    When I'm texting someone and my screen shuts off I'm forced to unlock my phone. Are there any apps/features that will automatically unlock my phone when I slide it open? I don't know what kind of name this app would have... I just got my Droid 2 so it's still new to me.

    Not sure of all the options but lockbot adds the ability to shake the phone to unlock. May work for keyboard sliding.

    Why would your D2G shut off while you are texting someone? Unless you are pausing a bit from texting and the screen shuts off from inactivity? WidgetLocker has some good settings to take care of that. I'm looking through it right now and it seems to offer pressing any key to wake and unlock. Not sure about just sliding the keyboard out, waking it and unlocking it like that. I don't see anything like that around.

    Mylock works for this.

    I tried out Mylock and Lockbot, but neither have the ability.
    If I'm texting someone I'll naturally wait a minute or so until I receive a response. Without closing the texting window, my screen will turn off and lock from inactivity. I would like to simply slide open my keyboard and have the screen automatically unlock. Widgetlocker is costly and I can't see that they have this exact feature.

    Ah, yeah it is simple. So far I think it'll do. I honestly don't have a need to lock this phone anyways. Hopefully the whole airplane mode doesn't give me trouble. I'll probably forget.

    I bought screen tools 2. It's great, it unlocks the phone when you slide it open. When you press the power button it shuts the screen off & the side buttons do not turn the screen on. When you press it again it turns the screen on & you don't have to unlock it! There are a few other options I don't use.

    Try downloading screebl. Then your screen won't time out anymore while you are texting someone.
