I keep the phone in my shirt pocket and it keeps turning on and I cannot figure out why. Is there a way to make the screen only turn on by pressing the screen?
Anyone know why it might keep turning on? Even as I sit here and type this message, the phone is in front of me, on my desk and the screen keeps turning on and off without moving it, touching it, or receiving any messages...?
Sometimes I look down and I see that the screen has turned on. Other times, it's not on, I take it out of my pocket and it still stays off. For whatever reason, in my pocket (without moving much and sitting in the same spot), the screen just turns on.
Is there a sensor involved? I can't imagine this is the culprit because when I take it out of my pocket, it stays off. Just sitting in my pocket, it randomly turns on...?

I do not know the answer but my phone just recently started doing the same thing, I will leave sitting on the counter and it will dim off and on without me even touching it. It is getting annoying because it is now running my battery down and I have to turn it off to save it.
I think I am just going to have to go and talk to the cell phone provider to so they can hopfully help me with this.

Well the last message was 2009. It is now August 2011 and my BlackBerry Torch is doing exactly the same thing. Just sitting on the desk dimming out and a minute later waking up with no apparent reason. Is it a fault or a bug?
BlackBerry Support, anu ideas?

THis happens to me too, with my new curve and last model. The worst part is that I am a pilot, and it keeps turning on while I'm flying!
I'd be very interested in hearing a solution. The only answer I've heard to date is that it might be because of the alarm--only thing is that I have had it disabled and it still turns on.

I was having the same issue. I searched the internet and found that doing Soft Reset usually solve some problems in your blackberry phone. So I did a soft Reset and surprisingly it worked. My phone's screen is not keep turning on again and again. To do soft Reset.
Press ALT + RIGHT SHIFT(CAP) + DELETE.
