    ive just noticed today that with the phone locked, upon recieving a call the phone switches to being unlocked even after the call is finished.

    i do look after this phone much more than i have done with other mobiles, but it strikes me that if i do misplace it, the first thing i do is get a mate to ring me to see if its under somthing or at someones house ect.

    it seems that doing this unlocks the phone for anyone to use or to have a nosey through your personal stuff..

    is there an autolock after call feature? or an app that does this?

    Go into settings - security - then set an unlock pattern.

    That way if you loose your phone or you do not answer it nobody can unlock the phone without knowing the pattern.
