    I just used No Lock on my old phone, but now Samsung's modifications seem to have made that ineffective. I also used the widget in extended controls, to no avail. any other options?

    well nevermind. I figured out the problem. turns out I shouldn't have had Extended Controls and No Lock installed at the same time, as they confuse each other.

    speaking of extended controls, does anyone know an app/widget I can download that puts widget style controls directly in the notification bar? EC just puts a shortcut to the widget, not as smooth as I was hoping. Looking for something like the regular Galaxy S phones have.

    Why would you want to disable the lock screen...? o_O Your phone would be displaying constantly thus draining battery right?

    No, screen lock is just the screen you go to when you turn on the screen with the power button. You can still have the screen turn off after a certain time, and anyway it will turn off if you hit the power button. By disabling the screen lock, you can go straight to the home screen, or running app or whatever. Especially useful in the car.

    While we're on the subject, everyone check out extended controls, its pretty nice. A customizable replacement for the stock controls widget thatyou can set a shortcut to in the notification menu. I wish the controls themselves could be set there though. Anyone know a widget that does that?

    I agree with disabling the lock screen. I don't like having to hit the button to wake the phone up and then having to also swipe to unlock the phone.

    Ok, I'm good now... I used the "no lock" app and no more drama. Is stupid you have to run an app instead of it just being a setting? Sure! But what can I say, that's the new sidekick people. Desgraciada.
