    Sweep glass to unlock AND puzzle piece unlock at the same time???

    For a Samsung Galaxy S Fascinate: I can't figure this out. I've rebooted my phone twice since getting it hoping it would correct itself.

    But by default, the sweep glass to unlock is on. That's fine. But when I receive a txt msg and I go to unlock the phone, the sweep glass function AND the puzzle piece unlock is on too.

    I know to go change unlock options:

    -settings
    -location and security
    -set screen lock

    Then my options are:

    NONE: Disable screen unlock settings
    PATTERN: Draw pattern to unlock screen
    PIN: Enter Pin to unlock screen
    PASSWORD: Enter password to unlock screen

    I think I'm supposed to select the first one but it automatically bumps me back to the previous screen. So essentially, I have no control on disabling the sweep glass or puzzle function.

    Anyone have any ideas???

    Yup, it automatically bounces me back to the "Set screen lock" screen.

    So, you get two lock screens at the same time when you turn the screen back on after it's gone to sleep? Or is it one after the other?

    Sorry, I didn't explain myself.

    But yes, after I recieve a txt msg and the phone is in sleep mode, both lock screens are there. I can use either one and it unlocks boths.

    That is just bizarre. I have never heard of that.

    I take it your phone is stock, not rooted (hacked). Have you installed any funky apps, like a task killer?

    Nope... I just wiped it last night (hard reset). As soon as it went back to stock it was the first thing I checked and yup, both unlock screens came on when I was in sleep mode and received a txt msg.

    When the phone is in sleep mode and there are no new txt msgs, I only get the slide glass screen.

    Are you using the stock messaging app or a replacement?

    If you're running a replacement app like Go SMS or Handcent, you need to disable notifications in the stock messaging app. I wonder if this isn't causing the double lock screens.

    I know that if you are stock and using the puzzle unlock screen and get a text msg the puzzle piece appears showing the text msg and you can swipe it to go to the msg. I wonder if you are on the glass unlock is the puzzle piece overlaying because a txt msg came in? No solution, just thinking that could be the issue.
