Can't turn off the lock screen on the Fire table. It is an option for most other android devices, but not the Fire.
Ads can be removed if you pay Amazon the 15 or so bucks difference between the device "with special offers", and the one without. But you still have the lock screen itself that you have to swipe through.
NOTE: I do NOT speak for or represent Amazon in any fashion. This is a customer to customer forum.
