    Weird things happen in the pocket.

    Mine took itself off of the Airplane mode once.

    The other time I took the Note out of the pocket to find a terminal looking screen with a few options, one of which was to reformat the phone.

    I carry my phone in my pocket exclusively. I use the fingerprint unlocking method and have never had it unlock in my pocket. I've never had a problem with the fingerprint unlock, either.

    I use the finger scan to unlock as well and I've had no problems at all with it. Never had it unlock, or open in my pocket.

    I don't like the finger security. Doesn't work well for me. But I do have the Flip SView case. I never have problems

    What do you have selected for your screen lock? if you just have swipe it could be easily unlocked with a couple of nudges. Also, this issue happened to my Mum, she has the S5. The phone would unlock in her pocket and start playing music while she was working (I thought it was quite funny) I suggested to her to remove the Air Wake up function. As the phone was constantly waking up in her pocket. Do you have Air Wake up activated? try turning this off and see if the issue continues. On the Note 4 its located under Dexterity and Interaction in the Accessibility section in settings.

    Yup. I use the fingerprint unlock as well when used in the pocket and it works for the most part except for one major flaw...

    When you get a call and using Bluetooth the screen comes on as normal while in the pocket. It takes a few seconds for it to go black. This also happens when you hang up. During this period, it registered a boat load of touches just about removing every widget I had, deleted some apps and contacts, and made my phone hotter than Venus killing my battery in just a few minutes just to name a few.

    Now mind you, this doesn't happen often....but it does happen....and it's really...REALLY freakin' annoying.

    Think I've sorted it for now. Gone back to original lock screen. Was using cover, and start. ( not at the same time) seems to be doing fine now. Shame I can't use dash clock. Thank you to everyone for the replies

    Back to work today, and still the same problem. Will have to use a pattern or pass code to unlock I think. Phone started playing all the alarm clock sounds
