    It would be nice to be able to toggle hotspot, flashlight, wifi, airplane mode, notifications, etc on the lock screen without having to unlock the device.
    Of course not all menu items should be available, such as settings, but it's a hassle to have to unlock the device when I want to just enable/disable hotspot only.

    Any way to do this, or is this possibly coming in the future BB10 updates?

    Imo the more crap you put on the lock screen, the less it becomes a lock screen

    Ultimately, you can't satisfy every circumstance or individual need. If they did that, you'd gave a thread from someone else complaining about it in now time.

    I fail to understand some of the comments.
    Why is it bad because it makes Blackberry "more like Android"?
    Blackberry already got a huge amount of blood transplanted from Android - apps.

    Besides, I don't see why having a quick settings access would be problematic for some, as surely there can (and should) be an option to disable it for those who don't want it.
    I don't care if it's not Android-like or Apple-like.
    If it doesn't do what I need it to do, it loses its value in my books.
    Not that this issue rises to that level, but you get the point.

    I also don't see the point about lock screen being less like a lock screen. If I could I would get rid of it. In fact that's what I do on my iPad with a tweak from Cydia. Never saw anything desirable about the very idea of a lock screen - to me lock screen is always a necessary evil, necessary because of security issues but otherwise something I would prefer not to be there.

    Anyway, interesting how one would intend to spite someone else for no gain, as lock screen quick settings access can be purely an option. Like two finger swipe down from the top of the screen, like accessing quick settings from the apps. No harm to anyone about that, I'd think.

    For starters, having toggles on the lockscreen could lead to security vulnerability. Anyway, never mind that.


    You wanted an option to disable lockscreen. Go to settings, security &privacy, lockscreen and toggle "Allow power/lock key to unlock device" to on. You can now use your power button to unlock phone. The lockscreen will never come up unless you swipe up to unlock.

    Lol then just remove the lock screen and the power button would not go to the lock screen anymore. A password less lock screen is imo the same as what you want so what's the point of this thread?

    Lol had a friend with years and years of school ebooks on his ipad stolen because he didn't have a password. They turned off the Internet and now he can't track it.

    Anyways imagine there was a lock screen with password but people could toggle stuff on and off like that. What's the point of a password? None in that scenario

    At the moment you can chose your toggles so ectually if you can chose the toggles you want on your lockscreen you can still keep it safe. Like BT or screenrotation ...

    Screen rotate to read what? The clock screen? See the wallpaper better? It's called a LOCK(ED) screen

    I give some examples of the possibilities we have right now. Sure that BlackBerry will find something to help these people out. At the moment we can chose what we want in our Quick Settings and maybe if we are patient enough BlackBerry will add a feature in the 10.3.2 or something like that.
    For example:
    For those who want it. Go into Settings Quick Settingsand toggle on Quick Settings on Lockscreen. That's a way to let people chose what they want.

    I would love to have just two things available through Quick Settings from the lock screen: 1) to be able to Mute the phone quickly, 2) to turn on the Airplane Mode. These two will be really handy when attending meetings and for traveling.

    I thought purpose of a lock screen was to in fact lock the device. If you need to change a setting, would you not need to unlock the device?

    Personally, this would not be something useful in the least. To me anyways.

    Generally true, but it would make sense to have some settings accessible without the need to unlock (of course, if it could be done without compromising the security). It would be similar to being able to answer calls from the lock screen. One such case is the ability to mute the phone, which will be very handy in meetings.

    Yes, very handy for someone who wants to steal your phone and cut immediately BlackBerry Protect. He cuts the network and you can't send ring command or erase the device remotely. Now, on Q10/Z10 it's easy just to pull the battery, but what about Z30/Passport?

    Any access to phone settings must be password protected. It's a basic security requirement.

    If the choice is given to the owner to activate or turn off the option, what would be the difference between this and the owner deciding not to put a password on the device to unlock?

    Okay, fine, no option to turn the Airplane Mode on or off, but how about allowing to mute the phone? Any phone that targets professionals should allow turning off the volume without the need to go through several steps to do it. It's a must have in the business world!

    Thanks for pointing this out. This option is currently not available on my Z10, Q10, or Z30 (I believe it will come with 10.3....). Either way, unless I am misreading the option, flipping the phone when it's ringing does not seem to be the same as putting the phone on Mute, in which case it won't ring at all.
