    This seems to be a bigger problem in hot weather. If my passport is facedown in my pocket soon as I retrieve it 6 random apps open! Might have to keep I turned off whilst we're here in a hot state!

    It is the swipe to wake lol disable it or place your phone screen facing outward, not facing your leg or gluteus ( cant use ****) if you use the back pocked.

    Gone with trying to remember to keep phone face up! And added a password. Tried picture password 3 times but always end up 2 steps from lock out! Perhaps I'm not worthy of a passport

    If you set up a picture password it solves the ''pocket''actions.
    At worst can be some password trials.

    Setup a password. Then hold the 'k' key down to quickly lock the device. That works best for me.

    Turn off the "swipe to wake" function so you'll be required to hit the power button to turn the screen on. That should solve your probelm.

    Cheers guys password is working, won't use picture password as I've tried it 3 times and everytime nearly had my phone wiped. Didn't know you could disable swipe to wake, but I'm so used to that feature I couldn't do that.
    Cheers

    That doesn't make sense. Picture password only allows 5 failed attempts, then you have to type "blackberry" and then use your regular password for the remaining five attempts. I can't imagine that sequence of events taking place in your pocket.

    No, I know that, but in order to use picture password, you need to also have a regular password, and you can only fail the picture password 5 times (out of the 10 total) before it makes you switch to your normal password. Based on what's required to get to the 10th attempt, it's pretty much impossible to come close to wiping the device simply in your pocket.

    The leather flip case has a magnet that solves the lock / unlock problem. And it looks really good IMHO
