    Default How do you turn OFF the Knock on feature?

    I'm stumped and can't find it, if it's there at all.

    Where in the settings can I turn OFF the Knock On feature to wake the screen? I don't really want to use that. I prefer to just use the power button the old fashion way.

    Thanks.

    Thanks for the reply.

    I think maybe I didn't fully explain. Sorry.

    I want to turn OFF the Knock On feature because I don't want to accidentally unlock the phone if it's in my pocket. I prefer to just use the power button and just swipe across the screen to unlock it like other phones.

    I would think that the knock on feature is kernel related. Changing your kernel might be the only option. I don't know of any custom kernels so this isn't great help, but it's all i got.

    Go to the Dialer (Phone) app. Type in 3845#*850# (AT&T version)
    This will take you to the "Hidden Menu" Scroll all the way to the bottom. There is an option to turn Knock On/Off, off, there.

    I read you can disable it in the hidden system menu.

    I like playing with it myself, but in this day and age you should have the option to turn things off if you wish. This isn't an Apple product!

    put 850 in for the 985 for a att model and it will work. These numbers are the model number. Yes you can disable knock code there. It is the last item as you scroll down.
