    Is this on the droid? Try changing the code, then disabling it.

    It sounds like you found your answer which is great.

    I was going to post that in Applications - Screen Unlock Pattern - deselect the "Require Pattern" and then you won't need to draw the pattern, but from your post a bit ago, you have found a resolution that works. Glad to hear it.

    I think I tried deselecting and then not re-drawing the pattern but I got hung up because if I remember correctely, it didn't allow me to go any further other than "back" which did nothing to help. hmmmm I could be wrong but I dare not try it again for fear that I will be stuck once again. :)

    Hmm... this is an old thread but where are we disabling the screen unlock? Is it Location & Security --> Set Screen Lock? I created/changed a PIN and disabled screen lock but is not working. Maybe this trick doesn't work anymore.
