    Hi all,

    My phone was recently updated (not sure how to find what it was about, seemed to be a big one though) and now I have a lock screen on my phone. It used to be a scrolling gallery, but I can't find the option to put that back on or turn lock screen off. Anyone remember how to do it, or has it been removed for some reason?

    If it's been removed is there any way to remove the update? I work from home and have absolutely no use for having to swipe up every time I want to use my phone.

    Thanks!

    What model is your phone?
    Just a regular HTC One as far as I know.

    It's the 4.3 update which removes the lockscreen. No options now to have a lockscreen so you cannot change it. Don't think you can downgrade back to 4.2 but not certain on that

    The 4.3 update doesn't remove the lockscreen. I have it and I'm on AT&T.

    Sorry I meant, it removes the option to change lockscreen. You had a few different lockscreen options on 4.2 but now we have none on 4.3

    You've got the same lockscreen options on 4.3 that you had on 4.2

    It's not in the settings anymore? How do you change the lockscreen then on 4.3? I don't know how to post a picture of my settings here to show the option has gone

    Using this now, thanks Jim.

    Hard to believe that someone actually took the time and effort to sit down and remove this feature from the phone. Literally the first thing that caught my eye with this phone was the scrolling lock screen gallery, and when I bought the phone and found how annoying having to swipe up every 5 minutes was I was damn happy you could turn it off. Now some genius has removed both options.

    Better yet, simply go to Settings>Personalize>Lock Screen Style, and select No Lock Screen.

    I have a Telstra (Australia) HTC ONE and the 4.3 update no longer has the the "Lock Screen Style" option and forces the default lock screen.... wrong decision to remove this in my view. From other threads I have read other updates (4.3) from other carriers also have this option removed.

    The lock screen option is gone completely from 4.4. Since updating this morning I have both the pattern unlock and the Quick app unlock.

    Where do you get to add extra pages to the lock screen? I see the the little arrows (at the top) hinting that I can swipe left on my lock screen but it does nothing when I do that.

    you need to swipe left in the directions of the arrows. it doesnt need to be at the top (in can be anywhere alongside the right side of the screen) but close to the frame.

    you will be presented with a + sign which will allow you to add a 1 widget per new page.

    Do you mean to do that in the actual lock screen? I swipe and swipe but the only thing that shows anything is the weather clock that changes to "slide up to unlock" and that's it.

    yes in the actual lockscreen.

    you must swipe very close to the right border of the phone. it wont work if you do it in the middle of the screen.

    I just did that after writing the last post and it work. It's a shame they didn't allow swiping anywhere on the screen.

    I will add some and see how it goes but I already miss the productivity template that I had which showed email, missed calls and SMS.

    i suppose its done to avoid swiping to the widget page by mistake. since its not locked or anything there is nothing preventing it from moving over to the other pages.

    you still get notifications on your lockscreen from emails, calls, sms and more (you need to set it up in settings).

    The update reverted the productivity notifications to defaults, so that's why I didn't see them. Thanks for reminding me that they were still there.

    ...I had avoided updateing since I bought my HTC one at&t, but finally bit in... Very sorry i did, like the OP. The official AT&T update sucks horribly! My lock screen scrolling gallery is gone with no way to set it back, it seems. I loved that, and want it back. My battery life has dropped in half, and charging takes longer. The battery use tracker says the android system is using all the battery, even more than the display.

    Desperate to get back to 4.2 / stock!!! Help?
