Can anyone tell me how to add an administrator so I can disable and remove the pin lock I added to my lock screen?

I take it you haven't yet flashed a custom rom or anything?

I set up a pin when I was drunk once and forgot it later on. Had to go in to recovery wipe data etc and reflash a ROM... that will work.

In android if you enter your password or pin (think it works with pin as well) wrong too many times it should ask you to log into your Google account then it will unlock and you can remove it.

Hi guys

I know my pin but in the settings its not possible to diable it. Only options are to choose a different method like pattern swipe.
Still running stock Touchwiz for the S3

Yes you can remove lock screen from menu
Ok, to all who have a galaxy S3: yes you can remove the pin lock screen through the menu! No flash this or reset that, it's a waste of your time! Your going to brick your phone with all that crap! Very easy, here goes:
1. settings
2. lock screen
3. screen lock (secured with pin)
4. enter your pin: if entered correctly this will bring up the screen lock menu
5. select your screen lock, (swipe, motion, face unlock, face & voice, pattern, pin, password, none)
6. choose what you want.
yes, it's that easy!
Googled for a couple days straight and found nothing like this. Was going through my phone when I just lucked out and figuired it out. Just wanted to give back to these forums for all the help they give me.
