I am trying to turn off the security line which is on and I deleted the days and the times to keep callers from calling between late night and early morning. I manually turned off the security line. The days keep showing up. So I deleted check marks they still come back I cannot get this function to turn off?

I need help in turning off security line to stay off. No luck can you help. I have a Galaxy S6 edge plus please advise. Thanks.

I've forgotten my unlock screen pattern. How do I change or delete a pattern?

Galaxy S6. Changed my screen lock from code to pattern. I entered and confirmed that pattern. Now, when I want to unlock using the pattern it tells me that the pattern is wrong. I know for certain that I entered the pattern correctly and what the pattern is. I did approve an emergency backup code which allows me access after about two dozen failed attempts at the pattern. Once in, the phone will not allow me to change back from pattern to code WITHOUT THE DAMNED CODE it refuses to identify. I'm flummoxed. Verizon said, "not my job". Samsung provided the solution of doing a total reset of the phone. I would lose years of photos and data. Not going to happen. I have archived my data. I have allowed remote access. Don't know what to do! Help!
