    New here so i apologize if this has been answered before but is there a way to bypass the swipe motion to unlock the phone? Like maybe an app. or something of the sort.

    I find it very inefficient to have to press the unlock button on the top right of the handset and ALSO have to swipe to unlock, and to slide open the phone and have to swipe to unlock. I'm already pushing the unlock button or sliding my keyboard out what's the point of having another measure of security lol

    there is a widget that will do this.can't remember what it is called but someone will chime in.the only downfall to it for me was when it was activated any button would wake up the phone.i kept pressing the volume key or the camera key when holstering and it would turn on.

    Yes it's called keyguard disabler and the fact that it opens by the volume and camera buttons is a pretty big downfall lol

    Thanks for the suggestions but it has the same problem as Keyguard Disabler. It unlocks when the volume or camera buttons are pressed

    There's a free app called Lock Suppress that I just installed. It disables the slide to unlock screen. It does have the fault of the volume and camera buttons being able to wake up the phone, but if you are careful, it should not be a problem.
