    Just got my Charge today and I really liked how the DX could wake from pressing the home button (former iPhone user).

    I don't see a setting anywhere natively in the phone to allow this, has anyone figured out a way to enable this after being rooted?

    Only way I know is to use widgetlocker. Seems the stock lockscreens disable all input except for the power/standby button.

    Try No Lock on the market. It WILL disable the lock screen but will allow you to use any hard button to wake your phone (at least it will on X, Thunderbolt and Incredible2).

    EDIT: This does NOT work on this phone. I went to the store today intent on getting this phone and gave it a shot and worked with settings but no go. PS.

    It seems Widgetlocker doesn't work correctly with the Charge. As an alternate lock screen it is perfect but easy wake is not 100% reliable.

    There is a method to completely remove your lock screen (I believe it works with all Galaxy S phones) that I tried but it doesn't fix the easy wake problem.

    I use WidgetLocker but the easy wake only works ~70% of the time.
