    Default Note 3: No quick access to camera

    hi,

    I am missing the quick access camera icon in the lock screen. It was there right after the update to 4.4.2 but then I had to do two factory resets due to random reboots and the 2nd was because of the S-Pen no longer working. Now the phone works but the camera icon in the lower right corner is gone. Any ideas except a factory reset

    I was going to say along the same lines as G3, though I just have to go to settings > lockscreen to get to the shortcut options. I have the shortcut option under lockscreen ..included a screenshot to show.

    As was previously mentioned you should be able to change it here by going into settings> device> lockscreen> shortcuts> Camera.

    Ok what you need to do is to turn the multiple widgets option on then click on it.
    Then click on favourite apps or camera and select camera.

    Then you can have the camera on your lock screen.

    I have the same menu options as you OP.

    That's strange, though I have read that people who are in Australia (I think that's where it was...it was a post last yr some time in here where they) were not given that option with their phone.

    My only other thing was to make sure you have the swipe lockscreen enabled ...but I see from your screenshot that you do. Maybe try changing it to a pin or pattern then back to the swipe and see if anything changes.

    If not, I'm sure others in here who are much more helpful can give you some advice/ideas. I hope you get it sorted out!

    Sarks.

    I'm on Verizon also, do you have your lockscreen set to use a pin or pattern? I've saw from previous posts that it needs to be on a swipe to unlock screen for shortcuts to be used.

    Yes, this is not an option if you use pin or whatever. This is what I see for pinNote 3: No quick access to camera-uploadfromtaptalk1393678917625.jpg

    This is what I see when set to swipe. When set to swipe I have the option for shortcuts and to swipe right for camera.

    Speaking of this topic, I have the shortcuts on my lock screen as well. When I push on them it wants me to swipe....Therefore taking me to my home screen. So what's the point of them? I want to be able to press the camera or text etc....but doesn't work.

    To get them to work (in my experience) you have to push on the app shortcut and swipe upwards whilst you do so. This worked for me vs just pushing on them which wouldn't take me to the app itself.

    Hopefully this makes sense, it's really early here in San Diego! Ha

    Just swipe from the app upwards. You don't have to push the app first

    I got this reply yesterday :

    Thank you for contacting Samsung Customer Support.

    Following your email, we have contacted the engineers. They are aware that some versions of this update have removed the camera shortcut from the lock screen.

    The developers are considering fixing this with an over the air update. Due to the nature of the work they are undertaking we are unable to give a release date for this particular update.

    Mine's a Germany bought Note 3 that received the 4.4.2 update in the UK. The primary update (383mb) put the lock screen camera shortcut on. The secondary app update took it off. Looks like we just wait....
