    Sorry if this has been posted before but one of my gripes about the passport is driving me crazy. I've always carried any phone I use in my right front jeans pocket. Never had an issue and easy access and no sitting on it. My problem started with the passport. The power button is obviously too sensitive for the way I carry the phone. I've noticed it with the volume buttons also, where if you're not careful when you pick the phone up, you'll turn the volume down or up. But my question is, am I the only one having the problem of at least a third of the time I carry my passport, it ends of shut off in my pocket? It's very irritating to put your phone in your pocket and go to use it of check it and it's shut off. I've come to check and make sure it's on now when I put in in the pocket just to make sure. And pulling a phone out of the pocket to use and it's off is not good. I know what's happening. When I sit, the power button is on top and it's pushing on my hip and shutting off. Is the any way short of a case, which is not an option, to stop this from happening?

    Do you lock it before putting it in the pocket? I lock mine and put it in the front pocket of jeans or pants with power button down and never have had it shut off.

    A case may help, but it will make the device "bigger"

    Otherwise, as many Passport owners have found out, it may not be a really good idea to pocket the device:

    Ya, won't put a case on it.

    And yes I look and then push the power button again to shut off the screen. Best I can tell, if the buttons pushed for a few seconds, even if locked, the passport will turn off. And with the power button so easy to push, it's causing this issue.

    Try putting it in reversed. power button down. perhaps it is the way the button is pushed by your body when you sit.

    That might be an option. Not sure if it would help, but it's worth a shot. At this point, I'll try anything since this is a very aggravating situation with the phone being off and missing calls and texts.

    A hard shell maybe do the trick. And would not add bulk. The shell will prevent the button from been press when its in your pocket.

    I lock the screen and put it with the screen facing outward.

    I carry it in my front pocket, but it has the official black hard case. It sits with the screen against my leg and with the bottom oriented upwards . I haven't experienced any sudden wakes or accidental dials, let alone screenshots or the likes.
