Locking Programs
 
I carry my stock Alltel Diamond in a pouch (I'm too old to worry about being cool anymore :-(), but if it rings while in the pouch, I inadvertently hit touchscreen buttons when pulling it out of the pouch. The answer, obviously, is a locking program.

I tried the one where you swipe your finger down the screen to unlock (can't remember the name of it), and it works fine right up until the phone rings. Then, it won't unlock under any combination of swipes or button pushes, so I can't answer the call at all.

I tried Sensorlock, and it works most of the time, but I really don't like twirling the phone around in my hand to answer it. Already dropped it once doing that.

I now have S2US loaded, and I like it a lot. But, so far, I haven't found a way to get it to stay locked when it rings-- it automatically unlocks when it rings, which defeats my whole purpose. Is there a setting to change that behavior?

Any other suggestions?

if only there were no hard buttons...we'd have basically no problems with calls being answered/dialed by our pocket

You can hold down the send key and configure it to lock the screen.

PocketShield is the one I couldn't remember the name of-- it works great except when the phone rings, then it won't unlock, no matter how many times I swipe it or push the button. I know not everybody has this problem, but that's what happens on my phone.

I'll try the Slide to Answer .cab, thanks!

There is also a Slide To Answer option you can turn on in S2U2.
