Disable the Screen Saver

You can stop a screen saver at any time by touching the screen. After your phone is idle for the specified period of time, the screen saver starts again.

You can disable a screen saver—prevent it from starting, even if your phone has been idle for the specified period of time—by doing the following:
  • Disabling the Screen Saver setting. When you disable the setting, the screen saver does not display, even though the USB flash drive is still attached.
  • Removing the USB flash drive. The screen saver does not display until you attach the USB flash drive again and your phone is idle for the period of time you specified.


  1. Navigate to Settings > Basic > Preferences.
  2. Select Screen Saver > Screen Saver then select Disabled.
  3. Select Save.
