That's interesting. I have an HTC Desire Z and I have a 4th option that is none. Not sure of your particular phone. Perhaps you can check the field where you set the delay before it locks. There might be an option there that turns it off.
I had this same problem on my GTab2 7.0 running stock ICS. Super frustrating. I finally realized it was being caused by my having an Exchange account for my employer's email that was enforcing a policy of not removing the lock screen security. This was even though I didn't have a password and didn't need one when I set it up. I uninstalled Touchdown (my Exchange account) and the "none" option reappeared. After removing the lock screen security, I reinstalled Touchdown and now everything works fine again without a lock screen pin.
go into settings and click on screen lock. once there, go to 1 that says pin. when u click on it, it will promptyou for a pin that was originally entered. enter it, the screen will give u options. such as just swipe to unlock.
I had this same problem on my SG3. Just go into settings. Scroll down to Screen lock tab, its just above the tab that says security. Click on it. Then scroll to tab that says PIN. Click on it. It will ask for a pin that was originally entered, to use the lock with pin function. After you enter the pin number, it will give you several options to select from for security. Just select the SWIPE option, if you do not wa.t to have to enter any pins or patterns. With SWIPE, you simply swipe the opening screen with your finger and it will open to your home screen.
