Apple ID Password

Recently, every time I unlock my iphone 4, a popup occurs requiring me to enter my Apple ID password.  This never occurred previously.  I checked the iphone settings and couldn't find any way to disengage it.  Anyone have any suggestions?

 

Thank You

Re: Apple ID Password

I agree with wingrider.  It's got to be some application that's attempting to connect using your Apple ID, and it's got the wrong password (maybe you recently changed the password for your Apple ID and didn't get it updated in an application?).  There is no setting that would ask for your Apple ID password upon unlocking the phone.  If you have a MobileMe or iCloud account, go to Settings  >  iCloud and verify/re-enter your ID/password in there.  Also, go into your email settings and verify/re-enter your ID/password there.
