You mean that your home screen (or the home screen and the other four screens) are locked? Or that the screen that appears when you turn on your phone or wake it from sleep is locked?

Screen lock normally refers to the latter -- but you can't change the appearance of that screen except between the pattern, password, or pin, so I'm unsure what you're talking about.

Have you tried turning the phone off and pulling the battery?

And I hesitate to ask this, but did you buy the phone from a store? If you purchased a stolen phone, there is software available that allows the owner to lock the phone.

I don't have much to add to what I wrote above.

In settings, the only setting for screen lock relates to what happens on the lock screen -- no lock, pattern, PIN, or password. So which of those do you see on the lock screen?

You say you can't move or delete icons or change/add shortcuts. Can you access apps? access settings? make phone calls? do anything?

Where did you buy your Intercept, and how long ago?

My rooted dinc is doing the same thing. Cyanogenmod 7. Long press on apps will bring up "Screen Locked" in the upper left corner. Phone is not stolen. Everything else works. I can't find a setting for it. Thanks in advance for any help.

Confused

Locked Thrive, Samsung Stratosphere and Samsung Infuse. I was hacked after the 'CARRIER IQ' was given to me by HTC and Verizon. Hackers went after every single peice of equipment that had radio waves/ So far they've been at me for 3 months. At least I have their IP's. Now it's just incredibly incredibly annoying. I waste 3/4 of my time fixing the messes they make. Here's another one.

I have the exact same problem. I have a samsung and when I long click on apps to uninstall or move to my home screens a message that says screen locked appears in the top left corner of the screen.

I've deleted my most recent apps. I've gone through every setting available (I have Go Launcher EX). Nothing works.

Wrong forum, but we can still assist. I haven't used Go Launcher in quite some time, but if I recall correctly there's an option to lock the screen elements in place. You may need to dig around in the settings to find it. Another possible solution would be to clear the data for Go Launcher. That will have the effect of resetting it to the default settings.

Cool

Homescreen menu. You might have to scroll back and forth or up and down, but it's the screen lock icon. You should be able just to tap it to unlock.

Default just uninstall and reinstall

My mom's HTC sensation 4g has go launcher ex. It recently received a screen locked sign every time she tried to move an icon. I went to Google play and uninstall and then reinstalled the application. Works fine now.

also experienced the same problem but I was able to unlock the home screen. Go to your app drawer, then open the "More" tab and look for "Unlock Screen".

Default solution ----screen locked

for all those who are haggling with the screen locked problem wherein you are unable to edit screen icon positions or change wallpapers, the solution is simple.

the setting is from the go launcher app.

from the home screen press the menu options soft key / button and you will get the go launcher menu.
click on the 'more' tab where you'll find the option 'unlock screen'. click on it and problem solved.

happy androiding.
