    Would love to find one that also lets you unlock from a button other than the top.

    Anyone?

    The whole purpose of the button on the top is to keep the screen locked completely. If you havent noticed, the buttons on the screen can be pressed while in your pocket. That would kinda make the screen lock a moot point.

    No, I'm talking about pressing one of the bottom for buttons to then bring up the slide to unlock. Similar to the iPhone...

    I would like to see an app where the screen turns off but you don't have to swipe your finger every time to unlock the screen. Pretty much an app to make it like to Blackberry's lock screen. So when you press the top button the screen comes up where you left off when it dimmed and when you hold down the "back" button it will lock the screen. It's just really annoying to have to swipe my finger every time the screen goes off or times out. Plus this can save battery for those who have the screen set on 1 or 2 minutes.
