There's an app on the market called "No Lock". It should do what you want. I can't say if its any good as I haven't tried it.

No one has really read you post. You want to get rid of the lock screen all together, they are describing how to get rid of a password to unlock the screen. The no lock software has bugs and does not work well from what other poster have said.

My SGSII doesn't show the lock screen even if I get a call or text. Maybe it's different depending on firmware. I'm running 2.3.4. Also, I've noticed that with the lock on or off, either way the screen turns on when a text is received but BOTH cases, the screen turns off within 5 seconds, so it shouldn't cause toooo much trouble in your pocket.

On my phone it doesn't cause many glitches. It did cause a few problems on my Atrix on startup though, but all I had to do was lock and unlock again.

No Lock is fine for me.

I stopped screen waking on SMS receipt by freezing stock messaging app and using Handcent SMS instead (did that because stock messaging didn't work with BLN, but now does anyways).
