    Maybe it's just me but using the slider everytime you use your phone seems rediculous. I downloaded an app that allows you to disable the lock so now when I press the home button my screen pops up and is ready to use. Once the screen goes to black it is basically locked until you press the home key again. Granted I don't use any password protection and don't have sensitive data on my phone so why use the slider?

    Disabled my lock after about 3 days with the phone and never looked back. Thank God the update stayed that way for us that disabled it. The lock is one big pain in the ass.

    Is there anyway to disable it in Froyo? Never done it before and I don't see the option to in "Location & Security"

    Not for me. I disabled the lock for 2.1 and now I can't get rid of it in 2.2. Le sigh.
