Found that the phone unlocks by itself if you have face.recognition enable and a pin as a backup.....if the phone is locked and it attempts to read your face jus press back button and phone takes you right to the home screen

Got your e-mail, and I'm not seeing it, either. Point the phone away from your face. Does it still do it?

Seems to me it might be unlocking that quickly, and you think you're bypassing it.

I've let HTC know, though, and they'll take a look, jic.

Face unlock is just a novelty anyways, not real security. Someone can look up your facebook picture, point the phone at it, and it unlocks perfectly.
