Samsung Moment - Deactivate Screen Lock


I don't mean the lock pattern. I mean the very first screen after you push end to wake up the phone? I hate having to push menu and am wondering if there is a way around this that i'm missing somewhere.

Sony Ericsson Xperia X10 - Slide Lock Deactivate

Does anyone know if the slide lock can be deactivated. Or if you can at least answer a call without using the slide lock. It would be nice if you could just press a button to answeran incoming call, especially when you are driving.

Samsung Galaxy S Lock Screen Stays On

The other day i fell asleep with my vibrant in my pocket woke up 3 hrs later and it was dead. Had no idea why, id only had it less than 24 hrs, and it was almost fully charged b4 i passed out. Well sitting here with the phone on my desk today i got a text, didnt look at the text, and the screen stays on the "sweep screen to unlock" screen fully lit up until i do something with it. I just got a text and its goin on 14 minutes of that screen. Problem fixed as to why it died, but why is it doin that? Is it written into the program, is my phone jacked up, is there a setting? Cuz ive checked all those. My screen is supposed to time out after 1 min which it does if im doing something or have just done somethin and set it down. Thanks in advance for the help and input.

Samsung Captivate - Lock Screen Isn't Really Secure

The other day i had my captivate lying next to my bed, when i realized that i could actually easily see the unlock path on my phone's screen from certain angles. Sure i hadn't cleaned it prior to putting it down, but who does?Perhaps or those of you who use swype this isn't an issue, but i realized that the only time i do an elongated swipe is to unlock the phone. I don't use "swype" for input so the only other drag marks on my screen are from answering calls or flipping through pages of apps and those are much smaller motions, easy to distinguish.

I think the option for a numeric input like a pin code would be much better. Even if the four to 6 digits of the pin were visible on the screen, the order would not be and there would still enough guessing required on-average. Am i too paranoid or anyone else found this also?

Samsung Moment - Is Screen Too Small

I am one of the lurkers who is considering getting a moment over the evo and epic because of costs. However, i'm worried i'm going to hate the smaller screen. It is still a good screen, but 3. 2 inches or whatever it is is pretty small for a smartphone. I have the htc touch pro2 right now, and it's ok, thank god for htc and touchflow. Anyway it's time to get android in october.

I wouldn't even consider the intercept because it's rev. 0. So, is the screen too small? How often do the data lock ups happen? I've been to 2 or 3 different sprint stores and neither moment worked when i went to play with it, after a reboot, data worked. So i'm assuming that was the issue on those phones. Is an android 2. 2 custom rom going be done for this phone?I see the wifi tether is a go so that is good. Has anyone purchased and extra battery and charger? As in a charger that you just snap the battery into while you use the other one in the phone? Is there one that you recommend? Is the battery life really that bad?

Samsung Moment - Evo Vs Moment / Out Of Range Service Beeps

I am eligible to upgrade, but i want to get some opinions before i decide. I will not purchase or pre-order the evo either before it has a few weeks to settle in and also monitoring others experiences. My concern is that some of my gripes with the moment my not be corrected or addressed with htc either.

- Anyone here have htc experience as far as durability and dependability vs samsung moment. Physically and structurally to me, the moment has been great, want the same from evo/htc

- Gps, my moment sucks, what experiences have others had with comparable htc phones vs say blackberry which works wonderfully for us

- Out of range service beeps, these on htc phones or just the moment

- Cdma lockups, on my moment they are more recurring now with 2. 1 than before. Is there any reports of this with the htc phones

Hate not having a keyboard (evo), but these things actually are distractive enough for me to consider a replacement.

Tasker And Lock Screen

Has anyone tried to detect hardware events (e.g. Camera button press) in tasker while the lock pattern screen is active? The lock screen seems to prevent events from reaching tasker.

One of the things that has always bothered me about android is that "silent mode" doesn't affect alarm or media volume. I don't want any alarms going off in a movie or church setting. I was hoping i could use tasker to detect the camera button press while the lock screen was on to turn silent mode on and also remember the volume setting before forcing those additional volumes to 0. Then pressing it again could restore volume settings. I'm able to create the task and it's working but i can't tie it to the hardware button while the lock screen is active.

