Disable Screen Lock PasswordSupport

    I hate entering a password everytime I need to use my phone. I'm told I can disable the screen lock but I don't know how. I want the screen lock to still disable the screen (I'm the worst purse-dialer) but I want to remove the password and just "swipe" the lock open.

    Can someone tell me if this is possible? I've searched the owner's manual and forums with no luck.

    Press menu.
    Press settings.
    Press Location and Security.
    Press Change Screen Lock.
    Enter your password.
    Choose None.
    Enjoy!

    I appreciate your reply, however I have already tried that with no luck. The "None" is "greyed out" so I am unable to select it. Any suggestions?:confused:

    I just noticed text below the greyed-out "None" says, "Disabled by remote phone administrator" any idea what that means or how to fix it?

    Never mind...problem solved. I had to remove my corporate email account, them remove the password, then add the email account again.

    Consider yourself lucky. When I did that, I was forced to add the password back.
