Everytime we try it says this application has force stopped and doesn't let us in.
    To lock the phone you need a PC(and the same tools used to unlock it: http://mypcdominion.com/Files/androi...arePackage.zip)
    **If you also need the driver http://mypcdominion.com/Files/androi...r3.0.0.007.exe **
    ***This is the quick and dirty method assuming you understand fastboot/command line***


    YOU WILL NEED AN RUU ON YOUR SD CARD BEFORE YOU BEGIN
    1) Reboot the phone into the bootloader
    2) Plug the phone into the PC
    3) Open a command prompt
    4) Run the command "Fastboot oem lock"
    ---your phone is now locked and you HAVE to run an RUU if you have altered the stock system---
    5) Power down the phone
    6) Power the phone on into the bootloader
    7) Press the power button(in the bootloader)
    8) Follow the on screen prompts to flash the RUU
    --Your phone will reboot--
    9) Repeat once from Step 5(RUU MUST BE FLASHED TWICE)
    10) Enjoy your stock phone.

    Did you know: You can upgrade your Rezound to ICS without rooting?

    Fun Rezound Fact: The antennas for the Rezound are in the battery cover.

    Don't forget to backup your flash player install before they remove it from the Android Market.

    Thank you. So just to verify, when you say turn on in step 6 through boot loader you mean the hoot method with the volume button and power button. Also I have a link for the ruu on my computer how do I get that onto my SD card. Do I do that first before locking the phone.

    You are S-off. You need very special instructions.

    It took some looking but I found this:S-on after juopunutbear - xda-developers

    You need to do the following steps to go back to S-ON:
    1. Flash an RUU - DO NOT miss this step out because doing step 2 on the JuopunutBear Hboot will very likely brick your device.
    2. Boot into bootloader, connect via usb to pc and enter the following fastboot command:
    fastboot oem writesecureflag 3

    Unfortunately I would highly suggest letting someone that really really knows what they're doing to do this unless you're perfectly comfortable with the caveat that may brick your phone.

    Thank you so much for the help I wasn't sure where to even look. So question for the time being, until I can find someone to help 1) do you think a factory reset will help with using the personalize settings or do you think I'm screwed BC it is connected some how to the soft ware? 2) how do you "flash" the ruu onto the SD card for future reference and I really am appreciative of all the help!!

    The simplest answer is to load a new ROM on the phone. That should fix most if not all of your issues.

    2a) To check the bootloader, power down the phone, then power on holding power and Vol down. You will be presented with your bootloader screen, it should say *LOCKED* *UNLOCKED* or *RELOCKED* in the top left.

    Check the thread in my sig for instructions on how to root/ROM if you're interested.

    What if you go and try to delete but won't let you but it says disable should I click it to or what should I do
