    Ok I realize why the "should" lock with a touch screen. But there are times (in my car, on my desk at work) when I would prefer that my phone does not lock OR use a one of the hard buttons to unlock it vs the unlock swipe or a pin.



    Is there an app for that?

    I don't know about an app but you could change your Screen Timeout and it would take longer for the phone to lock itself. The max time is 30 minutes but if you did this it would drain your battery quicker (unless you keep the phone connected to a charger).

    I already have it set to 30 minutes.



    I really just hate the process of unlocking the phone, wish I could hit the camera or volume key and have the home screen come up.

    I don't much care for the way it is setup but I would rather have that than accidently dial someone or start an app that would drain my battery down.

    I'm not having any battery issues despite the 50% bug. I don't think I could cause too many accidental dials, and if so I could deal with it.

    There is a new app on the market called No Lock. Have not used it but it says that it turns off the phone's locking.

    Oh this is EXACTLY what I wanted. One touch to turn it on if I need it. Even has a widget to turn locking on and off easily.



    Thank you so much!
