Same here. Can't dismiss alarm or answer calls without unlocking phone. I've changed the keyboard app, changed the screen lock type, and nothing works. Please help! And the keyboard shows on the easy screen turn on option too!!!
@jackalg1: As a workaround you can open the Phone app > Tap the 3 dots in the top right > Settings > Answering and Ending Calls > Press Volume Up to Answer Calls. Not ideal I know, but will bypass the need to unlock the phone first.
