    got the app called finger scan lite and it worked great all day long. decided i liked it and wanted to upgrade to it for kicks.

    the pro version now has me locked out of my phone....

    its stuck on the green "please scan your fingerprint" screen. when you hold your finger on the screen, it vibrates x amount of times like its supposed to but it goes to a white button in the center of the screen and wont let me do anything. i tried holding the home button and it will only get me to messaging. anything i do, it keeps going to the white button.

    tried pulling the battery and powering down, same results.

    im screwed and need some help fast.




    thanx!

    It will get rid of everything you have done on your phone. You will have to reactivate it with Verizon. It will be like you just got it in the mail. SD Card data should still be available. I saw someone else get locked out of the phone with a app and this fixed it. Good Luck!!

    Are you holding your finger down for at least 3 seconds?
    Just found out about an app called "finger scanner life", and you have to hold three seconds with it.

    i had that once before and ran into the same problem. i ended up removing it completely. when you hold the home button do you get a option asking you to choose what to do...home screen or the thumb program and to choose one as a default?

    I am not sure if this is any help but I read a thread a while back where the lockscreen messed up and a Guy couldn't get into his phone. He was able to call the phone then slide to answer, then go into the settings and disable the lock screen. Is this an option?

    That should work, I had to fix issues like this when I was a tech for VZW and that usually worked. Just call from your house phone and stay on a call with it while you go into settings and remove the app. If not, hard reset.

    outstanding suggestion! do like he said but remain on the call and hit the back icon or the menu button to go into your phones main settings and uninstall that app. dont know why i didnt think of that when this happened to me.
