    Can you have any other lock screens with 2.0.1 then the regular slide to unlock? (like pattern lock) I am getting my Droid tomorrow, and wanted to know if I could somehow out a lock on my phone. Thanks.

    Im 23 years old and go to MIT.
     
  5. if you go to MIT then im sure youll be able to find what youre looking for once you actually have the phone in your hands instead of wasting time on here

    And? That somehow makes you above Santa? Surely a 23 year old MIT student doesn't need a silly forum to find out if the droid can do pattern lock (especially since the handy search button could have answered the question)! Why don't you just pull the code and check it out? :p

    All of that to say "lighten up a bit ... its the holiday season" :).

    I'm sorry that even bright people can't ask questions on here.

    The answer to your original question was given in the first response by Nicks88. You can set a pattern unlock for your droid. It's an option that you set under security.

    it would be pretty cool if you could have other looks for the slide lock though.

    MIT, you need to chill. You said that you are getting your DROID tomorrow, and that is Christmas day.
    If you are so smart, you would know that there is no vocal intonation online and things can be taken out of context, like you did.

    And just because you go to MIT doesn't make you smarter than the rest of us - people "donate" and get in to colleges they don't belong every day.

    Jesus why is everyone so temper temper here?

    Yes you can use the pattern lock, I don't personally because I don't want to accidentally make an emergency call.

    ...no you cannot revert to the 2.0 wheel unlock, which saddens me, even thought the new slider works better, I sometimes wish to use the wheel...it was nifty.

    Whoa. Of all the reasons you could have chosen... being rich? If they're rich they don't need college really, what do you care they get in for free? Not to mention its a rare occurrence for colleges that aren't the top 3...

    There are all sorts of crazy reasons. Geography. You're the one student from Wyoming applying to our school this year? Congratulations you're in!

    Being Hawaiian or Mexican or even white? Grats we have slots for you, cause we have too many kids from the eastern continent to accept poor tim...

    Anyways this guy isn't even in undergrad, so its likely he's taking some courses in a specialized subject. Completely different thing. Anything from super hardworking to noone applying to the japanese art program that year. So yeah you're right its not the be all but we don't know anything about the guy so no need to rip in to him.

    I don't even remember who I'm replying to... just sayin.'

    I love how the holiday season brings out the best in everyone
     
  18. I'm banking on he's just some 15 year old kid who said he's 23 going to MIT, glad jmccarthy14 is defending something he doesn't even know about.

    Your reasons are correct too - none of these make him smart either :)

    You're right. I just took the understaffed side.

    In general, the smahties don't get in the habit of having to inform everyone around them they're smart. So yeah, this guy is prob insecure or just put off by the replies he got here. Which may be understandable, as is people scoffing at it.

    Edit for boring

    Maybe he is designing an App to have multiple slide lock options on the phone, I mean...
    He is in MIT and all...
    But that is funny that he is posting that question too...
    Being in MIT and all, you would think...
    Just saying, lol funny thread.
