For ex. I got tired of using my passcode, but I'd like to be able to lock it if I ever lost it.

So, I went on my iPhone and disabled the passcode... Logged on to iCloud.com and remotely locked my iPhone, the message came up saying "The remote iPhone has been locked with its existing passcode". My phone did lock, but I just swiped to unlock and it didn't ask for a code since I disabled it. Shouldn't find my iPhone set a passcode if there's not one already set?

Is Find My iPhone enabled in the iCloud setting of your iPhone?

It should since I just tested it recently. :/
I also got the email that says my phone had been locked.

Agreed. I got an email as well, and it said specifically "with your new lock code"... and I'm like what? I never set a lock code, neither did the thing prompt me to set one, lol.

I did initially, but then I removed it to see if iCloud would allow me to set a new one, and it didn't. It just locked the phone, but never set a code.
