How to lock volume buttons while phone is locked?

I am on stock 6.5 with s2u2 installed. When my phone is locked, the volume buttons are still functional...therefore, sometimes the volume will lower or even go on vibrate when I hit the button by accident. Is there something I can do to lock the volume buttons?

I use LockDevice and all buttons lock when phone locks. Maybe switch locking apps

Pocketshield and LockDevice are pretty rock solid

Re: How to lock volume buttons while phone is locked?

Thanks, but I prefer s2u2.

Anyone else have any ideas? I removed and reinstalled s2u2 a few times with no success. I believe this just started happening recently after months of use. Maybe the settings changed somewhere?

Are you on the latest version? I know they update that program pretty often.

I believe so, but it didn't happen the first few months on 6.5.

Re: How to lock volume buttons while phone is locked?

I too use S2U2, and I would like to know how to lock up volume key too. My problem is when I put my phone in the pouch, both volume keys may get pressed together. Combined with a touch on the screen, the phone goes to align screen mode. Sounds odd, I know, but it has happened more times then I can tolerate.

Re: How to lock volume buttons while phone is locked?

At the moment, there does not seem to be an explanation as to why this occurs.

My HTC TP2 has been using S2U2 for awhile and the volume controls would always lock when the screen locked. NO MORE!
One day they locked and the next they did not. I don't monkey around with installing all kinds of programs, so the device remained essentially the same from the time I installed S2U2.

The phone uses 6.5 but was never upgraded after installing S2U2 either.
Thus far, I have not found a setting or program that is causing the conflict with the device controls.

Over at XDA Developers forum, the same question has been asked, and no resolution found so far.

I sent a support email to the developer of S2U2 and am waiting on an answer which I will post if received.

What I did to limit the problems is to turn the phone in the case so the volume buttons face upwards (case is horizontal) not the bottom which reduces pressure on the keys.

I did not try a hard reset because at this stage, it is not worth it. The volume controls are NOT normally locked without having S2U2, so there is no real problem with the phone.

Wish I had a better answer.
