    I could be wrong. But do you have the exact same problem?

    If Goots had a fix he'll have to send it to you in a private message (PM) as he did above, most likely as it's a security feature and he won't want to post it publicly.

    stonkr, you're a star

    I'm sorry Claudehoarau, there is a fix, but I got into a fair bit of trouble last time I told someone how to get round the screen lock security, and I'm not prepared to get that flak again.

    Apologies but I'm sure you understand.

    Edit: Besides, that was about 10 firmware releases ago, so the method probably wouldn't even work now. I'm sure the security flaw has been patched by google.

    You'll need a samsung service centre, then.

    Can't believe people would be mean to Goots!
