I am having a problem with this phone waking in my pocket. I am using a case which makes accidentally triggering a button next to impossible, yet the frequency of wakeup is high. This is most notable when an application is using location services. Anyone seeing this?

Just because the phone is awake doesn't mean its actually on. Show us your battery stats and usage.

it wasn't on. good suggestion though. @dpwhitty11, I get that, but in this case, I am using the term "waking up" to refer to it actually turning on. As in, I pull it out of my pocket and it is already on. I know the buttons are not getting bumped.

Mine was doing this all day when I got it. I'd feel the warmth from it or hear sounds. Pull it out of my pocket and it's in some menu or some program is open.

It's so bad I changed to a pattern lock to deal with it.
