Thread: Have phone stay on lock screen without turning off

    Default Have phone stay on lock screen without turning off

    Over the summer I dropped my 3G and the headphone jack along with the volume and sleep/wake buttons broke; I've been able to operate my phone just fine using bossprefs to lock the phone and the home button to wake it. However, my home button is now broken. I installed mquickdo so I can simply imitate the home button by sliding my finger along the bottom of the screen, but as none of the buttons work, I can't wake the phone after it goes to sleep. I know that I can make the phone not lock in settings, but is there a way that it can not go to sleep but remain always on the unlocks screen?

    My gosh! Upgrade your phone already. Not only that it is a 3g but a broken 3g. One way is to download lockinfo and in settings put it to NO DIM. Should work.

    If you feel up to the task, you can pick up replacement buttons on ebay for under $10. Not sure about the 3g, but I investigated this for a 2g and found that the audio jack, volume buttons and power button were all part of an assembly on a single ribbon cable. Picked one up for $7 and worked great.

    Maybe you can do the same for yours, including the home button.
    Dis-assembly procedure can be found via Google. Might be worth a try since it is a very cheap solution.
