    From day one if the lock screen was up all I had to do is slide to open. Now all of a sudden, it has a number pad and I need to apply my PIN. If I go to settings, system settings, security & screen lock, under screen lock it says PIN, but when I tap it, it ask to confirm PIN. It looks like my only other options are pattern or password.

    None, slide and face unlock have been greyed-out and "disabled by admin, encryption policy or credential storage". Not sure how any of those happened.

    I'm experiencing the same thing. Wasn't like that until today. Frustrating because I had mine set to "none" and now I don't have that option.

    Thanks, I never would have figured that out on my own. Also, great to have FoxFi back as a hotspot.

    Is there a default pin? I've never set one and all of a sudden I have a lock screen and can't get past it. Thanks.

    Never mind. It was my default Verizon pin.
