Opposing the pedestrianisation of Norwich city centre!!!!
I set a security pin number up on my phone and have subsequently decided I don't want to have to use it. When I go into the security options in settings the option to just swipe the screen is greyed out so can't be selected. Will I have to restore the phone to factory settings to get around this?

Is KNOX activated in the security settings? If not, then try and "Clear Credentials" in the same settings area.

Cheers for getting back to me. Can't find anything that relates to Knox. I tried clear credentials, but that hasn't sorted it.

This is why the forum shouldn't have chased Pagnell out of here with torches and pitchforks. He'd know. I'll do a little digging and see what I find later.

Just another thought, you could turn screen lock off and download a lock screen app. (If all else fails)

You'll find nothing. The forum clique have buried him so deep that no one will EVER find him.

Ok, thanks. What do you mean about Pagnell? Has he left?

Hi Red, have you tried searching on google for a technical answer rather than asking on a football forum? I think you might get better results that way.

Hi mnb089mnb, yes I have tried searching on Google for a technical answer, I tried a comprehensive search on the internet before I asked on our forum. I've also called into the 02 shop. They have suggested backing up files and doing a factory reset which is what it looks like I'll be doing. I thought I'd also try the tech issues of a football forum too, just in case somebody on here had had the same problem though. Thanks for your advice
