Question [Q] Prevent phone from automatically unlock after accepting incoming call?

Hi guys,

I've recently realised that after I receive a phone call, the phone automatically gets unlocked after the call has ended.

Is there any setting to prevent this?

I am so used to stuffing the phone back into my pocket and do not wish to inadvertently butt dial someone or launch apps while the phone is sitting unlocked in my pocket.

Hope you guys can help on this.

i dont know what kind a security lock you have, if its a pin it shouldn't, thinking about this, im sure i have to put my pin code to access the phone during and after a call otherwise this would be a security loophole.

I'm just using the standard Slide to unlock setting.

Slide to unlock is pretty useless without security. It even let's you use the notification area so I doubt it would fully prevent pocket dialling.

Anyway, doesn't surprise me.

Umm, yes I know that it doesn't offer much security but I don't want to punch in a password or use the camera security each time I want to access my phone.

The lock screen doesn't automatically lock after a call without security. Power button to turn off the screen does. So after a call, turn off the screen.
