I have a Samsung Galaxy S (with DMB).

It's running Gingerbread and it doesn't have an unlock screen. I have tried to set it up through the settings but it doesn't work. Any idea why?

I am not familiar with DMB, what is that? What happens when you access the security settings? Does it appear to work, but then when you test it out it does not? – ZnewmaN Dec 5 '12 at 21:13
DMB is DAB and Online TV, it lets me set the lock but it just dosent work when i wake the galaxy up. – Marius Torvmark Dec 5 '12 at 21:16
Have you changed the lock timeout in the security settings? – ZnewmaN Dec 5 '12 at 21:44
Could you provide some screenshots showing your lock settings? – Flow Dec 5 '12 at 22:36
I dont need help anymore, i did a factory reset and it started working. I guess someone had changed something before i got it! :) – Marius Torvmark Dec 6 '12 at 6:49
