    every time the screen blanks after timeout it locks the phone - this is inconvenient because every time I pick the phone up to use I have to unlock it. is there any way to stop this - I would prefer it to never lock unless I use the power/lock button bkkguy

    Settings -> Sound and Display -> Screen timeout

    just change the time to like 30 minutes. Should be long enough.

    I have it sitting on my desk all day - 30 minutes is not the issue, I don't need to change the screen timeout, I just don't want it to lock when it does I installed NoLock and yes it does not lock when the screen times out so great, but unfortunately when I press the lock/power button is does not lock either - still Nolock is a great improvement bkkguy

    Logically speaking, you dun need a lock screen at all for capacitive screen. Cause nothing is going to be able to trigger the screen other than your finger

    yes, but when I am out and about I would prefer the lock screen to be active - it is the most useful screen to quickly check time and missed calls and requires an unlock pattern

    I'm having the same issue on my Galaxy S II.
    I flashed it today with the latest firmware from Samfirmware, but nothing changed.
    In my HTC Desire, even being forced by Exchange security policies to enter a PIN to unlock the device, I can specify a timeout for this PIN to be entered (up to 15 minutes).

    In the Galaxy, such menu item is not available :eek:, as it is really really annoying :mad:

    I've tryed some "no-lock" applications from the markets, but they are not working at all.

    To be precise, I want to keep the PIN lock, but it simply cannot force me to enter the PIN every time the screen goes off.

    Has anyone any suggestion?
    Thanks
