Samsung Fascinate :: Any Way To Change From Unlock Pattern To PIN

Oct 22, 2010

I just got this phone last week and I absolutely love it. I came from a blackberry and of course I was used to unlocking my phone with a PIN instead of the pattern (1st android owned) that this phone has. I was wondering if there is a way to have that option in my SF. I hate the pattern, I checked out the market and there is an app for that but the reviews were horrible. If this is even possible on this phone yet or I have to wait on the upcoming 2.2 update and yes my phone is not rooted.

Samsung I7500 :: Wrong Unlock Pattern - Can't Unlock

Oct 1, 2010

I've entered a wrong pattern too many times. The phone now asks for my gmail username and password. I tried to enter them, but it doesn't accept the credentials. They are certainly valid, I know because I logged in via web browser with the same name/pass and it works.

Samsung Moment :: App Or Option Where Can Use Pass-code To Unlock Phone Rather Than Pattern?

Nov 26, 2009

This was pointed out earlier by someone on a thread and I couldn't seem to find it. But just to point it out again the moment can be turned off or put on airplane mode even while its locked. This may be a bad thing if someone steals your phone and you want to use someones phone to either call or text it so that it will ring to find out who has it. All the thief has to do is put it on airplane mode or turn it off to deactivate ringers, sound, and gps.

Is there an app or option where I can use a passcode to unlock the phone rather than the pattern?And is there a way to track my phone through gps just in case it's lost or stolen?Any ideas or suggestions if a device someone rely relies on a lot is lost or stolen? My friend on his moment was able to add a message on the home screen saying "If found please contact "phone number" "email" and will be given a "$300" reward.

Samsung Fascinate :: Locking Pattern Used To Secure Phone?

Oct 2, 2010

I got my free Fascinate last night at Best Buy (upgraded from an old BB Curve). As a Droid newbie, so far I love this phone, except I'm a little disappointed with the "locking pattern" used to secure the phone. Is there another option available to lock the phone similar to using just a regular password?

Android :: Anyway To Enable The - Dot Unlock Pattern - Without The Swipe Down Unlock

Jul 2, 2010

This is for an EVO but i'm thinking maybe it'll be similar to other android phones. what i'd to set up is to have the phone require the 'dot unlock pattern' after it's been sitting for 5 minutes idle. when i set it up with AutoLock, whenever the screen turns off after 1 minute, it'll rqeuire me to do the slide down to unlock which i don't want.

Samsung Fascinate :: Pattern Locked - Google Sign In Won't Work

Sep 15, 2010

i got a fascinate like 2 days ago and i set a patter lock to it, i know this very well, its very simple but i was procratinating from my homework earlier and kept entering different patters because i hate homework and i have add. Anyways i did this to the point where it required a google id login. So i sigh and attempt to login, does not work, i try 10 more times before i find out that this is an ongoing android problem. I do a hard reset, still doesnt work. Now 5 hours later im pissed beyond belief wondering why google put so much effort into a dumb pattern lock and why it still does not work after a full restore.

Samsung Fascinate :: Remove Verizon Wireless From Pattern Lock Screen

Oct 4, 2010

I rooted my Samsung Fascinate. Installed Titanium Backup and managed to uninstall some bloatware.

I would like to remove the text "Verizon Wireless" from my pattern lock screen and replace it with my name.

When I rooted my HTC Eris and loaded KoasFroyo I encountered a similar situation where that ROM made it say Team AndIRC. I was able to do what I wanted by replacing eri.xml.

When I try to use ADB to push that same eri.xml file to my Fascinate I get an access denied error. Can anyone tell me how to do this? Any guidance would be appreciated. Since the phone is locked I want my name available on the front in case it is ever lost.

Samsung Fascinate :: Push Button To Unlock

Oct 11, 2010

I think a push-the-button-to-unlock AND a move-the-puzzle-piece-to-unlock-again is redundant. I saw where there is an app that will turn off the screen without locking it but isn't anyone else worried that after a few months of use, pushing the power button all the time is going to wear it out? Is there no app to turn on the screen by simply touching it, or touching one of the 4 icons at the bottom of the phone, and THEN moving the puzzle piece?

Samsung Fascinate :: Video Player Lock - Unlock

Sep 30, 2010

A few of the times that I have played a video using Video Player, I get a lock icon in the top righthand corner. At that point, the buttons do not work. Touching the screen does nothing. I have no idea how to unlock. Each time I've run into this (3 times now), I had to shut down the phone. I must be slow...anyone know how to unlock the video player?

