    I am very new to Droid.

    When you first activate your Droid by pushing the button on the top, it gives you that slider to unlock the screen near the bottom. THEN, you have to enter your pattern unlock.

    Can you eliminate the initial slide to unlock and just have it wake up and present the pattern to unlock?

    It's not a BIG deal but it would be nice.

    Thanks!

    I use MyLock Version 1.4c, not on the market anymore for free. I have a Droid 1 and it works great to eliminate the slide. I don't have a password or pattern, from a sleeping phone I press the pwr button and phone is alive and ready to use. I know you can download a free version of Version 1.4b on their web page. Google MyLock, go to the developers webpage and tiptoe through to their products page where the first item is 1.4b.

    I don't know what happened to 1.4c, but I have been using a version of MyLock since January. For $0.99 they have the final pre-FROYO version, but I'm too cheap and what I have works.

    A friend has a Droid 2 and it was less than 100% for him, doesn't hurt to give it a try.

    This is kind of annoying but I got used to it. On my droid all I had to do was press the power button and draw my pattern.

    This doesn't stop you from using a pattern unlock underneath the slide unlock does it?

    Big,

    Be sure to note that No Lock also has widget in the event that you want to be able to quickly turn the feature on and off.

    Just tried this and it eliminates my Pattern unlock as well. The only thing I want to eliminate is the initial slide to unlock step.

    "No Lock" is cool but unfortunately it disables the pattern lock or code entry screen as well. I was hoping to be able to just disable to initial slide lock.

    Current Phone Model:
    Note 3, straight stock
    At least one of the custom roms (Ultimate Droid 1.0.0 and I think maybe ShadowRom) have a feature in Settings that let you choose another button to unlock the phone. It's a "rom feature" rather than an apk, and to my knowledge doesn't interfere with the pattern lock.

    This is on and slightly off topic....I don't know how to get off the slide lock when I wake it up, but I find it annoying when someone calls and you have to slide the unlock and then either accept or decline the call. I downloaded Easy Answer that someone suggested here and when you get a call, it skips the slide unlock and just says answer or decline...so that's a way around the slide for answering a call, but not for just waking it up and using it. It's cool tho....By the time I used to slide..and it always took a few times if you are using one hand....I missed a few calls.
