Key Lock Switch

A dedicated switch to lock (de-activate) the phone's keys (buttons), preventing accidental key presses that may cause unwanted outgoing calls or wasted battery life.

Note that this refers to a dedicated physical switch, not a combination of standard keys that can be pressed to lock or unlock the other keys (which most phones have).
