    So I needed to run Foxfi this morning, first time since upgrading to JB. Any way it required a lockscreen password on the first run. (I've always just used swipe) So now I want to return to swipe but the options None, Swipe and Face unlock are grayed out. Anyone have an idea?

    Thanks,
    Bill

    To use FoxFi, you need a certificate. That certificate will require a screen lock. Thus you have your choice of FoxFi or no screen lock.

    I only use it when my Internet is down. So I can live turning it on and off.

    Haven't been able to figure out a way to get rid of it entirely, but I found a much more manageable way around it..

    Settings --> Security --> "Automatically Lock" --> Select 30 minutes

    This way, the pattern lock won't show up until your screen has been off for 30+ minutes. Which is basically never for me, unless I'm asleep. Much easier to live with.
