Locking Device With TF Enabled

Ok, so I guess I'm a moron but I can't figure out how to lock my device if I'm using TouchFlo (I can use it fine with that disabled). I know I can just push the button on top of the phone to turn the power off but the problem is, when I have it in my coat pocket & I get an incoming text or something, the phone lights up & then the screen is on & the next thing you know, I'm calling somebody & not knowing it. Is there a way to put lock/unlock on my today screen while using TF?

Does anyone know if this is possible? I'd rather have a software button then going through the 'Long Press End Key' option.

You can get S2U2 here http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=412418

or you can use a key remapping tool.

And that's not really the 'lock' I want. I want the same lock as the Mogul had & as this phone has if you aren't using the TouchFlo option; where you can see your texts & calls coming in. I don't want to 'shut off' my phone which is really the 'long press end key' does in my opinion. Is there a way to just 'lock' the phone without putting it in airplane mode?

You could download Slide2Unlock to get the iPhone type unlock. Do a search through the forums and you will find the download. Personally I just use the Long Press End Key to lock my phone because slide 2 unlock does it automatically and when I am just at home I get sick of constantly unlocking my phone

Long press end key brings up a menu, with one of the choices being lock.

Go to start and then settings and then system and select Long Key Press. I have mine set to display the quick list which gives you the options to go into airplane mode, lock device, terminate data connection, or set vibrate/ringer or you can automatically set it to one of the four options
