I discovered a strange behaviour on Nokia 700 Belle device. Applications using startup list management API don't start, if secure code enabled and you don't enter the code quick enough.
The option is found under Settings -> Phone -> Phone management -> Security settings -> Phone and SIM card -> Lock code.
Setting ”Lock if SIM card changed” to “Yes” forces device to prompt for security code on boot, if no SIM card inserted.
If the code entered within 10 seconds, the application launches just fine. Waiting a bit longer prevents auto started applications to launch.
In contrast on Symbian Anna devices auto started applications start normally regardless how long you wait before entering the code.
Is this a new feture of Belle devices or a bug? Any ideas how to overcome the issue.
