    Welcome to Android Central! Is this on the lockscreen? If so, you would have to go to Settings>Security, and change the screenlock method. But if the device is encrypted, you might be required to keep the PIN unlock method, since encryption only allows PIN or password unlock (not pattern unlock or swipe).

    Thank you B.Diddy,'
    We bought this new and during set up we also set a pincode for locking the unit. Each time we switch it on it asks for the pin code. Now we want to remove it at to always have it open. We have tried under Settings-My device-Lock screen but it seems not to be the right Place.
    Any suggestions what to do-----This is our first attemp to use the Android so a bit blind folded

    Thank you---will try it. Happy 2015!

    Rukbat! I have now tried your suggestion. I can do Device--Lockscreen. In next step the NONE is not highlited and I can not activate it.
    Any ideas??

    Sounds like a carrier modification. Can you use Swipe? That's more annoying than None, but easier than a PIN code.

    (Also, if you install Tasker [for $3 - maybe ITTT for free will also do it] and the Tasker settings addon, you can probably have Tasker turn off the keyguard and change the lock screen to none. They usually just disable the menu choice, they don't bother to dig into the code to remove the actual function, which is what an app like that uses.
