    If you use your work's email on your phone, and your work administrator mandates a lock screen with a passcode, you can not turn off the lock. I have tried with SEVERAL apps.

    The reason is simple. There are some stuff the Android SDK will NOT allow developers to override unless you root your phone so the app gain internal access. WidgetLocker and others do a work-around by pop-up some screen "on top" which is not solving the problem exactly.
     
  4. Uninstall, reboot, and reinstall?

    well I am beginning to think I may have to do the root thing ???
     
  6. How old is your phone? And what is it? Rooting may void the warranty or service plan.

    The reason this happens is that the Android lockscreen and the Widgetlocker lock screen are two seperate lockscreens.

    When you disable the lockscreen you are only really disabling the Android one, which Widgetlocker does anyway. If you want no lockscreen at all you would need to uncheck the 'Widgetlocker enabled' checkbox in the Widgetlocker options as well.

    I've sent emails to the WL team asking for an option to turn off/on WL through the notification bar. Looks like they haven't listened. No Lock only controls the stock lockscreen, so WL won't be affected. Thought I would still use NL to keep the stock lockscreen off. If you don't, you'll see it whenever you turn off WL.
