I want to either stop this function or at the very least set the number of attempts to a higher number than 3.

  • What do you mean? The lock screen (which is 5 per 30 second lockout) or the sim pin (3 incorrect and sim is puk locked). Neither can be changed.

  • At the lock screen, after a failed attempt I am greeted with the message "You have incorrectly attempted..." Ok, I see, you are saying that there is no way to change that number.

There is no way to change the limit on incorrectly entered screen lock codes, unless you make your own custom ROM with this ability.

It should be set at 5 incorrect entries triggers a 30 second wait period - if this isn't the case then the ROM maker has changed this.
