    Maybe there is a bug in the pattern code. Try switching to pin and then see if it will let you turn that off.

    I tried switching to the password, and to pin number unlock methods. That is no problem. Those are the only choices I can go back and forth to. It seems like now that I have put the phone to a higher level of security it wont let me go back to anything less than pattern, pin, or password.

    I have this problem too. Were you able to resolve?

    In my settings>security window, under the "select screen lock" option, I have "none, slide face unlock and pattern" all grayed out with the phrase "disabled due to device encryption" printed under each. The only option I can tinker with is PIN and Password.

    I still have not resolved this issue. Mine is the exact same as yours. I am kinda glad I am not the only one trying to figure this out.

    It says "disabled due to encryption," did not realize you guys were getting that message. I know on the galaxy nexus we have the option to encrypt the device, you guys didn't do that did you? Not sure how to reverse it but it gives us somewhere to start looking if that's the case.

    I know that I didn't choose to encrypt mine. Not sure how to disabled that if it is.

    Yeah I'm not sure either. But if you didn't do it then that's probably not the case. Unless you think it could happen by mistake which is not likely since I believe it is a timely process.

    I may have encrypted mine on accident

    I am using my phone for office email through an outlook exchange server as well as gmail and basic apps. Could the set up of one of these have caused me to encrypt my phone? Other co-workers using the same phone and the same email setup do not have their phones encrypted. If it happened accidentally I would like to change it back to the un-encrypted setting assuming it doesn't cause too much headache for me to change. I have no idea how to change it back BTW.

    Had the same issue with the pattern lock. When I clicked on the pattern lock to try to turn it off, all I got was the pattern screen. I entered the pattern and it opened up was able to take the lock off.

    because of an error or the use of an unknown person, a certificate from the menu credentials installed.
    then swipe menu, face and other choise become gray
