    I don't have an S6, but with Lollipop lock screens in general, they have a camera icon on the bottom right and a phone icon on the bottom left, with a padlock icon in the middle. If you don't swipe up from near the centre line you will activate the shortcut to these other areas.

    I am left-handed so I always tended to open the Camera by mistake.

    No way around it on near stock devices like my Motorola at least.

    You just need to adapt your swipe gesture.

    If it's something else please register and someone can help further.

    press and hold on an empty space on one of the home screen pages. Scroll to the home screen page that you want to set as default page and press the house icon at the top of the screen, below that delete icon. That page is now set as the default home screen.

    The question was about the dial pad opening, but thanks again. You have surpassed 10 posts now so you're good.
