Security Lock Issues - How to Fix?
I took my Droid X back yesterday and got a Droid 2. Unlike the Droid X, Droid 2 seemingly forces you to have to use a slide lock each time you wake up the phone. This is VERY tedious, as it takes two steps to wake up MY phone. I have to press the lock button, and then I have to slide the screen lock. And since I have set up a lock pattern, that's an additional 3rd step. There seemingly is no way to disable the lock pattern (once set up), nor the slide lock. What gives?
Why aren't there additional options that allow me, the user and owner of my phone, to set it up like I want? This should work like MS Windows, in that I can CHOOSE whether or not I want to be prompted for a password or not.
Am I wrong and overlooking something, or is this how it is? And if this IS how it is, what will Motorola do to address this in the next software patch (hopefully another is coming)?
Thanks in advance.

Okay, I've figured out the pattern lock problem. It was a user error, but things weren't clear IMO. When I went to "Set up screen lock" I was presented with the pattern lock. I JUST figured out that it wanted me to put in my pattern BEFORE making changes. Sigh...
One last thing, I'm using Screen Mode Widget instead of No Lock. No Lock doesn't prevent accidentally answering calls. But SMW requires an unlocked answer of a call, which is much better.
They still need to make it a native option to disable the slide lock, like in 2.1.

I came from a BlackBerry, and one thing I'm definitely appreciating about RIM is that they gave you all of the options to choose how you wanted things. I don't like companies thinking for me if it means I don't have an option to "think" differently.
