    that you can hit the menu button??

    My wife discovered this by accident. I think this might be the reason so many people pocket dial others by accident.

    As I said in another thread, I virtually eliminated unintentional pocket dialing by keeping the phone facing out in my pocket.

    Yep. Absolutely love that feature. I hate the whole slide-to-unlock thing.

    I love that, I'm not a fan of the slide to unlock at all...I didn't buy an iphone just for that reason.