Samsung Galaxy S :: "Too Many Pattern Attempts" To Unlock

Sep 24, 2010

I have forgotten my unlock pattern and was prompted an error message, "Too many pattern attempts"....to unlock, sign in with you Google Account. Here's the issue, I have tried to log in many times and it won't allow me. I have no issues logging into Gmail on my home computer. I changed my password on Gmail and re-logged on my cell and no success. I tried to do a hard reset holding home button, up volume, and pressing the power button until the Samsung logo appears. I also tried to call my phone and access the memo pad so at least I can get to my home screen.no success.Any suggestions? I think my phone has a bug and it probably needs to be sent out..

Samsung Moment : Way To Change Pattern Lock Background?

Sep 25, 2010

I'm using a rooted samsung moment running froyo... if that makes any difference... but ya here's the situation... I have my background in the phone set to what I like... and I like that i see it/them when using the normal swipe unlock. they are not always what you would call appropriate. I already have and use the "LockPattern OnOff" app for situations like work where i don't want anyone getting into my phone, but it still shows my backgrounds there as well.... which could be a bit of an issue depending on who picks it up.. Is there any way anyone knows of to have the background different for the pattern lock screen but not change the normal lock screen?

Samsung Fascinate :: Push Button On Side To Unlock And Lit Up White Screen

Sep 28, 2010

my brand new samsung fascinate just went white. I went to push the button on the side to unlock it, and just lit up white. I went to do a hard reset and it did not solve the problem. When i restart phone, i can hear the phone start up music, and the soft buttons on the front work, but all i see is bright white. I had someone call me, and my phone rang, yet all i saw was a bright screen. When it goes idol to black, it wont turn back on at all.

Samsung Captivate :: Change Locking System From A Sliding Pattern To Number Code?

Aug 10, 2010

New to Android and new to this forum. I've converted from a blackberry and I can't tell you how much I love my Captivate. Well, enough of that :-) I have a few questions. I currently have my display set to time out after one minute. When I'm using the music player is there anyway to prevent the screen from locking. I have having to unlock it to switch tracks.

As a side, is there a way to change the locking system from a sliding pattern to a number code?

Android :: Unlock Pattern Screen Is ON / OFF?

Mar 3, 2010

1) Is there way to find if the Android "unlock pattern screen" is ON/ OFF thru programming? My Aim is to send some messages from my application to a server thru network only when the user had unlocked this password kind of screen (device).

2) Is there any Android/Java class to generically find (query) if certain application window is currently on top like question 1? In other words, any Windows manager class to get some info/enumerate windows that are currently being displayed/being in use.

Sprint HTC Hero :: 2.3.3 And Pattern Unlock ?

Jul 10, 2010

So I flashed 2.3.3 this morning, and tonight I was browsing through the settings and messing with different things. I ended up setting an unlock pattern (I never used it before) and completely forgot about it while browsing through my settings. Now I turn my phone on and blank out what pattern I used. I try what I think it is a few times and nothing.

I read that if you get it wrong 5 times it asks for you Google Login info, yet mine doesnt, it freezes then restarts.

So just a heads up if anyone is running 2.3.3 and using this, it sucks since Im probably gonna have to re flash it since I havent Nandroided yet since.

HTC Hero :: Turning Off Screen Unlock Pattern

Sep 18, 2009

it's easy enough to turn on the unlock pattern security feature and it was fun to give it a try but now I'm just wondering - is there any way to turn it off?? I've tried searching and even in the user guide it says nothing about being able to disable it. If anyone knows how to do this/whether it is possible please let me know - only because I'm finding it kind of annoying now!

HTC Desire :: Slide To Unlock And Lock Pattern

Jun 5, 2010

After some 10 days with my Desire, I am close to getting it 'just right'...

However, I would like to configure the phone to use only the hardware button and the lock pattern in order to use the phone, and bypass the 'slide down' process.

I have tried various permutations and addons but to no avail ...

So to recap:

1 - press upper hardware button
2 - enter lock pattern

HTC Desire :: Pattern / Finger Print Unlock

Jul 13, 2010

Is there any other alternative to this? such as a password/pass code unlock instead? I'm a bit unsure, as the pattern lock seems to me maybe easier to crack if someone were to get their hands on the phone, appears to be no limit on how many attempts you can make also.I know this might be a long shot but is there anything out there such as a finger print unlock?

HTC EVO 4G :: Beautiful Clock On Our Pattern Unlock Screen

Jul 9, 2010

So why can't I use that as a clock widget for my home screen! I mean, it's so nice. The font, the spacing, the size, the position. I'd love that to be my normal home screen clock, so are our free options really limited to either the real estate killing, non-customizable HTC clocks, or the hackney attempts at clock widgets from the market. I know Beautiful Widgets is a pretty popular app to download for this, I guess I'm just looking for a free alternative.
