I am unable to turn off my passcode. That option is 'grayed' out so I can not choose it. Help.
Hi and welcome to the Forum!
With regards to your question I have a passcode and it shouldn't be doing this. When an app behaves strangely, and your settings is an app also, it is best to close it completely and then relaunch it. From the home screen do the four finger swipe up or double press the home button to reveal your multi task bar along the bottom. It will show all the apps that you have opened at one time or another. Long press the app until it jiggles and a red minus sign will appear above it. Press the minus sign, this will close the app, not delete it. It's also a good idea to close all these apps, as it helps the iPad run smoothly, I do mine every night. Check and see if it is operating now and let us know.

Thanks for your response. I did as you suggested and that option is still not available. Any other ideas?
Are you using your employers iPad, or connecting to an enterprise email system through an Exchange server?
Your employer has set the passcode restriction. You cannot bypass it. Disable the Exchange Server access to email and it will go away.
Yes I guess this is the reason.
I just received my brand iphone 4S ,,,initially I had my google account (IMAP) but it didn't force me to use passcode, once I set up my work's exchange email the phone forced me to use passcode.
The option settings > general > passcode grayed out (i.e not active)
Hello where i can find the Disable the Exchange Server access to email
Can you guide me where i can found this options, thanks
Delete your Exchange account under Settings -> Mail, Contacts, Calendars. Select the account and click Delete.
