    Ok, so what I want is my phone to:

    1. Autolock only if in home screen (as my old nokia did).
    2. Otherwise I want it to lock only if I press the lock (power) button.
    Of course the screen will still shut off after the programed period of time and you will have to press the home or power button to make it turn on again.
    So if i'm for example writing a message and stop for a while and the screen goes off, I dont have to unlock the phone again, just press home.


    Do you know of any aplication that does that?
    If it's a paid app, please be sure it does exactly this.

    I'm ussing No lock for the time being which parcially satisfies my needs.

    Thanks in advance... Very usefull info on these forums...

    I hate the lock screen period. I use the app, Battery Indicator Pro, when it opens you have an option to disable the lock screen. When activated the only time I see the lock screen is the next time I reboot the phone. But you have to hit the power button to bring her back on. Home button does nothing on my charge.

    Yeah... No lock lets you turn the screen on pressing either the power button or home, but I also want it to be able to lock sometimes. don't want some peoble messing with my phone.

    Tasker might be able to do something like this. If you get it via the devs website, it's a week trial period as opposed to the 15 mins the market gives you.

    What exactly is it about the unlock you don't like, entering your pin again, or just the fact that it's locking? There's a cracking app called Unlock With WiFi which allows you to set up "safe" networks which when connected, will disable the pin lock.
