    1. Say u push the power button to switch off the screen.
    2. Phone is in your pocket
    3. U walk about and somehow your hip manages to swipe your phone, turning it on before your password timer kicks in.
    4. Your hip presses on the call icon and dials a contact.
    OK I see. So the problem might occur for users who set a password. I didn't, so in my case it's very unlikely this might happen.
    Stupid question: can't the password timer be set to zero, so it gets locked and pwd protected instantly?

    Its not laziness. Its inefficiency.

    And i am already on 10.3
    So set up a shortcut key already and all you have to do is push the button (well long push on home) and you've just completed a black belt six sigma project

    Waves the efficiency flag..

    You cant set to zero. No such option. The playbook has tho, but not the phone.

    What? Lol.

    Swipe to wake is a great feature. Disabling it to avoid accidental swipes that may lead to pocket dialing, yea no issue.

    We've discussed this before for all BlackBerry 10 devices. If you want to keep swipe to unlock but prevent pocket dialing, put the phone in any pocket (usually pants) with the screen facing outside not facing your leg.
    Before I did that I would sometimes take the phone out of my pocket to find that it took hundreds of photos.
    They make for pretty cool wallpapers if flash was turned on Lol

    Ohhh and the hundreds of pictures taken by accident with blackberry devices :P

    Have a dozen cool ones, though. If you like blue colors, feel free to use them as wallpapers
    First one looks like a expensive drawing

    There is a new app called PocketSafe now
    available in BlackBerry World that prevents your phone from accidentally doing anything while in your pocket, even if you forget to lock the screen. PocketSafe is the only solution and it works perfectly on my Passport. It not only prevents pocket calling but also protects you from muting or dialing when you press the phone to your face during a call.
