I really like the pattern unlock that android has, but I don't like having to both slide to unlock, then pattern unlock. Any way to disable the first slide lock only? I've searched, an found a few old threads but nothing helpful. Applications like nolock, disable both lock screens.
Is there an option or app to disable the slide to unlock but keep the pattern lock (or PIN lock on Froyo)? It seems kind of redundant to have both slide and pattern unlocks. I have Android 2.2 and was hoping this would be "fixed" with the upgrade.
I hate sliding my droid keyboard open and still having to unlock it on the screen. In every other case, having to unlock it doesn't bother me, so I'm just looking for an app that will bypass the lock when you slide the keyboard open.
My nephew was playing with my phone and evidently set a password on the phone to wake it up. He told me the password and I can use it to wake the phone up just fine but I use the slide screen, but now there is both password unlock and the slide screens. I cant figure how to remove the password one
I had the slide lock/accidental touch lock disabled in 2.1 bone stock phone. Got the 2.2 OTA. Installed without issue and has addressed many of my previous complaints (VPN, WiFi, speaker volume). Under settings / location&security, in the security section, I see only two options 'set up screen lock' (pattern/pin/password) and 'security lock timer'. Where is the option to turn on the slide lock? VZW support was completely clueless, as I have (sadly) come to expect. They transferred me to Motorola support, who says there should be a 3rd option there for the screen lock.
I did not have the slide lock screen activated when I upgraded to 2.2, so that option is not available anymore as everyone knows. If I do a reset, will it reappear? I don't want it to, if I can't turn if off.
Not sure where to post this but i am gonna do it here and hopefully it is helpfull to someone.Just watched this video over on the dailymobile.se website and some guy goes through how he has customised his nexus with different apps and there is one for diabling the lock screen and using the power button to wake it up without having to swipe to unlock.He uses an app called "No Lock" and i am now using it and it saves me valuable finger swipeing time.How to customize your Android phone with different apps (video)Also there are a load of other customisation he has done but he goes through that aswell and names all his apps etc.
I want to make my app launched when the Android OS startup. I can make it, but when the Android OS startup, the screen lock is launched, how can I remove the screen lock launch so that I can get into my app directly? I am doing this in my embedded system.
It was an awesome feature on 2.1 on the droidx... now in froyo it's gone?Am I the only person that doesn't have monkeys in my pocket accidentally activating my phone? When I turn it on, I want it on, not "ready to be unlocked".
How do you do it? IMHO it's one big pain in the xxx! Just makes one more thing to do to bring it up from sleeping.Guess I will see what happens with accidental screen touches.From what I see you'd have to hit the on/off button(unlikely) or the home page button(more likely) to get it to come out of resting. Screen touches do not wake it.
there's any way to disable text message previews on my lock screen? Surely this represents a massive security flaw- having the text for anyone to read without needing to unlock- so I would have thought there was some way to remove this?
I updated my moment to the official 2.1 firmware from Sprint yesterday.I've looked in the menus, but can't find a setting for it.Does anyone know a way to disable the fade in/out of the screen when unlocking or putting the device back to sleep?
Bought a lock screen app from the market I like it.. it works good however the default lockscreen still comes up I have to unlock that one then the one. Purchased how do I disable the default lock screen?

When i use Google maps the screen goes black which i have to go in and unlock the phone again to see were im going.. Is there any way i can disable that screen lock when using Google maps?
Just got my new Vibrant delivered yesterday so now the questions start.
1. Is there a way to disable the automatic screen locking and allow me to just press the on/off switch to lock? There are many cases where I don't want the screen to lock automatically - eg. listening to music. But then when I put the phone in my pocket, case, whatever, I'd like to press a button to lock it.
I'm on a Samsung G3 and just updated to 4.3. Enjoying it for the most part but the new lock screen is giving me some trouble. I preferred the one from 4.1 but I'm trying to adapt. Downloaded DashClock and added weather, email, and SMS extensions but I keep getting the stock Messaging widget popping up when I get a message (see image). I do want my phone to vibrate and the screen to turn on when I get a message, I just don't want to deal with the extra widgets.
DashClock is my default widget (got rid of the standard one and dragged DashClock to the right). Is there a way to disable all these extra widgets?
By the way, I did try disabling multiple widgets in the settings after setting DashClock to be my default and it kicked DashClock out and reverted back to the stock lock screen.
Is there a simple setting that will automatically disable my screen lock when I'm at home or at work? If not a setting, is there an app you recommend?
Long version: I'm fairly new to "devices". I got my first, a wifi-only Samsung tablet about 6 months ago and use it sporadically, mostly when traveling, but also it's become my semi-permanent music player at home. I got my first smart phone, a MotoX about 2 weeks ago. Love the MotoX and feel it's exceptionally well designed, easy to configure, and useful, but I have nothing to compare it to other than my wife's IPhone 5.
I have done a web search for this information. I have also searched and scanned around these forums, but didn't find anything I felt comfortable with in terms of how fussy or current the set up steps are or how current the app recommendations are. The two apps I've come across are, IIRC, called "Delayed Lock (trial or paid)" and "Unlock with WiFi".
My question is - today, mid-October 2013 - how do you recommend disabling screen lock while at certain locations. I imagine I'll be using it strictly at work or at home, both of which have wifi I connect to automatically. I might want to disable screen lock while driving, but so far have found my MotoX's Assist driving mode to work very well. I might get a Bluetooth device and at that point would probably want to disable the screen lock while that bluetooth device was connected.
