    As an experiment (to see how I liked it) I set my lock screen to use a pin. Now I can't find where to disable pin locking.

    Any ideas / help would be appreciated.

    No, that doesn't work. I go to settings and Lock Screen is under "Personal" There I get "Screen Lock" (which says it is secured with PIN) and when I open that, I get a "confirm PIN" window and a keyboard. There is no option to change the setting anywhere that I can see...not in this window or any other.

    Usually after you confirm your pin you can then change it to whatever you like.....
