    Have a function to ensure a password is needed in order to view pics/messages etc.
    Its stupid i have an LG Cookie and it doesnt have this feature. I dont know of many modern phones that do.
    My GF has to know who im texting and what the text is about and who i get a text from and what it says. I show her the pics from my holiday and she takes the phone and scrolls to find other pics. i dont know what shes trying to find, maybe shes expecting a pic of me doing some other girl? I dont know, i hate her behaviour its really annoying.
    Then when she sees, say a pic of my shirtless. She will ask when, where and why i took the pic. As if i took it to show to some other girl.

    This is why i just want to put my phone on a password lock down so i get some bloody privacy. Its really driving me away from her and makes me more inclined to see other people. I.e cheating.

    Pfft, if she's that much of an idiot about it then maybe its a new gf you need, not a password.

    a lot of phones do.
    Putting a password on all your messages/pictures is hardly going to make her more inclined to believe you're not cheating though is it ?

    I had the LG cookie , it's slow. And I lost it. So I got a cheap samsung U600 , and it has passwords. Samsung is the best for passwords.

    Trust TSR members to jump to the conclusion that you should dump your girlfriend. You shouldn't. However, you also shouldn't password-protect it, otherwise she'll think that you are hiding something, and it's likely that you'll be the one who's dumped. Talk to her about her insecurity and tell her that it bothers her... reassure her that you're not going to cheat on her or flirt with other girls, and that what she's doing is ridiculous. If, then, she carries on being insecure, it might be time to move on.

    That sounds really annoying. I have an LG too, it'd be a good feature to have, my mum's always trying to get into my phone!

    I think it would be better to have a function that would tell you when the person had read the text.
    Would save some grief for a lot of people :P

    I expect you'd find it perfectly reasonable if you found a picture of your girlfriend topless on her phone that she hadn't shown to you, right?

    I wouldn't give a balls if my g/f decided she needed to go through my phone.
    I don't do anything in my private life that I need to hide.

    Sounds like your g/f is a bit insecure and needs some reassurance and a bit of fuss + attention.

    You cant really compare. A topless girl isnt allowed to be shown before 8pm on tv, topless men are in nearly every single deodorant advert shown hundreds of times a day. In case you didnt realize, girls have breasts.
    Imo the male equivalent to a topless pic of a girl is a pic of a lad with his junk out, which then i would understand if she was funny about it.

    So why were you taking pictures of yourself topless?
