    So I have my lock screen set up for swipe only to unlock. Not a fan of too much number pressing, etc., just to unlock the phone. Anyway, I wanted to remove the glowing/sun swipe and just get down to old school with no effect. However, when I go into my lock screen settings this aspect is greyed out and I can't change anything. Does anyone know why? I used to be able to change it, because I know for sure that I flipped through the three different settings.

    Thanks!

    Maybe a screenshot of your Lock screen settings might help... you must have changed something else is my only guess right now, but I will not know until I see what you changed.

    That looks the same as mine, except mine has Wake up in lock screen option (which is unchecked).

    I wonder if it disappeared because I disabled a whole bunch of useless Samsung apps.

    Sounds like a very strong possibility.

    Can't figure out which one it might be. Might just have to enable everything again. Although I guess it's not the end of the world.

    I added back the only ones it could be and nothing. I don't know what's causing it.

    And the option that you were talking about is from S Voice. I had that disabled too. When I enabled it the wake in lock screen option showed back up, but nothing else changed.

    Interesting, but you did not tell me which one you enabled... if I was to guess it might be something to do with Air view. Did you disable that and was that the one you enabled?

    Well I enabled everything I disabled and it didn't come back. I tried air view and all of the other Samsung apps that I had disabled and it still didn't come back.

    Then it sounds like you are going to have to do a Factory Reset to get it back if you really want it back.

    Yeah. Probably won't go that far. Thinking about rooting, though.

    Figured it out, and I'm kind of surprised no one else has noticed this. If you have a live wallpaper on the lock screen you can't change the type of unlock swipe. The second you change it to a static wallpaper, you can.

    It really shouldn't be a surprise... live wallpaper's use battery... at least as far as I'm concerned I don't use live wallpapers... and I doubt it most people use them unless showing off a live wallpaper. And just another great thing that you might have wanted to say you had changed.

    Yeah. I like them. I didn't say I changed it because I pretty much immediately loaded on my live wallpaper, so I didn't make the connection between the two.

    All over the place. I don't notice any extra lag or battery drain from them, either.
