Question Unable To Remove Lock Screen/PIN

I'm not able to disable the PIN (or any security based lock screen; Password, Pin, or Pattern) and set the phone to just "Lock Screen" or even "No Lock Screen." The Face Unclock feature is also not available.

How do I remove the PIN (without a factory reset?)

I called Google Device Support the other day, and asked about the possibility of Modem/Radio within the Nexus 7 3G.. and The CSR answer was "No you can not plug a Phone Cord or Ethernet cable into the device, and if you want to listen to the radio you must download a 3rd Party App or Try our Google Music service, but it's not a radio" - Couldn't help but laugh uncontrollably for 10min straight. ~UberSlackr

Are you connected to a corporate Exchange email account? If so, I think the Exchange admin can require the lock screen and not let you turn it off.

+1 This happened to me on my last phone, built in policy in MS Exchange. I think if you delete the account, you can get the options back.

Only company email account used on the account is accessed through Gmail.

The "Lock Screen" was the selected option, until I tested out the PIN. But then when I went back into setting, Lock Screen and the other two were greyed out. So I can't remove the PIN now.
