    I couldn't find an answer from search...

    Can I remove the lock screen function from my phone? I don't want my phone to have a screen lock. Just want to hit the power button (or any button) and have it turn on to whatever app was last open.

    I'm currently rooted with Fresh and Gumbo if it matters.

    I'm not sure if you can disable the lock screen function. I hated it for about the first 30 minutes when I first got my hero (Side note: I'm not rooted) and used to think it was annoying, but you get over it. It only takes a good half second once you get onto it to unlock it. Don't have to worry about 10,000 apps running up accidently either.

    Menu - settings - security

    Make sure the first box is empty.

    First option box I have on that menu is "require pattern." Am I looking at the wrong place?

    I don't want a lock screen at all where I have to slide the screen down to use the phone.

    Just hitting the MENU button twice will unlock your phone, no swiping needed. It's only one more button press and will accomplish what you're asking. Just make sure you don't have the security pattern on.

    I did not know this, this proves to be quite useful.
    Thanks.

    As for disabling it, I'm pretty sure there is no way.

    You can remove it, the problem is the shortcut keys of menu phone will have your phone butt dialing. I found that out in the first hour I had it when it called someone 5 times from my hip pouch. So I enabled the lockout to prevent that. The sheer stupidity of a touch screen that has a quick boot like that makes no sense.

    This will disable the pattern for the lock screen. As mentioned above, you can just hit menu twice to get passes the slide down lock screen.

    I couldn't figure out how to do the lockscreen removal on the "share how you use your screens" thread so I paid $1.50 for keyguard disabler. LOVE it!

    When the phone turns on for what ever reason, You only need to hit the MENU button once to unlock it.

    I am the reverse I love my screen lock and sometimes it stops working and the only way to get it back is to restart my Hero. Am I hitting some wrong button or something?

    There is an app on the market called No Lock Screen. It's actually just a toggle style widget in the style of Power Control, and it did exactly what it claims to do, at least on my Nexus S.

    Yeah, but some of us are not patient and adaptable like you.
    I hate slide-to-unlock first day on android and I hate it now even more. :mad:
    I just haven't time to cudlle with my phone when I need to do something quickly, like in a split of a second. Sometimes I think of doing something, and at the time I slide damn screen, and repeat it if I fail first time (because I'm in a hurry) - tought is just gone...

    I recomend to everyone: use ap called: Mylock or No lock.
    Go to Market and You'll find it.

    @ chuhsi. yes you can remove the lock screen. Try this..
    Applications > Settings > Location and Security > Select Device Administrator
    Remove the Lock Screen
    Then uninstall it to Application Management
