How to remove "Emergency Call" from lock screenSupport

    How can I remove the "Emergency Call" button from the lock screen?

    I have the pattern to unlock suction enabled, and every time I go to unlock the phone I click this button on accident. It's very annoying, and it's mostly a placement issue. If this function where higher on the screen this wouldn't be an issue at all.

    So.... until the correction is implemented, how can I disable this feature?

    Thanks for the help, everyone!

    I am on a different Rom, have you tried, settings/Lock Screen/Lock screen Options/ and check there if there is anything relevant to your question

    Widgetlocker? I dont think you have to be rooted, but not 100% sure on that. Other than that you will not be able to remove it really.

    You could check the "with swipe lock" box. That would require you to do 2 steps, first to swipe and show the pattern, next to do the pattern unlock. The extra step will probably force you to pay more attention and not hit the emergency call while doing the pattern unlock.

    Is the reason you hit the emergency call is because you wake up your phone using the home button? You could wake it up using the power button, that way your finger would be no where near the bottom of the screen.

    This feature is so annoying. It is active except when the phone is "swipe" only. I was at work with the phone in my pocket using FINGERPRINT lock on Galaxy S5. I keep nothing else in my phone pocket. I got a voicemail from 911 saying "this is 911 Emergency services. We have an open line to this number. Please call 911 again if you have an emergency. " And I always hear the keypad tones when I'm working. If I use swipe only, the phone opens CNN or plays video or music. I hate it.
