    Is there a way to turn off the lock screen? I don't want to have to enter a code to answer my phone. I had to turn it on to install a certain program I wanted...a hem.... Anyway, now I just want to turn it off. Help!

    Just a guess here but go to settings - security either screen lock or lock screen options. If the first option is there "none" should be at the bottom

    It would be at the bottom, however, if you don't see it on your phone go to the lock screen option you are using and you should be able to disable it. If you are using a PIN you may need to enter it to stop it. Or just leave it blank.

    Ok, I had to go into "device admin" and turn something off/on then the NONE option was available. What a pain! Thanks for your help!

    The reason why this happened with yoru *aheam* other program you wanted was because of security. In order for that other program to work, you had to download and install a security certificate so you knew it could be trusted from that company. A loop whole to get that work was the agreement you needed the extra security of the lock screen. You might notice that even when you turn off the lock screen, and run the other program, it will make you re-add on the lock screen again! Annoying I guess, but I just used the drawing pattern instead of numbers. Unlocks it quickly, and it's still a good idea to have incase you lose the phone or someone steals it! :/

    I too have the same issue. The "none"is grayed out. The "aheam" app you speak of wouldn't be foxfi would it? And has the problem been solved yet?
    HELP!!

    I'm running FoxFi on a Galaxy S3 with no lock screen so it must, (may), be something else.

    Nope. It's FoxFi. I get the same thing on my Bionic. From the Play Store description:

    *Some Jelly Bean phones has locked-down the WiFi hotspot feature, because of that FoxFi will ask you to install a user certificate on those phones. The side effect is that Android system will require you to set a screen lock first (and only allows Pattern, PIN or Password) when you install any user certificates. We recommend
    a. Use a Pattern lock for simplicity. The Motorola PIN lock screen could confuse you.
    b. This is the only way FoxFi can enable WiFi mode when you don't have a tether plan. Use USB mode if you really don' t want the lock screen.
    c. To undo the screen lock you have to remove the FoxFi certificate first (simply select "clear credentials" in security settings).

    Jadesaber2,
    Wow, that certainly makes sense! I do remember FoxFi showing that message before allowing me to use the app so apparently that is what happened. I assume that will happen when ever the app is used. I use FoxFi when I am not able to connect to WiFi with my ipad2 or lap top to provide a hot spot. Actually, it probably is not a bad idea to use a lock screen for security, it is just that I prefer to have the option. Thanks, you have been very helpful Jadesaber2!!

    You CAN get rid of the screenlock password and reset it back to "slide!" This worked for me...

    Set a PATTERN lock. Try entering an INCORRECT pattern 5-10 times. It will then show screen saying it will lock for 30 seconds. There will also be a "Forgot Pattern" option above it that you can click on. Click on "Forgot Pattern." There will then be a request for you to enter your Gmail address and password. Enter them and VOILÁ...look at settings and screenlock is reset to slide:)

    Some phone models may support the following way to remove the lock
    screen while keeping the certificate: set a pattern lock and try to
    unlock the phone with a "bad pattern" for 5-10 times, it will show you
    an error message, close the message and on the lock screen you should
    see a "Forgot Pattern?" link somewhere. Select it and enter your
    gmail/password. After these steps the screen lock will be removed

    If that does not work for your phone, then there is no way to avoid the
    screen lock but you can use a Pattern lock instead of PIN lock.
