P800 Security

I asked a few months ago how one can password protect the P800. Some kind soul pointed me towards the screensaver option which requires a password when re-activating the phone.

However unbelieveably all you have to do to bypass this password protection is to switch the phone off and then back on!!

I've got over 800 contacts with loads of personal details plus loads of other private stuff such as emails, sms's, personal finance sheets etc. I would hate to lose my phone and know that somebody will have access to all my personal information. I've never know a PDA (even the crappiest PocketPC's!) that hasn't had a password protection ability.

Is this an ridiculously stupid oversight by SE??
