    i thought the only way to unlock the screen is drag down that button on the screen...

    but when accidentally i pressed menu button ( when i was on screen lock ) i screen unlocked!!:thinking:

    when u press menu button while u are on lock screen ur screen will be unlocked...

    my phone have a bug or... ?
    can anyone else pls test this...?

    Hahah, I just found out bout this too! And I think its really not good as there's quite a high probability to accidentally press any of the 4 buttons + Menu button when the phone is the pocket/bag/etc...

    I like the menu button way as I find the other ways a bit too long winded

    Its just easy to double press menu whilst the screen is off. Completely bypass the lock screen.

    Yeah use a lock pattern and you can't possibly unlock the phone accidentally.

    This phone unlocks way too easy in your pocket. After a few days I put the lock pattern on to stop it, but that is a hassle to use every time. Then I found a toggle to turn off the lock pattern, which I use when I know the phone wont be in my pocket for awhile.

    I think screebl helps too. It keeps the sreen on when the phone's held upright, which means the phone won't lock whilst you're using it. That was something that annoyed me.
