    This happened to me the other day! My phone got changed to July 17th randomly one day and it took me half the day to figure it out. My text messages were all out of order and i couldnt firgure out why. I thought it was something my 2 year old did but im pretty sure it happened in my pocket. FWIW i didnt have a locksceen either. Since then i have set it back to slide to unlock and have had no issues.

    In all these cases ... was the screen off when you put it in your pocket?

    Also ... the touchless control will activate the screen while it is your pocket.

    I have None selected for Screen lock. I had issues in the past when putting it in my pocket with the screen still on. Since always turning the screen off before putting it in my pocket I have not had the problem.

    Same here. I make sure the screen is dark (power button) before I put it in my pocket. However, a call received on blue tooth will wake the screen and cause phantom dials and other random acts if I don't put it back to sleep.

    Thanks for the responses guys. I always turn screen off and never used a lock screen on my gnex without issue. I find it strange that it always is the date time screen and sometimes changes are made. Thought it might be the capacitative buttons... never had them before. But maybe it is the voice control always turning on and thinking I'm trying to get to that setting. The Bluetooth is also a good thought as I keep the phone in my pocket and Bluetooth and Pandora are programmed to open with Bluetooth

    Happens to me fairly frequently.

    I don't use a lock screen and haven't had this issue. I do not use voice commands. It seems unlikely that it would get to the date & time menu by touch. Its pretty well embedded in the settings menu and I don't know of any shortcuts to it via touch. Perhaps its the voice commands. Good luck resolving this.

    Another idea ... retrain the launch phrase in touchless control while you are in a very quiet room and see if the unwanted behavior just stops happening.

    I train with "OK Droid now" and it launches with 'OK Droid" like "OK Droid time.

    i trained the stock phrase in a very quiet room on the first day the phone was out. this problem is intermittent, which makes it difficult to isolate it by testing various solutions.
