    Tried searching for it but found nothing...

    On the lock screen, normally, you'd have to slide your finger down to unlock the phone. But I noticed that my phone would unlock by pressing the menu button. Is it just me or are others having this problem? Any way of turning it off so that only my finger can unlock it?

    mine does the same thing..when its locked (screen is off) and I press the middle button to unlock it (or the power button), instead of sliding the screen down you can press the menu button and it will unlock...

    yeah... really dumb. ruins the idea of protecting your phone from being unlocked accidentally while in your bag or something that can constantly push buttons.

    Its for people who are still used to older android devices and used the menu button to unlock like the g1 and original myTouch. Nothing wrong here. Just so you know.
