    Default Lock problem

    Hello all. I am having an issue with the pattern lock screen that I cannot seem to resolve. I would like to turn on and off pattern lock without having to go to the settings menu. I have tried a couple of different programs from the market but none of them seem to work. Is anybody else having this issue? Do you think a complete wipe and reboot would fix the problem? Thanks.

    ive usually had rough experiences with third-party apps that control the lock screen. sometimes they work, but a lot of times they wont.

    OK, I know you said you don't want to go to the settings menu. Bear with me anyway. Did you know about the shortcut option? Long press a blank area on your home screen, then tap shortcuts -> Settings -> Location & Security Settings. It creates a shortcut directly to the settings screen you want. Hopefully that helps a little
