1. You want that $100.00 in your pocket or an Amazon Fire TV don't you? Well here's the deal. With our new updated look we are in desperate need of an updated logo. The 'old' one has certainly served us well, but it's time. Find all the details here: bit.ly/1q0k6Wa

    I have an unlock pattern set on my Droid, but I think I want to try it without the pattern for a while. However, it won't let me un-check "require pattern" in the settings! HALP!

    Do you have a corporate exchange account setup for e-mail on it? I know they can set it so that phones require a lock code.

    No, I'm a self-employed stay-home mom. This is my personal phone. I set up the unlock code a few weeks ago to try it out, and now I want to turn it off at least for now.

    That is odd. Try downloading the lock pattern on/off widget from curvfish. If you have mylock installed try resetting it by clicking on/off twice.

    I see this posting is from March...but I had the same problem on my Incredible, (unable to "Un-Check" the Require Pattern box). *I was able to simply turn the phone OFF. Upon rebooting the phone, the Pattern Security was no longer in effect. Perhaps it resets itself and must be re-applied each time you turn your phone on. Worked for me! Good luck.

    DroidX had this problem, I disabled the pattern after setting it, and it wouldn't go away. I downloaded the suggested app, and my problems are gone.
