    Ozone Dial Key: How to stop it from dialing when bumped

    Because the green dial key wraps around to the side of the phone, I often find the phone has dialed the topmost number of the call list when it gets bumped 2x. This happens frequently when the phone is in my holster. Besides setting the keyboard to lock quickly or manually locking it, is there any other way to disable this dial key functionality (such as have to enter a small pin to dial), or otherwise solve this hardware problem?

    function and then * locks it? or unlocks it?

    i guess your other option would be to turn off the phone

    thank you everyone for your replies but I am hoping to find a programmatic solution, rather than having to type in a key sequence

    whats the difference between going to a program to lock the phone vs. pressing 2 keys?

    if you dont want to do key sequence you can go to start--settings--security--device lock (thats what it is on my Q might be different on an ozone) that locks the device too
    its the same as pressing the 2 keys but you can navigate to it through menus

    there is an app (i cant think of the name of it now) that locks the device but why when theres one built in that does the same thing

    not going to a program, but having it be programmatic. Big difference. IE, before a call is placed, having it prompt you for a 1 or two digit PIN or force you to enter a special key (ie 212-555-1212#). Some way to legitmize a call.

    Also, for those that don't know, simply pressing and holding the '*' key for 3 seconds also toggles lock. Makes it easier to do with one hand. This works for the '#' key as well to toggle the vibrate profile.
