Unconscious Emergency Call

Summer time, sweat and short pants make me dial emergency number more than once a day.

It is impossible to lock the screen perfectly. It is so easy to wake up the phone by pressing space key and then either blindly typing the pass code or call emergency number.

If I disable the lock screen, I will dial my friends.

Can you just fix this stupid problem?

I hope I can only use the power button to wake up my phone, please.

You can. Swipe down on your homescreen and follow Settings>Display>Swipe to Wake-OFF. Now your phone will only wake when the power button is pressed.



There, stupid problem solved! You're welcome.  Smiley Happy
