    Why didn't they mention that you can physically see the path of the pattern lock? LOL. I'm pretty sure there was a thread on this forum where someone's young child figured out the lock pattern.

    You can disable the display of the path in the security options.

    I know. But wasn't what I was referring to. Can you disable the trail your finger makes sliding across the screen? :icon_ devil: as in a greasy finger track.....

    Who actually turns that on anyway ... I am annoyed enough with the "Slide to Unlock" feature. I would never turn on the pattern feature too.

    Check this app out if you werent already aware of it, and bypass the lock screen with a touch of any button the keyboard, when you open the keyboard, and when you hit the power button.

    Downloads - mylockforandroid - Project Hosting on Google Code

    Do you not use your phone after unlocking? You're going to put MORE greasy tracks on it within seconds of use.

    I don't even use pattern lock. There's been numerous people that have complained about the 'tracks' being left.
    I don't see a need for the pattern lock at all... keep your phone with you. Real simple :)

    LockBot allows you to put an actual password in rather than a pattern. Harder to figure out IMO

    Definitely the way I would go if I was concerned about 'locking' my phone.