Motorola Droid X - Ice On Lock Screen

I did a factory reset and prior to that i had the ability to add 2 "ice" (in case of ermergency contact) to my phone that will allow users to call pre programed numbers. This icon was to the right of the existing emergency call icon on the lock menu. Im pretty sure i did not download an app to get this but now its gone and all i have is the emergency manual dial option. Does anyone know where i can find this setting?

Htc Desire - Defrost Screen Lock

I've recently rooted and flashed the defrost froyo rom using lekky's guide, had a few problems at first, but nothing that wasn't sorted by wiping data/cache and re-flashing. Now, i have one slight, albeit very annoying niggle, in that you can now deactivate the screen lock by pressing the trackball twice, which i have managed to do a few times in my pocket by accident now i don't want to use a pattern lock, so is there anyway other way i can stop the trackpad unlocking the screen, a setting i've missed perhaps?

Alarm Time No Longer Shows On Lock Screen

So i installed the avg app for a little while. Didn't like it, so i uninstalled it. It adds text to your lock screen saying who the device belongs too. It covers up where it used to display the next alarm time. Uninstall the app the text just says there. Re-install the app, and tell it to stop displaying the lock screen message, and it totally takes away the alarm icon. So when you uninstall it again, it does not even show the alarm icon. How can i fix this?

Motorola Droid X - Owner Info On Lock Screen

I am looking for an app that will put contact info on the lock screen. I have looked at posts that refer to "contact owner" as very buggy, and others that suggest editing the lock wallpaper image.

Htc Desire - Lock Screen Doesn't Appear

Have owned my desire for a good while now and because i am branded to orange uk i only got the froyo update on fri 1st oct after a lot of flaffing from orange. All seemed ok but the other night the phone developed an unusual quirk. Normally to open the device you press the power button then drag the bar down on the lock screen to open to the home screens.
Suddenly, the lock screen doesn't appear, just power button straight to home screen. Not good for pockets.

Have tried several alternatives from the market and they seemed to work but i didn't like the way that some of them were able to unlock the phone by pressing just the home key(kind of defeating the purpose of a lock screen really)

Rang orange and after some head scratching the guy told me to basically debrand the phone and revert to generic 2. 1 from htc, a process which only the other day called for the reaction "this may effect your warrany"while i was messsing with all this, the default lock screen has started to work again. But i don't trust it to stay working!

Htc Desire - Unable To Lock Screen / Setting For It

I'm not able to lock the screen with the power button anymore, really annoying! After a reset it works again, iż½ve done this twice and after a while the lock screen cease to work. I have no homescreen replacement apps installed. After i restored my applications with mybackup it worked, but as soon as i started adding shortcuts to apps and contacts on the homescreen i wasnż½t able to lock the screen anymore. I hadnż½t even touched any settings.

Does anyone have a solution to this problem? Is there a setting for the lock screen function? I really like this phone but this problem is really annoying. I like to have the screen sleep in at least 1 minute and i donż½t want to wait a minute to put the phone in my pocket.

Wanted Feature Lock Screen Grace Period

Certain times i use my g1 a lot in a short period of time but keep turning the screen on and off. Examples: using a shopping list application at the store, using pandora at work (i turn on the screen to see the song names. )I use the screen lock feature that requires a pattern to unlock the screen. In those cases i'm unlocking the screen every couple of minutes, over and over. It's a chore.

I think it'd be nice if there were a setting to give yourself a grace period. Once unlocked, the phone remains unlocked until the specified time has passed. Say, one hour. During that hour you would only need to enter the unlock code the first time. After that you simply press the menu key to open the phone. The interval of the grace period could be configurable: 10, 30, 60 minutes, or 0 to act like it does now.

I created a suggestion in the google product ideas. I don't know if it's the best place to suggest the idea to google, but it's what i found. If you like the idea, give it your vote. You simply log in with your google account. There's no way to link directly to my suggestion, so i'll link to a search instead. It's the only result right now.

Motorola Cliq/motoblur - Remove / Shrink Size Of Time Appears On Screen When It In Lock Mode

Is there anyway to remove and/or shrink the size of the time that appears on the screen when it is in lock mode? I hate how big it is. It blocks out too much of the background picture. And i don't see much of a point to it when the time is also in the top right corner when you view the screen in locked mode. I would prefer it to be smaller if possible.
