    New Droid owner, user...I am beginning to HATE the swipe to unlock screen!

    It locks the phone when I am on a phone call, so I have to unlock the phone when I am expecting to find an END button...making it hard to hang up the phone DAILY.

    I find myself SWIPING to unlock all day 100's of times...and it is getting annoying..

    Is there any way I can disable the swipe to unlock...and just have it like my old Blackberry was...the LOCK button locks and unlocks the phone..thats it!?

    I have found numerous apps that disable to the Lock Screen but it leaves the volume buttons able to open the phone, so my pocket could wake it up...

    any ideas, please help.

    Try No Lock. It's free in the market.

    Same here. That seems odd.

    I've never had mine lock on a phone call. In fact, it shouldn't. I'd take that down to the store and have them look at it.

    Your phone shouldn't be locking when on a phone call.

    So, 'no lock' disables the lock screen but still effectively 'locks' the screen and outside buttons without having to swipe your finger to unlock right? just unlock with the power button?

    My phone has never locked on a call. I would take it in and let them look at it.

    I also agree that the phone should not lock during a call but it does require the slide up/down to decline or answer.

    No Lock causes problems with the alarms so I would not suggest that either.

    However, I have found a program in the market called Easy Answer button that bypasses the lock screen to answer the call. It gives you a similar screen to what you get stock when the phone is not locked and gets a call

    I don't remember my phone ever behaving this way, either.

    But for several months I've been using WidgetLocker as a replacement lockscreen. It's not free, but a $2 one-time fee seems more than reasonable to me (and to give you some perspective, less than a year ago the idea of paying for any app seemed ridiculous to me).

    It's very customizable and the developer is very responsive. Check out this thread right here on AF for more info.

    So, does this app disable the volume buttons and get rid of the swipe to unlock?

    I just want the phone to lock, and to unlock the phone, simply press the upper power button...like a Blackberry..

    Oh, I never considered completely getting rid of the lock screen. I guess since I didn't come from a blackberry...

    Regardless, a quick Google search revealed Screen Mode Widget which seems to do what you want.
