Hi. I have a Samsung Galaxy Gio for some years now and  problem I got is my 4 years old brother trying to access it.

 

What I have tried now:

 

1.Set a password > Ended up in permanently lock because his random password input. Need to reformat firmware.

2.Hide > Wake up late because I not hear the alarm.

3.Give him a cheap tablet > He thrown it at the floor after about 1 year, and said he want to play Galaxy Note.

 

 

Is there any program or something that can make me lock the phone without any lock.(Just put password again and again but not have to enter the email & password of google account because 90% ended up in cannot unlock.)

 

Thank you.

Alarm clocks are still available in many sizes, shapes, various power options, etc.

Cheap, too.

Get bro a set of drums to play with...an alarm clock for you...everyone is happy.. :devil:

I'm sure you'll find an app that you like but until then keep the phone with you and tell him "no".

Excellent! :thumbsup:    But I think your "bro" needs a kick in the a$$.

 

Good luck and keep your phone with you!
