Is there any way to disable auto screenlock?
It only has 4 time periods, 30s, 1m, 3m and 5m.
Other Windows phones allows off, so it seems Nokia has done this by design.
This is an extremly annoying feature if driving where I listen to music from the phone through the sterro, if I want to skip a song I have to unlock first which is distracting and dangerous instead of simply swiping.
I can understand it can save battery but when it's plugged in this isn't an issue, plus I lock my phone when I put away anyway.
This is a design feature which is forced on us instead of allowing us to choose for ourselves.
Os there anyway this can be changed in a future update.
As I said other windows phones like HTC HD7 never had this so its not the OS.
It also does it while using maps with navigation, which is useless, it doesn't seem to do it with Nokia drive though.
Maybe the Nokia AD-54 cable might work to control music controls.
Ok not maybe what you want to hear but if you only want to skip a track then just press the on/off button and you will see the media player controls at the top of the screen which will allow you to skip back and forth or pause play back, but if you turn off the password request in the lock+wallpaper settings then you will be able to just press the on/off button and swipe up to show the media player if that's what was showing before the screen turned off.
Hope this is of help.

Thats pretty much what I am doing currently, but it is a pain.
I just don't get why the option isn't there to turn it off.
It's not part of Windows Phone, it's Nokia's design choice.
So far there are three design choices by Nokia that I believe should be optional not forced on you.
None of these things affect any other Windows Phone.
This auto lock screen as mentioned.
The fact that the button lights are disabled in anything higher than low brightness, again really annoying.
And the fact that they have broken auto-brightness making it display far too dark, washing out the colour in the screen in the process effectivly rendering the option useless.
The last 2 were fine before the recent update so again it is Nokia that has forced this.
OK it may save battery life having it this way but I believe they should allow all these options to be adjusted by the user instead of forcing you to use it this way.
I had an HTC HD7 before and none of these things were an issue, don't get me wrong I like the Nokia phone better and it looks a lot better but I just don't understand why they are trying to ruin the experience.
