application on top of password-protected home screen.
Or is it that only BB native apps are whitelisted?

Only the native apps that I know of can actually capture input on a locked device. I think you can push a popup but it still wont receive any key input until the device is unlocked.

I am only speculating based on things I have read around the forum (can't remember who/where) but I believe it has less to do with whitelisting and more to do with pop-up screen priority. The lock-out being considered a modal screen that has to be handled before getting to anything below. Third party apps can not get a higher priority screen than the lock-out screen or most of the system prompts such as the incoming call screen therefore they can never take focus on top the way the incoming call does.
