well quick update, search the market for "no lock" and bingo....i am happy now
Unfortunately, that doesn't work for me because I want to have security. It is stupid that I have to fight the Sense lock screen, and THEN have to enter my pattern password to unlock the phone.
When you have a pattern or password or pin set for security, there should be an option to not have to go through the "pull the ring" thing too! I can't believe HTC never bothered to integrate lock-screen security still!
Go to Personalize>Lock Screen Style> No Lock screen
That disables to stupid Ring, but still allows for all the different security unlocks. I tried with Pattern, Pin, Facial and Password.
I don't have to drag the ring, but I still get my security. It makes accessing my phone much faster.
I too was going crazy with this isue, but I finally found a solution and wanted to share with you guys/girls.
My phone is the HTC one V with HTC Sense ver.4
Ok so, first thing is to disable all security on the HTC Sense.
This will give the default pull ring when u try to unlock the phone
Now i installed 2 things , the go launcher EX and the Go Locker. The settings you need to change are in Go Locker so you shouldn't need go launcher EX hopefully i just prefer it over HTC Sense.
Ok so, launch Go Locker and (if you get a screentalking about locking the home key i just by passed that by clicking "set later") click setting icon on top right corner,
All settings stayed on Default except the following :
activate Go Locker : ON
And now go to security:
I clicked on pattern
drew my pattern and saved it
and all the way to the bottom you see a setting called:
Password unlock (directly enter the password, skip the lock screen page) --> THIS IS THE ELUDED SETTING TURN THIS ON
and no more slide lock (and hopefully no ring i haven't tried it without go launcher ex) when you try and unlock your phone it will take you directly to the pattern screen
lock screen : disabled this was the default i didn't change it
advanced setting -->
Turn off system lock : Select "none" to prevent showing double lock --> just better to disable all security on the HTC Sense
