    Default Samsung Galaxy s3 Lock screen won't open

    Hi, I was going through my settings on my S3.. and I clicked on the TalkBack thing in settings.. now my phone's lock screen wont open.. settings with it changed from just swiping once to unlock.. to having to double tap and unlock... and it won't work. I managed to finally get it open once which took forever.. pressed the settings icon.. and it wouldnt scroll down the list to get to Accessibility so I can Uncheck TalkBack. Idk what this thing is but its a nightmare and it its making me double click everything.. it won't scroll .. and then after the screen went off.. I am locked out and I can't unlock it to get back into my phone. I don't know if clicking that talkback thing has anything to do with how my phone is acting now.. but I didn't do anything else in settings.. just clicked on talkback to see what it was. Certainly not doing that again.. Can someone please help?

    Welcome to the forums.
    Have you tried rebooting the device?

    My lock screen won't swipe to unlock. I took the battery out and rebooted...also did a "restart" once it booted....still can't swipe it to unlock.

    Having the same issue all of a sudden. started when i tried to turn off talk back.
    It was off but was not off. I kept getting the aggrivating voice telling me everything i was doing.
    no solution yet.

    Yeah, Talkback is a PIA to deal with. You'll have to use a two finger swipe to do what you'd normally do with one finger - that should allow you to get in and turn Talkback off for good.
