Default Galaxy S3, Bluetooth, and PIN Lock

Hi,
I own a SamSung Galaxy S3 Model SGH-1747M running 4.1.1 (not rooted). We encountered a major problem with the unit. We could not make outgoing Bluetooth calls from our phones to our handsfree units. The units were a Blueant S3 and a Motorola T505. The reason was that S Voice could not start up with the phone locked with a PIN. A PIN was
critical on our phones as we use them for business and we have many
documents and contacts that we don't want easily accessible. After
reading countless forums and spending hours searching for an answer
(over 14), I am happy to report that a solution has been found.

By using Tasker and Secure Settings:
Profile->Bluetooth Connected
Task->PlugIn->Secure Settings->Password/Pin->Disabled
I then added an Exit Task
Task->Plugin0>Secure Settings->Password/Pin->Enabled (Set to my old
PIN number)

I have set this up for both of my BlueTooth units and it works like a
hot damn! I just wish someone would have posted this before I had
spent so much time searching for a solution. Hopefully this helps
someone!

Greg

Tasker is an application available within Play Store. A profile exists within Tasker.
