+1 for this request from me.
The unintentional unlocking in my pocket happens quite often and causes initiation and answering of calls as well as high battery drain.
Unfortunately my Veer unlocks already when the slider is moved about 2-3 mm.
It would be welcome to have a patch for solving this issue.
Possible policies on slider would be:
1. Don't unlock, but switch screen on for manual unlocking. Switch screen off again after 2 seconds.
2. Ignore slider entirely (saving battery...)
3. Screen on and/or unlock if
A ) slider is open for more than 1 second or so, or
B ) user hits the Space (or any other key), or
C ) If the brightness sensor senses darkness and the proximity sensor senses proximity
Some intelligent solution would be really cool :-)
