    Hi,

    I've finally come into the 21st century by buying an Sumsung Galaxy Apollo GT-I5800 (running Android 2.1). Does anyone know of an app that will allow you to enter a 4 digit pin to unlock it instead of having to swipe it to awaken after a screen timeout? I'm not a big fan of the pattern lock. It seems such a simple app/function to have on the phone & can't believe it's not on there & it's getting mega frustration.:(

    I've downloaded an app (Privacy Guard) that allows you enter a pin to access specific apps on the phone but not give you access to the phone itself out of sleep/timeout mode.

    Please help. I've an application called market but can't seem to find a free app to provide such a simple function.

    thanks
    A

    Correct me if I'm wrong but, if you go into location & security, and then click "Set Unlock Screen" You should have an option for pin code, pattern, or password. Or is this just me since I installed a froyo ROM??

    There's no option for 'Set Unlock Screen' under the 'location & security' menu. There's 'set unlock patterm.'

    I'm not sure how to install Froyo (Android 2.2). I'm not sure if I will loose all my contacts etc etc if I do.

    Thanks
