    At work i always have my phone in my pocket. When someone calls me, i answer it with my handsfree. But that "wakes up" the display. So during the call, and after the call, im pocketpressing the dial.
    And sometimes after i have received a call and ended it, the screen stays awake.. So when i got home and looked at my phone i was locked out for 30 minutes. Now without touching the homescreen it bounced up to 60 minutes.
    I tried hardreset without help.
    How can i prevent my phone from "trying to unlock" while in my pocket?

    Welcome to Android Central! Which phone do you have? Some phones have options to have the first lockscreen be a swipe, after which you get the PIN keypad -- that prevents accidental keypad presses. Some phones also have a feature that can detect if it's in a pocket, and therefore prevent the screen from coming on.
