    When I go to the Select screen lock submenu, I find that every option except Pattern, PIN and Password are greyed out.

    Also, in the Lock screen widget submenu, Favorite apps or Camera is greyed out, but shown as being turned on. I have been able to put the WatchOn app on the lockscreen via its settings.

    I have other menus that are greyed in the camera. The ISO, antishake, and Save As options are greyed out.

    I'll look forward to any suggestions. Thanks.

    And which of these three choices is selected? Change it and see what happens.

    When changing to one of the three available options, the lock screen unlock changes accordingly. The same three options available remain.

    Yes, I am using FoxFi. I set it up and tried it, although I plan to use it infrequently. I think I know where your headed. I read somewhere that it hooks to security features of the phone to require some type of protected screen lock. If so, is there a way to switch that off and on? A Tasker script would be ideal. Making my own is beyond my current skill level.
