    Default Disabling "press menu to unlock"

    Any way to do so? I keep unlocking my phone in my pocket and I am sure it is because I am hitting the power button on top then the menu button. I set the pattern lock to avoid this for now, but I really dont need to "lock" my phone. Just dont want it unlocking when it shouldn't be! I went through settings searching for an option but nothing. I have a feeling I am out of luck but figured it couldn't hurt to ask. Thanks!

    I have no clue, man. I had actually never known that you could unlock it by pressing the menu button. I've never run into this problem. You could put it in your pocket with the screen facing away from your leg. Maybe that would help?

    You have to keep your hands out of your pocket LOL. I didn't think that could happen because just touching the menu button with anything other then your hand won't unlock it.

    Is the pattern lock the only way to stop the menu button from unlocking?

    When using pattern lock, how many chances do you get before it cripples/ wipes the device?

    my **** seems to be able to touch the screen and wake the phone through my boxers and my pocket lining (I keep the phone in the back left pocket when I'm standing up)

    Pretty impressive how your rear end can press the power button and then the menu button in the property order. Hidden talent?

    I know it's weird, but once in a while I hear clicking from my posterior. And when I pull my phone out, I'm usually halfway through typing a nonsense text to a coworker's office number.

    Pretty sure it's 5 attempts and the phone locks you out for 30 seconds. No wiping of the device afaik.
