    Default Lock Screen Options Greyed Out

    I have a Sprint GS3 and want to put the camera icon on my lock screen and I have my phone to unlock with a pattern. When I go to Settings -> Security the Lock Screen Option line is greyed out.

    If I reset the security to Swipe then Lock Screen Options are available but then I have no security.

    Any suggestions or work arounds to get the camera icon on the lock screen?

    Thanks!

    I would guess this is by design. Clicking on the camera would unlock the phone...so there's no security if you put it on the screen.

    so you can have icons/shortcuts on the screen or security, not both.

    You could also temporarily remove security to change the options to what you want, and then re-enable the security. The changes will stick. You will only be able to use them, though, if you have a delay between screen blackout and lock set (or something like that).

    Did you try turning off pin first, and then going back fresh and enabling pattern?

    Make sure you dont have an exchange account (or something similar that requires strong security settings) , enabled on the phone.This would disable the relatively weaker screen lock options like face detect nd pattern.only pin or password works.

    Unlock it first then choose no security option. Go back and choose any of the security options and hopefully this will work. If you are using your company issued phone, then this may not be possible.
