    Puzzle screen lock and phone lock options missing

    My daughter played around with my Galaxy S recently and now my puzzle screen lock and the phone lock options are gone. (When pressing down the power button for a longer time, I earlier had these options: silence, plane mode and power off. Now I only have the power off option.
    When going to settings, there are no screen lock options under the display menu, only the screen timout. Under location and security, there is a set screen lock option, with the following menus: none, pattern, pin and password. Don't seem to be working though...
    Any idea how I could get back the above missing lock options?
    Thanks a lot!

    OK! I got everything back. Will write it down, just in case this happens to anyone else.
    I just connected my phone to the computer and synced with Kies. Everything is working great now.

    Don't worry Tiskers, you don't have to deal with "kies" thats only used for Canadian or European Galaxy S model phones. (RS correct me of I'm wrong)

    +1. Kies doesn't work with our CDMA Fascinate.

    i have the same issue now. i am trying to unlock the issue by using the same method, like sync to kies but then.. i don't think it is resolved.

    hope we can get updated details on how you were able to resolve the same.

    appreciate it.. thanks very much!
