you can't eliminate the lock screen, goes back to voyager days & before.
in location/security, you can set the time before the lock engages, i choose 2 min in case i set the phone down & someone picks it up & tries to use it.
i do have a 4 digit code that must be entered, after the swype to use or answer the phone.
I don't have it password protected, so I don't have to unlock it. but every time the phone times out, the screen comes up with the lock on it and I have to slide it across before I can do anything on my phone. I've had this phone for less than a day, and it's driving me crazy already.
Oh, I thought you meant the security...as earlier mentioned, you can change the length of time before it engages but there is no way to disable it. There are apps that allow you to work around it but nothing to completely get rid of it...as far as I know
Yep, that's the way it works .. Once it times out, you must Swipe to Unlock ... you'll likely get used to it ... and as Bear mentioned, you can change the time out length - but of course the screen will be live during the time of inactivity - probably not a good thing for battery life.
