    hi everyone

    One of the first things I did with 2.1 was to turn on the erase data after 10 failed attempts feature.

    But I soon turned it off because I'm not sure about something.

    Is it 10 failed attempts in a row or just 10 failed attempts altogether?

    Because I'm impatient It always takes me 2 attempts to enter my passcode. Are each of those failed attempts counting towards my 10? Or once I successfully log into my phone, are the counts reset?

    Thanks
