    I don't see any emergency call option on my lock screen. What does it look like and where is it located?

    On a side note, that signal is sucking!

    It's on the lock screen when you use a pattern to unlock. I went away from the default "swipe to unlock" screen because I'm trying to avoid accidental pocket dialing.

    Ah. I found it.

    I don't think you can get rid of it. I had the same thing show up on my DX but when I used Widget Locker, it didn't show the emergency button. Only the pattern. I'm not sure if Widget Locker had anything to do with it. But if the OS loaded the lock screen then the pattern screen would have the emergency call button.

    EDIT: Nevermind. I just tried Widget Locker and the emergency button still showed up. Sorry OP. Not sure if you'll be able to get rid of it.

    My 2 year old called 911 by accident. I am always scared when she has my phone in hand playing with the pattern. To get rid of the emergency button on the lock screen, I am using go locker app now. The only disadvantage with that is to lock the home button, u have to use go launcher. Go Launcher is an excellent app. So i dont think i am missing anything.

    Hidden lock lite. Enable/Disable emergency call function among other things. It's in the play store. And it's free.

    I've been having the same problem - pocket-dialling "emergency" numbers. It's really worrisome as I know they can even fine you for making false calls.
    I'm wary of downloading third-party software - God knows what kind of nastiness you can catch that way.
    Is there a normal way to turn off this godawful feature?
    I can't believe that the creators of Android are that unaware of users needs and haven't fixed it in the latest version!

    Thank God for Go locker! After my son called 911 twice this week and 1 visit from the police I am able to add Go Locker to keep this from happening. If it wasn't for your post, I was worried that the police wouldn't be able to focus on their real jobs.

    Q1 What do you mean by "to lock the home button, u have to use go launcher"?

    Q2 When you are using go locker app, what will happen when you press the home button?
