I did it, and became an early adopter of a brand new phone. I went out on the 12th and got the first S2 from my local t-mobile store. I was very impressed with the phone from the get-go. Unfortunately, now that i've had a little over a week with the device two issues have popped up.
First and foremost is that my lock screen has dissappeared. I have had multiple time now where i have hit the screen unlock button in my pocket and dialed random numbers. I also almost purchased a $10 app while the phone was put in my shirt pocket. I spent at least an hour with customer care, and unfortunately all they can recomend is a full factory reset. I am throwing out hope that someone in this forum may know whats going on and can help with a better solution.
Second, I keep having a symbol pop up in the signal area that looks like a no smoking sign, Every time i try to use the phone or browse the internet it says no mobile network available. After a reboot ala removing the battery and waiting 10 minutes after then finally my signal comes back.
Please help!!! I really don't want to reset my phone. I have a few hours in setup that I really don't wanna do again!!! Thanks guys
Having the same problem. Screen turns off but does not lock.
I had this problem and this is how I solved it. Go to settings, then display and set your screen timeout ( I have mine for 15 sec) then go back to location and security and set your screen timeout and set to immediatley. Voila no more pocket dials.
Also I alway hit the power button to turn off the screen, which then locks immediately, before I put in my pocket.
Hope this helps
I have a free program called "call confirm ", no more pocket dials for me!
Ya, the probably just popped up for me and this is after doing a factory reset.
Oh and if you hold the lock button, it just turns off the phone. No menu popup.
Typo, meant to say "the problem," not probably.
This isn't a fix to your actual problem, but is a great solution to the symptom. Check out WidgetLocker. It's worth every penny and then some. I don't remember how much it costs (I think it's cheaper in the Amazon App Store), but I've gotten such great use from it that I'd be happy even if I'd paid $10.
I figured out what causes the phone to unlock! I've had it happen a number of times!
When you get an incoming notification, the screen turns on. While the screen is on, the slightest movement will unlock the device. Then other things can indvertently happen.
"Solution"? Set up a lock pattern. Menu-->Settings-->Location and security-->Set up screen lock
That might be a bandage fix with the widgetlocker. Maybe I'll try it out. I think a factory reset would do better.
The problem isn't with the notificatons. I already have it setup for a screen lock with a pin.
I think I figured out the problem, I hadn't realized this before, but after doing a hardware test *#0*#, the lock screen would go away along with the phone menu options after holding the lockscreen button.
It was the second time after doing a factory reset that I realized it was this test that caused the lockscreen not to show up anymore.
Most likely it's the sleepmode test that causing the problem, and for some reason it'll keep the lockscreen from appearing.
I had the same problem. T-mobile acted like they didn't even know the problem existed. I had to tell them about this post. What a joke! Ultimetely, I had to pay $20 to replace my phone and got a new SGS2.
I think the test for the lcd is fine when you look at the different colors, but beyond that, it will mess up the lockscreen. I tried it without doing the sleep mode test and still the lockscreen went away. So now I believe it's the the camera tests or the functions tests.
I did several things today including hardware test, created an account on google im app.
suddenly lock screen problem started.
download go locker from the market, or lockbot pro.
