Poor phone lock system


Nov 18, 2007, 10:19 PM
I love my W580i! It is such an improvement over my old V3m Razr, but it is certainly not without it's flaws. One in particular is not something I can tollerate much longer.

I am not exactly sure what is going on, but through some random (seemingly fairly simple) combination of accidental button presses while my phone is in it's case at my belt, or in my pocket, the phone will unlock, go to the calls menu and dial the last person I had talked to.

This has happened to me three times in the past 2 days, all three times while I am at work, and I don't know what to do as I use my phone while working to sell Cell One contracts, but I can't be tossing away all of my minutes by accidentally calling my girlfriend twice a day when I am supposed ...

I am having the EXACT same issue...what a a freakin, royal pain in the ARSE! I love the phone sans that problem. I even had it hook up to the internet once! wish the outside lock buttons could be disabled and just use the slider lock.

It is your magnetic latch on your case. Take your locked phone out of it's case and it probably is unlocked now. Relock it and pass it over the magnet on your case and VOILA unlocked..WTF!
