I hate locking keys (dont ask, I just always have and always will) and quite often I take my phone out my pocket to see 'Application Running' and open it to see my phone ask me if I want to connect to the music shop. I dont want to remove the music shop, nor do I especially dislike it; I just dont use it. Is there anyway I can remove this option from the menu on the front keypad? Or at least set it to default to media player when I hit play? Its just annoying when I try to stealthily check the time in class if I have to open my phone and hit end to see it.
No. But what keys do you need to hit on the outside with the flip closed so often while in standby mode? Readylink/voice record, camera, voice dial, flashlight (volume keys), and media access.....all those things are usually done with the flip open. When your phone is ringing or you are in a call, the buttons are usable without unlocking. Why not just keep the external keys locked? It's easy to unlock in the RARE case that you will need to use one of the buttons. When the external keys are locked, you press a button and it shows the time. Easy money.
