    Default The Ring --- how can you get rid of it? :(

    is there anyway to completely disable the lock screen?

    like with the ring and everything--- it's annoying.

    when i press the power button i'de like to go right to passcode or face unlock, or if i have that turned off, right to my main screen.

    the lock-screen-ring thing just seems so unnecessary

    is there a way to remove it? i can't find it??

    I doubt that you can, anyway the ring serves a good aesthetic purpose, its also useful if you dont have a locking so all you have to do is drag the shortcut in to the ring.

    eliminate it completely. can just turn the screen on (which you have to do regardless) and click on whatever has a notification.

    it really serves not functional purpose. its not as if there are buttons that can be pressed in your pocket or bag that would turn the screen on without you knowing about it

    This may not seem like a bad idea at first, but trust me it is. I have a Galaxy S2 that has lost its lockscreen and it does cause problems. This is a known problem with the GS2 unfortunately, one reason I am getting the One S. I have had buttons hit in my pocket, but more of a problem is that when getting a text message or phone call the screen lights up and is active. With out the lockscreen I would get text messages and not hear/feel the notification and with the screen awake after it I would send texts back, make phone calls and one time I downloaded 3 apps. It's amazing what that screen thinks is an input when its in your pocket. So while it may seen nice to not have a lockscreen, it is not.

    Yes. I would hit the power button to lock it but when it got a call or text, because there was no lockscreen, it would open up to the last screen I was on. If that was the dialer or call log it would call someone or dial a hundred numbers. If it was the messaging app it would send giberish back to whichever message it opened up. It was more than annoying.

    Maybe there should be an option like there is one in the vanilla ICS (Galaxy Nexus) where if you have a password or a pin, you don't have to swipe (ring in this case), and instead it only asks to key in the password/pin.

    But then there's the possible issue of the Emergency Call button with that too..

    Hi arickinreallife,

    No Lock works really well for me: https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...d.nolock&hl=en

    When I hit the power button after standby it goes straight to my screen without any locks.

    Hope that helps!

    Just figured it out. SETTINGS -> Personalize -> Lock screen style -> Choose No lock screen and click apply.

    Here's another vote for NO LOCK. I'm usually fine with the lock, except when I'm biking and using MapMyRide. It's not easy to swipe and tap the phone while I'm riding, and eliminating the lock-ring swipe is a HUGE improvement. When I'm finished it's a quick "two-tap" to restore the lock-ring. Thanks for the suggestion!
