    The on/off button is in such a bad place. Is there an easier way to turn it one? Also, can you get rid of that lock swipe?

    Thanks everyone!

    I hate the on/off button with a passion and if there was an easier way, I'd have found it.

    I have to ask....are you serious? :icon_eek:

    My God, life must be pretty easy for you guys, if this phone is so hard to turn on for you.

    To think I thought the guy asking for an App to turn the phone off was lame. :icon_ devil:

    I have people that turn the phone on and off for me, so this concern is beneath me. Still, I can see how not having a staff to manage your phone for you would be inconvenient . . .

    I can easily turn the phone off with one hand...

    I guess I do have pretty big hands but it's not a real problem with me, but I do agree it can be in a better position like on the side of the phone.

    Yes, I AM serious.

    When driving the car and I need to turn the phone on, my big mitts have a hard time getting to the power button. So much so that there are times I end up getting distracted from the road. I thought that endangering the lives of others was an important matter.

    I'm very happy for the rest of you that don't have this issue but coming in here to point out that you think we're lame for complaining about something we don't like isn't productive nor is it helping our problem.

    WOW! Golly gee how come I never thought of that!?

    Shucks I just won't use the phone anymore while in my car. I'll just toss my $90 bluetooth headset into the trash cuz now I'll never need it again!

    Thanks so much for solving this for me.

    Mods you can close the thread because this issue no longer exists.

    How about turning the phone on before you start driving?

    Maybe you're right, but it sure is fun :) Relax, no offence intended, it's just an..."odd" complaint is all. I suppose there could be worse to complain about, which speaks volumes about this phone.

    I see... so before I leave for a 5hr drive I'll just tell it to never go to sleep? This is something I don't think I should have to do.

    I don't have too many complaints about the Droid but this is one of them. Just because some of you don't have the problem doesn't mean we all don't.

    I don't need to relax because I am not excited. I'm using extreme sarcasm and some humor mixed in with the facts because I am in disbelief of how some people behave.

    If you bothered to read my post... I said I sometimes had to look at it to get my finger on the power button.

    I can't even use my bluetooth headset OR voice dialing until I get it powered on.

    There's no reason to look at it to get your finger on the button.
