I have the same problem. The single-press button design completely defeats the purpose. My old Curve required the pressing of two buttons (* and call) in order to unlock it. This made it unlikely to unlock accidently. I've had the Torch for a few weeks now and it's already pocket-dialed several people. Never had this problem with my Curve. Why the hell would RIM change a design that worked to one that doesn't? The only solution I can think of is to enable the password device lock which I'd rather not have to deal with. I like the Torch overall but this is a real design flaw.

This HAS to be a common Issue. Apparently there is no solution yet, it seems to be ignored. Lots of views, no replies. I find myself carrying the phone around gingerly in my hand. I am just not a holster type guy. May have to learn to be

Sort of a solution that i found in like 30 mins of having the phone and it unlocking itself lol.
Turn password ON and then set the convenience key to password lock, this way to call you have to unlock the phone with the PASSWORD not a crappy little button that tbh is a waste of space. Personally I'm waiting for a slide lock app similar to the iphone screen lock to come out for free, but until then the password lock will do.

Yes this is a very frustrating problem. I took the phone out for the first time last night and kept finding after locking it and putting it in my pocket it would self unlock. Surely with enough complaints they need to fix this problem. There doesnt even appear to settings for the lock button ie. duration of time button needs to be pressed to unlock. Do you think they could do a software update where the user needs to press it for two or so seconds to unlock?
