    To disable the lock screen (and power down pop up), go back into the Dialer and use the code *#7594#, select Shutdown and press the Home button. This, I have confirmed, does work on the Charge.

    There is also the option to disable the full battery pop up, but I'm not sure if it actually works or not (I'll be able to find out later tonight). *#3844228#. It allows you to disable it, but the option never actually worked on my Fascinate, so I don't know if it will work on the Charge.

    Thanks for the instructions. Before I try this, what are the steps to re-enable the lock screen?

    Same steps but this time pick to enable instead of disable to set the setting back.

    Works as promised! :]

    Is there any way to disable the menu/home/back/search buttons from waking the phone though? I love not having to slide, but those keys are so easily pressed in my pocket...

    Well I must be the one num nuts that can't find this shutdown key. Could someone tell a really slow android guy. I really don't like the lock screen.

    When you enter the number *#7594# into your dialer it should bring up a menu where that is the only item with a checkbox next to it. That being said, the first two times I entered the number nothing happened, so I would try clearing it or rebooting the phone and entering the number again.

    Those buttons don't wake my phone when pressed with the lock screen disabled, only the power button wakes my phone.

    If you remove the lock screen (so that you no longer have to "swipe" or move a puzzle piece, etc.), does the screen still go to black after a set period of time in order to save battery?

    Assuming that the screen still goes to black, what button(s) will wake it? And will a screen press wake it too?

    Yes, the screen still times out just as it did before and the only button that will wake the phone is the power button.

    For those who use a pin or pattern to unlock their DC but just want to get rid of the swipe-to-unlock screen:

    -remove your pin/pattern
    -follow the steps to remove the lock screen
    -go back and re-enable your pin/pattern lock, you'll see that it doesn't work
    -bring up the dialer and enter the *#7594#, then uncheck the shutdown option, hit the home button

    You'll now see that you've removed the swipe screen but still have your pin or password input.

    Not on my Droid Charge. Any hard button will wake it (power, menu, home, back, search, volume up, volume down).

    I noticed something else that this changes. Rather than a menu popping up with options upon a long-press of the power button, the phone just shuts down. I liked that menu, and I sometimes hold down the power key long enough to accidentally activate it.

    I also liked the popup menu that would come up with a long press of the power button. I carry my phone in my pocket and it is constantly getting turned on all the time. What's weird is that I can't tell which button will wake the phone. The power button obviously will, but others do too, but it's not always the same one that can wake it. I tried reverting back to have the locking enabled, but have not had any luck with it. I've decided to do a factory wipe or just root. It's a good a time as any to try rooting I guess.

    Okay, I did this and it worked great. But, when I did it again to re-enable the lock screen, I can't get the "shutdown" screen to come up again. Are you sure *#7594# is the right code to re-enable it?

    Okay, I have repeated tried to re-enable the lock and I can't. I did everything in reverse, except clicked on "Hiddenmenu Disable" instead of "enable". Any suggestions?

    Thx,

    Wow...I'm glad this thread is so active. LOL

    Well, I've figured it out...took me a bit of playing around, but I figured it out. Once you do the initial part of it:

    Go to Dialer and enter *#83786633, then press the home key
    Go back into the Dialer, clear those numbers, then *#22745927
    Now a screen will appear asking for the SPC Code, enter 000000
    Press the Hiddenmenu Enable radio button, then press home button


    ...you don't ever have to do it again. The important part to be able to switch back and forth is the second part of it:

    To disable the lock screen (and power down pop up), go back into the Dialer and use the code *#7594#, select Shutdown and press the Home button.

    To re-enable the lock screen and the power down pop up, all you have to do is go into the dialer, punch in *#7594# and you should get the "Shutdown" screen again...UNCHECK it and then click HOME. You have re-enabled your lock screen. To disable is again, do it all over...go into the dialer, punch in *#7594#, and CHECK the "Shutdown" option...that's it!! Much easier to remember *#7534# then all of those other numbers.

    Let me say this is what's working on my phone.

    Thanks,
