    I don't know if this has been posted before, but on my first search - I didn't see it.

    Instead of SLIDING across to unlock the phone... you can use one finger to hold the green icon, then you'll notice a little green icon on the other side of the screen (where the sound off icon usually is, it disappears when you hold the unlock icon). Then just tap that one too and it unlocks.

    That doesn't work, the little green icon is the point where you have to slide the lock to for the phone to unlock.

    It kinda works. Hold the lock with one finger..without lifting it, press and hold the green dot....then lift the finger on the lock.

    It does work that way but it's still easier to just swipe it.

    is this the "Unnecessarily Difficult Tips and Tricks" thread?

    I guess this would be helpful if your left hand was in a cast. :)

    There is a setting where you can disable the swipe to unlock the phone altogether. just pressing the top button once and the phone comes on.
    Settings/security settings and uncheck the screen lock. when the phone times out all you have to do is press the button at the top of the phone.

    double tap the hard home button and that will also bring you to the swipe screen.

    i got the green dot to open up for me.

    with the swipe to unlock feature enabled just a single tap of either the hard home key or the unlock key will bring up the swipe screen.

    with the swipe to unlock screen disabled, a single touch of either unlock or hard home button will turn on the screen.

    no other buttons will bring up the screen in either mode

    MOTO has the worst and most difficult unlock screen ever invented. Slow, hard to use and it lags. But I wouldn't expect anything else. On the incredible you can hit the power key, menu key, unlocked.

    The onscreen lock isnt Moto...its vanilla Android.....:rolleyes:

    Unless Motorola had its own lock screen on the Droid. They use the exact same unlock. If u gonna hate, hate with correct info....

    This just worked on my Droid X flashed to Milestone (.621 to .604). Except no green dot or any dot. I press & hold the left unlock, press where the right button should be (it disappears) & then wait 2 seconds & screen is unlocked. Thanks Op.
