    I activated the setting "Encrypt device" to see how it works, now I cannot re-activate my normal phone lock. It does not give me the option to unlock phone via swipe or pattren.

    Welcome to Android Central! Encrypting your phone requires you to use a PIN or password--you can no longer use swipe to unlock or even pattern unlock, I think. Encrypting is also irreversible--you can't un-encrypt the phone.
