    Hi All. When using the pattern lock on my Optimus S, it has an 'Emergency call" button at the bottom of the screen. I have pocket-called several numbers with that stupid button now. Are there any apps/settings that will get rid of it?

    I've done some searching and found where people have been putting a swipe app that runs over top the pattern lock, but I don't really want an extra step.

    I really like the pattern lock and would like to keep it. I just want to get rid of the button! I don't want to root my phone or anything. Thanks.

    That can be an important button when you need it. A phone case or sleeve may help avoiding pocket dialing.

    Thanks for the concern, but I've already weighed that risk.

    So....anyone know how to disable it? :)

    anyone?

    How about this question: Are there any apps that do something similar (without the emergency dial button)? I've been looking and I can't find any.

    To keep my pocket from calling everyone I use Call Confirm.
