    Just got my Note Edge and am loving it. I tried out the fingerprint scanner, but found that it was just as inconsistent a security measure as the pattern unlock on my old Note 2. It worked for the first three times I had it on my phone, but I was able to get into the phone with a swipe or by tapping on an app from the edge screen. Plus, my daughter wants to play on my phone and I don't want to be the only one who can unlock it.

    The issue is that the swipe option in the lockscreen menu is greyed out and says, "option turned off by administrator" or something similar. I've tried turning it back on, but I can't find the option to do so. Anyone have any ideas?

    Thanks you for this. I thought when you used Foxfi that you had to use the fingerprint lock. Much better now.

    How do I bring back the ripple effect back? I have seem to have lost that after putting the lock.
