Screen Lock Password

Has anyone set a password for the screen lock? The Vox user guide doesn't cover this and I want to know that it works before I muck around. Thanks

Well I would think it's the same for all Androids.

So on my phone I go into settings/security/screen lock (or something very close to that) once you are in the screen lock area you can chose between having no screen lock (What you have right now) or connect the dots screen lock, password, or pin code.

If you want to back to having no screen lock just go back to the screen lock options area and select "No lock"

Yeah, the lock screen works perfectly well in all configurations I've tried. It's perfectly safe to enable as long as you don't forget your password/pin/pattern.

I love the pattern. Easy to remember and faster than the keyboard. You can also go diagonally, a long diagonal (say from bottom left to top centre button) or even around the center button just to be difficult.
