    I just picked up a droid to use for back up in case one of our phones fail. (2 Maxxs, and 2 Bionics in this house). Anyway, I know this phone was working until very recently, as I got it from a co worker that only recently upgraded to a Mac Product...lol. So, I charged it up, and when I went to swipe the screen to unlock, I get the haptic, and the bar will move to the right and even says "unlock" in ghost print. There is a yellow dot that appears where the speaker icon is, but the bar won't go all the way to the dot, and the screen won't unlock. My question is, is there a way to bypass the screen lock so that I can disable it? Or any other ideas? Thanks...

    Oh, I have powered it up and done a battery pull with no success. Thanks again...

    Using stock settings I don't think you can get rid of the swipe to unlock.

    It could be a mechanical problem with your touchscreen.
