I have a Samsung Mesmerize (US Cellular) and I can't figure this one out. The phone has had a password on it since it was set up in the store. I want to get rid of that and use the pattern thing instead. I went into Settings / Location and set a pattern. The pattern works if I press the power button to sleep the screen just fine. However, if I power off the phone, and then power it back on, I get the Password prompt where I have to actually type in the whole password. I can't figure out where to turn this off. On an Optimus I have, I just go to Settings, Location & Security, and I have an option for Change Screen Lock. I can choose pattern, PIN, or password. On the Mesmerize, when I go to Settings, Location & Security, that option is not there. I was able to set a pattern but it doesn't take affect on a power off/on situation. Any help would be great. Thanks.
