    Android lock pattern

    I REALLY hate the lock pattern on android. Is there any way I can change it to a numeric lock?

    On the factory presets, no. There are a few lock apps out there however, but I havent used any of them.

    pattern stinks cause you can just change it if you get the pattern wrong three times

    I personally love the lock pattern idea, but I believe the app "Lock 2.0" can give you a numeric screen lock similar to how the iPhone works. $1.99 though.

    In order to do that you need to know the Gmail account AND password. It's not that insecure.

    You could just try it. The limit is 10. Once you get the pattern wrong 10 times, it locks you out for 30 seconds and gives you a "Forgot pattern?" link in which upon successful login of the gmail account, you can create a new pattern.

    I personally like the unlocking device on the phone....as long of course the pattern is pretty easily drawn or swiped....Try a different pattern, it may seem easier another way.

    If this is the pattern, and you are right handed...

    + + +
    + + +
    + + +

    then swipe like this

    _ _ _
    + + _
    + + +

    and choose the option for it not to follow your path. It makes unlocking very easy.

    I love the lock pattern, so much more secure (well potentially) than a 4 digit pin.
