Unhappy Samsung Galaxy S--disabling screen lock

I enabled the dot pattern screen lock and it's driving me crazy. I went back to Settings->Location & Security and tapped the Change/disable screen lock but it doesn't appear to give me the option to disable the lock.

How do I completely disable the screen lock?

ok, I just had the same problem with my samsung s2 (Galaxy II). I was going in and out of programs to see how/ what they are.

I discovered how to disable the screen lock by re-entering - settings, security, enter the screen lock and enter another code, then hit next, you will then be able to click "NONE". This will disable the screen lock.

Good Luck.
